Q: Not Starting on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep would not start after numerous attempts.
I finally took the car out of park and then back in park, it started. So far this
has not happened again.

Your neutral safety switch is going out. If it does this again, try starting it in neutral. If this makes a difference, then the switch needs to be replaced.
I had the same problem on my car, took it to the dealer and they replaced the neutral safety switch but after a few days it was doing it again. I found a good transmission shop on the name of the shop is Winchester Transmission in Campbell, CA. I spoke with Patrick and he was able to adjust the linkage or cable or something under the console to fix the problem. It's been over a month now and no recurring problems.
