Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Will not start

!996 JGC died while running yesterday all wiring has been checked for ground an continuity. Terminals are good fuseable links good. When you now try to start the jeep it has power everywhere but when you engage the key it clicks at the pdc somewhere in the relays? all the fusses are great it never loses power just clicks no sylinoid noise no nothing just clicks @ relays but I dont understand if it is starter or starter relay why the vehicle died while running and now will not start?

Battery keeps dying, no headlights

Check to make sure the power lead from the alternator to the battery has a good connection. Sometimes the connectors get corroded, or the wire separates inside the insulation. You can check the wire for continuity with an Ohm meter...make sure to disconnect the wire at both ends when you use the Ohm meter.
Make sure the battery has a good clean ground. Make sure the alternator is grounded to the engine and the engine ground strap is intact and has clean grounds on both the engine and frame. Test the alternator with the engine running using a voltmeter across the battery. You should read 13.5 to 14.7 volts. If the alternator is not charging the battery will go dead under normal operation. If you don't get the correct charging voltage either your connections are bad or the alternator is bad.

No head lights, taillights, brakes lights.

A fuseable link comes through the fire wall. I had to solder a wire to my '92 van to keep it working after it blew. It happened a long time ago and now I'm not sure what it effected.

No voltage to fuel pump or eec relays 1988 e150 van 5.0 died while driving put new starter and solenoid in about two months ago any ideas

I'm not positive the wiring is the same for trucks and vans, but you should have a yellow wire for both relays that go to a fuseable link off the starter solenoid. The key switch powers the EEC relay on, and the computer grounds the fuel pump relay on.
You may want to check the fuseable links and power coming from the key switch.

1989 ciera orange wire going to the oil pressure switch was accidently grounded. Will turn over backfire but not start . Fuel pump won't power up. No power to fuel pump relay. Took relay apart manually...

You didn't post an engine size but you are correct in thinking there is a fusible link that blew when you grounded the orange wire but there is also an inline fuse that protects the oil pressure switch and the fuel pump relay. It is usually located on the firewall.

You can check the fusible links near the starter for continuity. If one of them is burnt up start there by replacing it. If none of them are bad you will need to find the inline fuse. At least the 3.3 liter engine is set up this way.

I turn the ignition switchand the fuel pumps do not pump up. i checked the ems, relays, enertia switch, fuses. and fuseable links. i can ground pumps at terminal and the pumps will work. there is spark....

Pour some gas down the intake manifold and see if it starts to verify this problem. If it starts you may have a bad fuel pump or possibly a bad ground for the body check all your body grounds. But if you're able to ground out the fuel pump and you hear it run you may have a clogged fuel filter. If you can keep the fuel pump running see if it will start if it starts you may have a wiring problem. Remember that computer controls both the positive in the ground going to the fuel pump. Good luck.

Will start then die.

if it starts runs and dies instantly, the fuel pump could be the culprit, its getting the signal to sqirt fuel to start but then no voltage to continue pressure.. check fuel pump and also worse case senerio is the ECU (main computer could be bad)
