Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee 2 Door
I am having intermittent starter problems with my 95 Jeep Cherokee, or so I thought. The first time it acted up I had the starter tested and was fine as well as the solenoid last summer. I cleaned all the cable connections on the starter and replaced the battery posts, and bought a new battery too. Everything was fine until a week ago when it started to do it again. The only way too start it is to have someone turn the key while I go under the vehicle and ark the starter to engage it. This does not always work though. Sometimes I need to have jumper cables hooked up as well because the battery seems to have been drained. I replaced the starter relay in the fuse box inside the engine compartment as well. When I turn the key I do hear the solenoid kicking in but nothing else. Any ideas???
Make sure the battery grounding cable (the small wire from the battery to the body) is intact. If it comes loose you will have this problem.

Check the small wire on the starter to see if you are getting 12v there with the key turned. If you are, then it is possible that the starter (&or solenoid) that checked out good last year is not good now. If no power at small wire, then check neutral safety switch.
