Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 1996 Jeep Cherokee will not start. It will crank, very slowly, but not start up. I noticed yesterday that it was slow starting.
I already replaced the starter 14 months ago. Last weekend, I thought I noticed a burning rubber type smell.
I'm a single mom, have no money to fix it and am hoping it is something simple.

Hey Mona, 1st thing u should check is the battery. Most auto parts stores offer a free check of your battery and your charging system. This will tell if the battery is bad, or if the system (alternator) isn't charging the battery. Yes, it could be a starter problem, but since yours is only 14 months old, it should be ok. Let me know what they say, I'll help some more if u need it. Also, how do the battery terminals look (where the cables clamp on to the battery)? Is there corrosion build up (powdery deposits) on the cables and battery terminals (where the cables clamp on the battery?) If there is, u may just have to remove the cables, clean them up w/ sandpaper, coat w/grease or vaseline to prevent future corrosion. It could be as simple as that to fix, so check this 1st.
