    Well, i did as you said Takethis88, jumped the car, removed the negative cable from its battery terminal and car continued to run without a hitch. I kept the car running, making sure all the electrical sytems worked. All checked out except for the raido. I let it run for an hour, until i started hearing what sounded like air in the radiator. The temp began to climb (i think i need a new head gasket now...great) i tried to restart the car on its own power and all i got was one click from the starter and the lights faded to black. *sigh*

    Well, this thing is a piece. I got it for $400 its got +200k miles on it. The current motor was suposedly pulled from a later model. Do you think it could be a voltage regulator? When i was trouble shooting the raido being dead, i pulled the radio fuse, it was good, plugged it back in and then the top center console lite up and showed outside temp and compass direction. It was "out" before i pulled the fuse. o.O Ghost, Bugs. Its got me stumped.

Sounds like the alternator is bad. Start the truck, and while it is running, you can test the incoming voltage with a multimeter. If you do not have a multimeter you can remove the negative terminal. If the truck quits, you need a new alternator. If it keeps running with the terminal disconnected your alternator is fine. But if you replaced the battery and the cables, then I would be pretty sure that the alternator is bad.

    That is very odd because the two are not related. But it sounds like a bad battery. And it would be very coincidental that it overheated at the same time.

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont hold a charge and needs to be jumped. When trying to start it makes a clicking noise and the console instruments jump. Is this the battery??? Or the alternator?? Or...


First remove and clean battery cables and battery posts with a wire brush or sand paper. Make sure battery is charged and check to see if it starts. Then check battery condition and charging system. The problem could be cables, battery, or alternator. Check them in order and repair or replace as needed. Check cables, battery, belts(tension and condition), and charging system in order. Do this because bad cables will give false readings for other tests and so on.

Assuming you dont have a blown head gasket the most likely thing is a clogged radiator. Lee

Wont turn over but when i jump it it starts then


bad cell in the battery won't hold the charge, also check alternator, once the engine is running the alternator should keep it running even with a bad battery, chances are the fouled alternator caused your battery to fail also
