SOURCE: 95 Jeep grand cherokee dead battery everyday

You need to check the battery drain. Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and using a multimeter between the negative terminal of the battery and the now disconnected negative lead check the amperage which is being drawn from the battery. Your reading should settle anything between 0.03 and 0.20A but hopefully nearer the lower end. If it is above this then you will have to systematicly disconnect each electricrical item until you have a good reading. Once you have get a good reading on the multimeter you should be able have a good idea of what was causing the drain. Good luck

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.

Battery drain, fuse #12 in 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


On the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee the # 15 fuse is the IOD circuit. (Ignition Off Drain) The # 12 fuse is the power windows. Both fuses are 50 amp.

This IOD fuse #15 powers the distribution box that contains the 50 amp fuse. Pull each fuse in the under hood.

Pull each fuse in the under dash. Check for on the passenger side floor is an additional fuse panel.

Before going to far suggest at night checking for any lights lit. The draw is about right for a small light bulb.

Typical draw for parked car is around 100 milliamps

Suggest that you disconnect power to the car for several minutes. Reconnect the battery. The object is to reset the body electronics module.

If the computers in the modules get a glitch they can cause a drain. By cycling the power, disconnecting battery, they will reset to factory settings. Reported it can take up to 20 minutes for the circuits to drain before you can reset!.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ Electronic Control Modules

the following web site does a great job of explaining all that is going on. What appears to be simple to troubleshoot is not so easy. He comments about delay before sleep are important. Testing after overnight may result in a different drain rate. Make sure that your battery meets specifications. In 2000 the drain rate may be relatively high and the reserve capacity of your battery low.

Battery discharges in about 3 days if not run.


it may have deffective diode on the charging system(the alternator). 14 volts is an over charge in a battery. ampere reading must be on what the battery designed.

The easiest way to isolate a draw is by pulling fuses one at a time. When the draw goes away you can research the circuit that the fuse supplies power to.

Obviously you have a current draw from somewhere, and one of the easiest ways to find it, is to hook a 12 volt test light between your + battery terminal, and your + battery clamp. Just remove positive clamp, have one end of test light hooked to clamp, and the other attached to post of battery. As long as test light is bright, it's showing a draw. Then start pulling fuses from the circuits that you suspect may be causing the draw, like alarm system, door locks, etc. When the light dims or goes out when fuse is pulled, you found the circuit causing the draw, or one of the draws. Keep in mind the memory on your stereo will cause a slight draw for sure.

I have a 93 grand cherokee put a new battery in it starts fine then when you let it set for a day or so It flattens the battery, but nothing is staying on I checked, what could it be


Think about your statement!! If nothing was staying on,beyond the computer memory,clock etc,the battery wouldn't drain down. Start pulling fuses,with an AMP Meter in series with a battery cable,until you find the circuit. Then work that circuit.

Have you tried to pull one fuse at a time to see if you can find it that way. From your post I am going to assume that your are using a test light or meter between the battery term and disconected cable. If not try that as you pull the fuses and narrow down the draw. Don't forget to pull the light bulb from under the hood and make sure that the dome light and all other asscessories are turned off.
