Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The truc tries to start but it won't turn over. I replaced the battery because it died but now the it won't start. Any suggestions?
As long as you can jiggle the battery cable and it helps, you have identified a problem in that area. The solution would be if you have side mounts use a small wire bush or old throw away tooth brush with about a cup of water mixed with a table spoon or so of baking soda, and clean all the corrosion off the terminal connectors.( The part that connects to the battery ) If post, clean the inside of the post connector by using a battery terminal cleaning tool sold at the parts store for a couple of dollars. As long as your terminals are dirty or lose the alternator cannot get the electrical charge to the battery and your battery will go dead and or get very Durr! Ruhh! low. Oh yea after it gets dark and you turn your lights on with the battery terminals lose or corroded to the point they don't let the alternator charge your battery, the battery will use all the stored voltage very quickly and the lights will get dim and when you stop your engine will turn off and probably want start back up with out a boost from a good sumaritan.even though the battery and the alternator are like new.
