Question about 1991 Jeep Grand eer
Have replaced the batterey but this didn't fix the problem. For instance today it was used all day but tonight went to start it and wouldn't turn over. Batterey was okay.(Battery 2-wks old) It has done this on several occassions. Usually after sitting for two or three days it starts up again. Drive it for a few weeks and then it does same thing. Is there anyone that knows whats going on?
The ground has corroded off the sending unit.You can access this by drilling out the rivits in the access panel under rear seat on drivers side.

Unit has a draw somewhere that needs to be addressed. I have found the auto starts sometimes can cause this. But if the draw is through the negative side it could be tough. You should take it to the dealer and have them perform a draw test on the entire vehicle.

Pumping the pedal on an injected vehicle does pretty much nothing to aid in starting. Try either moving the pedal to one particular spot (experiment) where it starts or put the pedal on the floor and back off quickly when the engine fires up.(if it starts this way, likely you have an injector that is leaking.) What you are doing while pumping is actually giving the fuel system time to re-prime. You may have a bad regulator or pump check valve or as I mentioned, a bad injector. Aside from guessing, there are specific tests that need to be done with a high pressure fuel gauge.

SOURCE: Jeep Cherokee starting issue
On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate
