Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Ive had a problem with the alternator in the past with a lose wire, ( i replaced it without knowing the wire came lose) and this morning i turned the car off while in gear, popped it into aux and put it into park/turned off my headlights. i decided to go ahead and try and start it up just in case and it wouldnt turn over, no click, i barley heard a ding ding ding when i put my key in. My headlights wont come on nada. Any ideas?
Sounds like you could have a bad battery/corrosion. The reason is your car was just fine until you turned it off. This means that the alternator was putting out the juice to run your car with no help from the battery. This indicates a good alternator but a battery that is no longer holding a charge. Take it to Autozone, Pepboyz, etc and have the battery tested.
If you have a voltmeter handy, put it on the alt and on the frame of the car or engine block to test for voltage output. If it's 14v then you got yourself a most likely bad battery or check for corrosion on both ends of your battery cables.
