Engen light oonly comes on somtimes on dash not on no start

sounds like a short in your ECM. (electronic control module) the computer that runs your systems. it also runs the check engine light and lets you know when a sensor or something isnt working. you will need a good mechanic that knows how to do the electronics in a car.

01 Jeep Grand Cherokee Will not start, the dash lights do not come on and it makes a clicking sound. occasionally dash lights flicker on but still does not start and clicking sound continues when key is...

your battery is dead...plain and simple. try to turn on your headlights, if they do NOT come on then its obvious what is wrong. if the dash lights didnt come on then more than likely thats the battery. ultimately you may have to replace the alternator, that could be the cause for your dead battery not being recharged by the alternator while the vehicle is running. get a jump and leave the car running/driving for at least 30 minutes, turn it if the car starts and runs you may have to wait and see if you have the same problem in the near future, if so then it isnt your battery thats the problem, it would be the alternator at that point.

My dash lights are on and the truck won't turn over.

you have water leaking into the fuse box causing a short cicuit , inspect the fuse box's, inside car and in engine compartment and see which one is getting wet , will look rusty, maybe still have some water left in it etc , then find the leak

No start starter spinninig

If you turn your key on and off 3 times very quickly leaving it on the third time, your car will read any trouble codes it picked up by displaying them as numbers in the dash like p42 for example. Any service manual on this car will tell you what these codes mean is wrong so maybe this would be a good place for you to start.
