Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee
My Jeep Cherokee Sport will start without problem about 30% of the time. The rest of the time when you turn the ignition, it suddenly and abruptly stops as soon as it hits the starter, before it has a chance to turn over. It has been suggested that this could be caused by an alarm system wired into the starter that is preventing it, but it seems that if that were the case, it would never start..? What else could be causing this? Vapor lock a possibility? If so, how could I find that out?
It sounds like your starter is getting ready to die completely. After disconnecting the battery, take off the starter and have it tested.
