Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country
My son's 1998 Jepp Cherokee Sport recently started having a problem. It wont start. The dash lights up so there seems to be power but no clicking or any engine response at all. We tried putting it in Neutral and starting it that way still nothing and I mean nothing. No click like you usually get when the starter is bad. He checked the connections to the starter they all look clean and new. Any suggestions?
Try this first. With one of you under the car whack the starter with a hammer as the other of you turns the key t the start position and holds it there. No wimpy whacks here give it one or two good ones. If it is a bad starter it may start this way. If it does, a new starter motor is in your future. Very easy to change on a Jeep. If it doesn't work let me know and we will go further.
