Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
About 6 months ago, I went to start the car and nothing happened. Literally nothing. The radio, lights, fuel pump, etc worked fine but when I turned the key to start, nothing happened. No noises, no clicking, no turnover. I left the car overnight and returned with a friend the next day and when I went to see if it would start it fired up no problem and worked fine for about 6 months. Now, twice in the past month or so it has happened the same way. The only thing that seems to ''fix'' it is time. I've heard theories from a faulty key transponder (although the key that won't work somehow works the next day) to alarm start shutoff.
Don't have solution just the same problem but only when cold . Won't start when clod good thing live is S Alabama but it does get get below 55 often in winter Between Nov. And March

This could be something simple. Your starter draws far more power than anything except for the a/c clutch (not in play here) Since all accessories are functioning, it's likely that the battery terminals are oxidized. A high-draw item will actually break the connection temporarily. This condition will also change with humidity and temperature. Remove them and use a small wire brush or sandpaper to clean the battery posts and the inside of the connectors on the wires themselves. If you have done this and still have a problem, then you should start looking for other larger problems.
