Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country

1996 jeep cherokee country

Turned on to warm up, turned off and 20 minutes later...nothing. all interior lights, alarms etc work, but there was NO noise from engine compartment. volt gauge reads 14. it's a 4.0. Changed battery and it started fine for two days. Today I went to start it, it clicked once, tried again and it started right up. I turned it off to make sure it was going to start again because I didn't want to get stranded and I had no engine noise at all, again. but the gauge read 14 and I had all the lights etc inside

Sounds like the starter is going out. Autozone will check those for free. It's just 2 bolts mounting the thing. It's under the passenger side rear of the engine. Undo battery, those 2 bolts and keep track of which wires go where. Run down to Autozone for a check or a new starter.

1996 jeep cherokee country i have fuel and spark engine turns over but still will not start.at one point i crank it for the longest time it started i warm it up then the next day it did the same thing...


When the jeep is cold, turn the key to the on position, without cranking the engine, to see if the check engine light is lit up, on the dashboard. If it is not lit up then the ecu is going bad, slowly dying. If no check engine light is on, leave the ignition turned to the on position for a while(may take up to 30 mins) and the check engine light should then come on and the jeep should start. If this turns out to be the problem with your jeep, then your ecu is in need of repair.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee is blowing cold air for the first 30 minutes of my ride home (20-degree weather), then warms up slightly but never gets hot -- i'm guessing heater core (it has 200k+ miles)


It is most likely a thermostat. As your car gets older the thermostat begins to lose its spring like properties and stays open all the time causing your car to never warm up.

If you can't tackle right away, start your car in the morning and let it run for about 15 minutes to warm up. Be sure to turn the heat on full blast and recirculate the air.

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.
