Check your power to your starter if you have power then check your trigger wire to the stater make sure the starter is grounded and the battery is grounded

Will not start

If your battery is good then your starter is likely frozen. Tap the starter wiht a hammer from the end. this might release it back to its rest position. then use a screw driver to connect the terminals (positive and ground). If it hums then your stater is fried and you need a new one. or it may try to crank the engine. Either way you may as well replace it.

Hello I am in a pickle. Here is the situation. I am haveing start up issues with my 97 grand cherokee. the first time it was because the battery cables were not cleaned and connected tightly. Now it is...

In order for your starter to operate, you need 12v at the main cable and that reading should not drop below 9.5 with the key turned to the start position. You also need to see 12v at the small trigger wire terminal with the key turned to start. (same terminal you jumped to with your screwdriver).
If you have replacement terminal ends on your battery cables, make sure the wires are clean as well as the contact surfaces on the battery. Also make sure that the grounds are good.
Your power going to the trigger wire goes through the neutral safety switch and the starter relay in the power distribution center. A fuse is either good or it has failed. It will not work "sometimes"
If you have power at both ends of each fuse they are good.
If you have power (as I outlined) at the starter, chances are that the starter itself has worn out.

I took my 92 jeep wrangler's distributor cap off, put it ack on, and put all the wires back on. Now it wont start, it wont even turn over.

If the engine won't even turn over, it has nothing to do with the cap or wires. Perhaps you accidentally damaged or disconnected the battery cable to the ground, or one of the wires going to the starter? These are located in the same general area.

95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time

Bad solenoid i would guess. Not making a connection there. Any basic wiring and ignition switch problems should be alleviated by jumping the starter with a screwdriver. I would check the solenoid and starter brushes

I have a jeep tj 4.0 2005. When I try to start it nothing happens. The starter does not turn and i have changed the battery for a new 1. I have checked my grounds on my starter and also the fuse ive...

First, using a digital volt/ohmmeter, check the power at the main lead on the starter. It should read full battery voltage. If not check all connections at the battery and to the starter. Next, check the small trigger wire on the starter with the key turned to start. There should be 12v there as well. If not, Check the starter relay and the ignition switch. If you have 12v at the main wire and the trigger wire, replace the starter, providing that you can turn the engine by hand.
I can't tell you what has failed but I've just told you how I'd find the problem.
Good luck!!

92 jeep wrangler has power but wont turn over to start

The terms "turning over" and starting are often confused... Cranking (turning over) is when the starter turns the engine, regardless of the end result. Starting is when the engine actually runs (even if for a moment).
If your problem is that the engine is turning when the starter is engaged, but not starting, then you have either a fuel or spark fault.
If the engine is not turning, check that the battery has a full charge, and holds adequate power when loaded, that proper voltage is reaching the starter and there is a good engine ground. Power should also be present at the small trigger wire on the starter when ign key is turned to start position.After checking these things you can begin to make a decision on what needs attention and proceed from there.
