Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I just installed a starter into my jeep, when i finished the installation i hooked the batery cables back up and started it up. it staerted great, but wile it was running i heard a weard noise. I shut down the jeep and the noise kept going. i looked under the hood and noticed the starter was still functioning. I disconected the batery and looked at the starter carefuly to see if there were any wires crossed, which would be hard to do because the possitive wire gets tightened down with a nut and the start terminal plugs in. is there anything else that whould cause this or did i buy a bad starter. Thank you Ernie

It could be a defect. if this starting system has a starter solenoid mounted on the fender or firewall instead of on the starter itself, that is suspect also

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Why is my car trying to start when i attach the


Sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck on, most likely need to replace the starter, sometimes what can be done is tap the solenoid with a wrench or a small hammer and it may come loose, if it stops i would still recommend replacing the starter because it will happen again 9/10 times. Also check the wiring to the starter and make sure the start wire is not shorted or installed improperly. If there is constant voltage at the smaller start signal wire, the problem is somewhere in the wiring or the keyswitch.

Jeep Cherokee starting issue


On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate

Need easiest way to change the starter motor on a 98 2.5 td cherokee


Not difficult...remove the battery cable on the battery, remove the bolts that hold the starter to the engine. Remove the two wires on the starter (if more than two, mark them so you put them back correctly.
Reverse process to install. If vehicle will not start after you are finished, close all doors, lock the drivers door with your key, then unlock...this re-sets security system.
