Question about 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.
