It could mean the alternator has gone bad already... with the car off, the battery leads should read 11-12V.. with the car on, the battery should read 13-14V.. if it's lower then it's not charging your battery and if it's higher, it's damaging your battery....

SOURCE: Car won't turn over. Nothing. Lights, panel,

i would check the condition of the battery, and battery cables, and also to the starter, doesn't sound like fuses, also check ground wires.

SOURCE: Had 94 jeep grand cherokee

Doesn't sound like even a questionable mechanic
would do what you said

No one would ever remove a gas tank and not
replace the fuel pump. That is just stupid, for the
amount of work involved.

Look on NAPA for the cost of the pump

After that experience, I would pay for the
tow ,not to deal with them again

$900 at the start was high,now it is
close to dishonest

SOURCE: I own a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. Bought it

Hi there cristina bam! If the core was bad it may have been leaking. Many newer cars on the road these days have a sensor specifically made to monitor the coolant level. If the collant has leaked out there is a very probale chance that the sensor is preventing your Jeep from starting to prevent damage. Add enough fluid to the coolant system to fill the motor block and radiator. If it starts it was the fluid level, if not, there is a greater underlying issue at hand. I really hope that this helps you out and if i was of some assistance please rate my solution. Have a great day!

Why2006 town & country shuts down when ac is turned on

T&C's seem to have really bad electrical systems. Could be either the voltage regulator or the alternator, most likely the alternator. Most battery shops will diagnose for free.

94 jeep wrangler runs 45 seconds then shuts down

You will have to figure out what is quitting when the engine stops.
If you are loosing fuel to the injectors, it could be a pump relay, or something with the injectors.
If you can spray carb cleaner into the throttle body and keep it running, look for a fuel problem.

if it acts like you turned the key off where the motor just shuts off without missing and sputturing i would for sure look at changing crankshaft sensor or may be a camshaft sensor if it has one. once sensor looses track of timing computer will shut down motor.

This sounds like a bad alternator, its sounds like it sometimes charges and somtimes not, check the wiring to alternator and if all is good then repolace the alternator.this should be under warranty. i would ask them to just replace the alt. hope this helps.
