Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Does not turn over but once in a while when I push forward on transmission stick (automatic trans.) it starts, so I'm guessing there may be a contact in the gear selector itself. It has only 30k on the vehicle. All battery cables and posts have been cleaned. Engine does not turn over. Could it be starter or selonoid and how do I test to see if it's a starter issue? Jeff

Check the neutral safety switch for adjustment and operation. The switch is on the right side of the transmission, opposite where the linkage goes in on the drivers side. Usually the switch has a two foot harness with a connector at the end. The two center contacts opposite the retaining clips are the ones in play when starting and should have continuity between them in either park or neutral.If not you need to either adjust switch position, replace or rebuild switch.
