It sounds like the wires from the battery to the starter solinoid are burned out, possibly even more of them to the main fuse box under the hood. You will have to start looking for the burned wires you can already smell and replace them. Starter and Battery area are a good place to start.

Ive been having to jump jeep, so i replaced starter and it wont crank over the battery is good and there is power to the starter cause it just clicks now

Mike- sounds like a possible relay problem OR you could have gotten a bad starter just have your auto zone guy test it for you if this is an older model the solenoid was separate from the starter in some cases Mopar in particular they would go out also I have been known to give the side of the starter a good thump with something heavy:-)

Car won't start. Lights and radio flickered while driving for a couple days then car wouldnt start. New alt and good battery. Tried to jump and lights come on but radio doesnt. Theres no starter click

Check the fusible link wire first.

Then check battery voltage.

Then check the cleanliness and contact surfaces and the tightness of the battery cables. Do the same on the starter solenoid connections/wires.

Have you tried jumping the car yet? What have you tried so far? I would get someone to jump it real quick. Theres other ways to see if battery is dead but a quick way is to get a jump then tell us what happens. Good luck-

If the ignition switch fuse, starter relay, battery, and starter are all new, why wont my jeep crank

Here are some possible reasons:

Park/neutral switch is open.
Poor ground connection to starter.

You can test the park/neutral switch by either jumping the solenoid (connect the hot terminal to the start terminal to see if the starter cranks--if it does, the ground is good) or by interrogating the starter relay socket. To interrogate the relay socket, use a 12 volt test light connection the clip to battery positive. Probe the socket terminals with the test light. If only one terminal lights the light, your park/neutral switch is bad or the start wire to the solenoid is bad.

2005 jeep gc wont start. replaced fuel pump,replaced battery, run for two weekes, wont start but it click clicks

will it start with a jump? check battery for full charge, maybe alternator is not charging, check battery connections all the way down to starter, check selonoid by cross jumping terminals to engage starter.

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

My jeep has had trouble starting. It turns over

First check the battery you may have fried one of the cells this would have made the pop sound, take the battery out to have it checked at a parts store, Also do this check if the battery is good, with the lights on and heater fan on have an assistant turn the vehicle over while in the front to observe the headlights if they dim considerably it's a battery or starter if the lights don't dim there is a bad connection or bad starter solenoid or in line fuse link, follow the starter wire and check for the presence of bad connections or bad fuse link on starter and solenoid wires.

Car would not start and made a clicking noise. I

It sounds l; like the starter solenoid has gone bad or the wire to the solenoid has gone bad. Check the wire harness to the starter and solenoid on the starter. If the wire is good, then it's the solenoid that needs to be replaced. If you remove the starter, Auto Zone can test it for you and should have the solenoid for the starter alone or it you like you can replace the whole unit. Starter and solenoid together. Good luck and hope this helps.

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...

First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)
