1999 Cherokee Laredo-v8

Will not start. I have lots of power but when I turn the key absolutely nothing happens. All it does is click. I replaced the battery yesterday thinking that was the problem. Still nothing.

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo will not turn over when I try to start it. No clicking sound - just nothing. The electrical is all fine; opens with keyless entry mechanism, lights go on, windows roll...

I would use a jumper cable from the positive battery terminal to the starter to see if the starter and solenoid are good. If the starter works you probably are having issues with the ignition switch electric contact base. The part of the switch you put the key is the tumbler. Below that is the contact base where all the electric stuff happens . Yours is probably dirty or broken , but can usually be changed easily by taking off the steering column covers. You may need some special tools (anti -theft sockets or screwdriver inserts). The anti-theft screw and bolt tools are available from a lot of tool supply stores.

It sure sounds like a starter solenoid issue, they act just like that, had exactly the same concern on my car, no crank just clicks under hood, new starter solenoid contacts cured the problem. I don't know if your solenoid is rebuild-able or not, I think it is a Japanese starter so most likely it is.

I had a problem with my Jeep doing the same thing. It turned out to be the Crank shaft senor. It would just turn off even on the highway at 60mph.
If you can change it yourself you will save a lot of money.
