Question about 1993 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

Starter won't engage or turn over

I recently replaced the engine in my 1993 Jeep Cherokee and it will not start. The starter does not engage to turn over the engine. I have checked the starter and the starter relay and have taken a screwdriver to cross the leads to engage the starter with the key on and it does click a couple of times and then it stops. I believe that I have possible hooked up a couple of electrical connectors wrong and can't seem to find any problems. I have also checked all fuses. Please help.

    Thanks for trying but in the second sentance I stated that I had checked the starter. The starter and silonoid are good.

Its the silonoid that bolts to the starter.the brushes inside the silonoid are not making good enough contact with the copper probe inside. solution buy a new starter or check the voltage going to the starter by checking the hot from the battery and the hot going from the starter to the alternator.

My 93 jeep grand cherokee wont start but it is cranking over but not catching....checked all wires sprk plugs fluids air filter everything is connected been getting conflicting reports that its the starter...


if the starter is turning, but the motor isnt, its the starter failing to engage the flywheel. The rotation of the starter is supposed to force a gear forward to engage the flywheel, when that gear freezes up, the starter spins and the motor doesnt.you can try givinbg the starter a few sharp taps with a small hammer or wrench to see if it frees up

Starter spins but dose not turn over


If you can hear it spin(starter), but not actually hear the motor turning over or trying to crank/start..... Sounds like starter not engaging-Replace starter. Small possibility flywheel is damaged, but less likely.

Having trouble with 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited not starting when the key is turned. It clicks but does not fire. It takes several tries to get the engine to start.


Three items to check there. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure, check the starter relay (quick way is to steal another in the power center and switch them). Also check the engine grounds and that the starter solenoid is engaging. If you have power at the small terminal on the starter when the key is turned to start, good bet the starter is bad.

The starter is bad. Solenoid is good, the starter itself is bad. You can remove it and take it to Schuck's/Chief's/Kragen/NAPA, they will test it for FREE. You can't beat free!!!

Starting issues


ASE mechanic.
A couple of different scenerios. first could be the ignition switch not suppling voltage to the starter. You might have good battery voltage at the starter,but not the trigger voltage from the ignition. thats the small wire on the starter. OR if i cranks a couple of times and then starts it might be a crank sensor for those engines are known for that sensor problem. keep me posted
