2006 Cherokee Refuses to Start

So our 2006 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4x4 refuses to start and I am at a loss as to why.

It has power (though we tried jumping it just to be safe) and I could hear an electrical sound going on whenever I turned the key but it just refuses to start.

I was able to get it to start eventually by turning the key to 'On' and rowing it through the gears a few time before putting it back in 'Park.' But that seems to be a temporary fix and I would prefer to not have to do it unless absolutely necessary. When the car did run it was not throwing any CELs.

Also I have a 500 mile trip coming up and I can't afford to get stranded if I need to stop for gas or something.

Is it possible that this is due to the throttle sensor or electric shift sensor?

Thanks in advanced!

Wrong forum. Look for the tech forums and then under grand Cherokee for your year.
