Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Battery is good but the state of charge is low. Check for proper charging system output for excessive key off electrical draw. What does that mean?
Very simple my friend! start the jeep. put a multi meter on the battery on dc volts. if it is below 14 volts, the alternator is not charging the battery. you can also preform a draw test by disconnecting the positive terminal from the battery. set your meter to amps.(you may also have to move the jumper in the meter) connect you meter to both the battery, and the terminal. you shouldnt see anything about 10 milliamps. make sure all lights are off, and all doors are closed. if you have a draw, start by pulling 1 fuse, and seeing if the amps drop. if it doesnt, put the fuse back and go to another fuse. also, if you have anything aftermarket (radio, remote starter, etc.) this is most likely the issue

lf you have replacement cable ends on your battery, check that wires are not corroded under the straps. Also check alternator ground (run a ground wire directly to the alt case) I have seen "lazy" regulators at times but this is very rare. Also make sure drivebelt is tight enough to prevent slipping. Has your battery been charged and load tested?

hi, now this could be down to one of two things now the first and most likely would be that the starter motor has packed up so this would need replacing.
Now the other problem you could have is with the imobiliser now the problem you have with this is their is nothing you can do yourself to even check this it has to go to a garage and go on a diagnostics check so as they can find out if the imobiliser is working or not.
The main cause for the imobiliser not working is going to be that the battery is flat in the key fob witch controls the central locking if this is flat then your car wont start.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: won't start, battery good
I understand how you feel about underhood tasks. The termnial connections were the easiest for me to start with. I suggest you have a tech check thie wiring on this vehicle. You obviously have a bad ground wire that will need to be traced to find a solution.
