My 1998 jeep cherokee wont crank or start whats wrong? i replaced the battery and still wont crank over but all lights and electrical work


sounds like it is the starter or ignition switch. To shade tree test the starter you can jump it out with a screwdriver, this is sort of tricky if you have never done it before. Someone will need to turn the key and then you take the screwdriver and tap the posts on the starter, if will arc the screwdriver., but start the vehicle. You can also pull the starter out and have it tested. The see if it is the ignition switch you will need to trace out the wires and make sure they are all working correctly. Good Luck Tim

Try to start it and nothing happens it wont turn over


Check all your fuses..It maybe just your fuse for the ignition...which in fact turns your starter over.... And yes your starter is good, if it tries to crank when you jump it..Now if your fuses are good, then yea your problem mat be the ignition switch itself....But check all your fuses first...Goodluck...

Car wont start


The starter solenoid is not getting power from the ignition switch to activate the starter. To repair, you will need to get a schematic and trace the wires out. It could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complicated as a bad ignition switch.

My 1996 cavalier Z24 wont start


pull a wire and ground it via useing a screw driver at the end of the spark plug boot to check for spark / if their is no spark / ignition control module / there is also a crank shaft position sensor / located on the back side of the motor under the coil packs / pain to get to / also the nuetral safty switch / to check the neutral safty switch diconnect the big harnest at the neutral safty switch put a fuse tester to the yellow wire / have someone turn the key / with the tester grounded the light should come on / now we know the ignition switch has power going through it. if there is a no power at the yellow wire / bad ignition switch / does the car have a relay located at the top of the radiator core support (up by the radiator looking down drivers side)if it does not gm will install one for free / if there is / look for the purple wire coming out of the relay and Follow it down to the starter / reconnect the neutral safty swtch / touch the small S (the smallest screw) terminal on the starter soilenoid / have someone turn the key forward check the light / this will detemine if the relay is good / CAREFULL NOT to touch the big starter wire with the little one it will jump the starter / I HAVE THE SAME CAR / Hope this helps
