Kinda Sounds more like an alternator problem. I would take your Cherokee to Autozone (or anywhere that will check your battery for free) and make sure that its a battery problem. Also you may want to look at your alternator as well (which if you take into autozone they will check for free as well). Maybe belt is slipping around your alternator drive which in turn is not charging your battery. I would try out the free stuff and go from there. :)

Sincerely,

JC

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. Serpentine belt broke, so I replaced it, but now it will not start even with a jump. only clicks. Starter?


Maybe.
But what caused the belt to break ?
You might want to make sure the crank will turn and that the engine is not locked up.
If the crank turns, you would need to check for battery voltage at the starter.

Squealing when start up, battery power goes down when turn on defrost


The squeeeel on startup is a loose serpentine belt.OR a faulty water pump.The voltage drop is a good indictator the belt tensioner may be playing up.The very 1st thing to look at would be the belt.When you put on the defrost,the alt.loads up and would add to the squeel.Hope this helps

2005 grand cherokee squealing and loss of coolant


Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel

Look's like you done every thing that need's to check, just make sure your belt is adj' right, cause an alternator under a load will drag so make sure it's tie.Good luck and x-mas.

You need a new battery. The lights only take about 10 - 15 amps, the starter takes 200 - 400 amps, Replace the battery and all will be well

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Multi-rib belt Removal & Replacement


Check on upper rad shroud or under hood for routing diagram. Depending on what engine, procedure may vary a little. I wouldn't panic on replacing anything other than belt unless you noticed something noisy under hood in last while.
If not up to it, a mechanic should be able to do it for you in a few minutes usually, but won't hurt to ask before, just in case.
