1994jeep cherokee wont start and reader is not reading anything the mechanic told me its the p.c.m. what do you think


If the code reader cannot read the pcm then it definitely needs to be repaired. When you turn on the ignition, does the check engine light come on, in the dash? If not, the pcm/ecu is in need of repair.

Put a new alternantor in 2 summers ago. Only drive in summer, son in collegs. Had a dead battery today. The auto store said the alternantor was bad.


If you are not using the vehicle except during the summer, You should really have a battery tender (2amp automatic charger) attached to it. There are normal items that will otherwise drain the battery over an extended period of time (radio and clock to mention one). If you jump started it when you found the battery to be dead, it's possible to have the alternator fail as it cannot charge a dead battery
(alternators are designed to maintain the state of charge, not re-charge. If "requested" to re-charge they will run full on and eventually burn out).
Auto stores often do not have experienced help. Therefore, it's possible that your alternator may still be OK. First, completely re-charge the battery and have it load tested to make sure it's good. Then, do a quick check using a volt meter. Running voltage measured at the battery terminals should be between 13 and 14 volts. You should see a drop with all accessories on including headlights on high, but the voltage should not creep downward even after fifteen minutes. If after running, you start seeing numbers below 12.9 the alternator or regulator is bad. (regulator is part of the computer so hopefully it's not bad).
Good luck!!

New starter, alt, and battery but battery drains over night boost car and runs all day next day no start. manual transmission so i roll down hill and it starts but not when battery is totally dead


there are not a lot of computers that could be causing the drain, so baring any aftermarket accessories you should start searching for an indirect short to power

prop hood and leave the doors open... this is important because you do not want to wake the computers once you start your test

next, unplug the negative battery cable and insert a DVOM in series

drain should be less than 80mA after 30-90 minutes

if drain is higher, start pulling fuses until the drain is isolated

Something keeps DRAINING the battery?


If you disconnect the negative battery cable and connect a 12V test light between the battery negative post and the negative battery cable terminal the light will burn if there's a draw. Make sure all electrical consumers are off and all doors closed when doing this draw test. If the light is on start pulling 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, when it goes out that's the circuit that has the draw. Trace it from there.

It may be the old ford problem of a shorted starter, an internal starter problem will drain your battery over night. Or check for lights on inside the car, also glove compartment lights or under the hood lights.

check for power drain in accessories such as under hood light/glove box light/trunk light sometimes these switches stick on and drain battery-but i would also recheck the battery again if one failed never know could be from same batch

95 jeep cherokee not starting


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.
