Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
Well if the Start did go out, then power is not going through the system to turn the engine over. The start is a series of, for lack of a better term, Cogs, like in a grandfather clock. If one of them doesnt get turned because of lack of power, then it wont work. Also, if it is a Manual Shift Jeep, you can still perform a rolling start, which means getting it rolling, then you quickly pop the clutch and turn the key at the same time.
That should get you to the Auto Shop, in case you dont have the tools or knowledge to replace the starter yourself. Usually when a car wont turn over, the simpliest solution is the starter. It can very well be the Fuel Pump or FIlter, but its very much more rare. Starters just wear out, because their teeth get worn down.
If its an Automatic Shift engine, then i would suggest, in case you dont want to take it to a shop, because it does cost a heavy penny to take it to a shop, i would suggest going down to an Auto Parts Store and picking up a Haynes Manual for your car. It will have All the details for repairing your car. I would suggest reading the sections on Fuel Pumps, Fuel Filters and Starters at least 4 or 5 times, really memorize the information, but still have the book on hand when you go to replace parts. I can not stress enough on the fact of having that book with you. It can save a lot of work and money having it. Also, if you ever decide to trade the car or sell it. Having the book is a nice bonus to mention for potential buyers.
Also Do not be afraid to ask questions, You can always contact me here or at Ryd66@yahoo.com, I will be glad to help in all ways that I can. I understand the need to get the car fixed.
