Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

No power to start vehicle

Alarm had gone off and shut down vehicle. Thought it was a faulty battery post or cable connection. Replaced connecton and now I can get the lights to come on but when I turn over the battery there is not clicking sound or is just dead. Checked the battery and it is charged also tried boosting the vehicle but still nothing. Any ideas?

Trying to jump start the car once the cables are connected the alarm comes on and I unlocked the doors with the key.

On my 94 Sovereign there is a switch inside the centre console that will switch off the alarm, not sure about the 96. You could try locking all the doors. connect the jump leads and then unlock the doors (the bonnet switch for the alarm I think is the same one for the under bonnet light so you might have to tape it down whilst the bonnet is open, just to confuse the alarm )

Good luck

1989 Ford Econoline 150 Van will not start

Most all vehicles have main power cable to starter solenoid which is mounted on the starter where the power cable to the switch connects OR there is a separate heavy gauge red wire connected to the positive post of the battery that leads to the ignition switch. Also check your ground cable by connecting battery jumper cable to negative post on battery and other end to metal frame of van.

Vehicle was accelerated when tires were off ground and then vehicle died and alarm starts when trying to start, it will try to turn over but no spark

Battery light came on and car wont start now when i shut it off

will engine crank?? if not, recheck battery cable connections. if vehicle ran until shut off, tells me that your charging system kept vehicle running until vehicle was shut off. alternator light can be related to faulty alternator and or bad battery.

Something is running all the time in my 2008 chey impala that brings the battery down

You need to measure the parasitic load on the battery.Roll the driver's window down,shut the door,open the hood(disconnect the hood light if it has one).I let it sit for a few minutes to let anything automatic shut down,then use a clamp style ampmeter to look for a large load.If there isn't a large load,then move on to an inline ampmeter.You will have to disconnect the battery(preferably the negative post),and connect the meter inline between the post and cable.It is adviseable to use a battery disconnect between the cable and post to power the car back up,and connect the meter at the post and cable after allowing the car to power up,then open the switch/knob to allow current to flow through the meter.(this will prevent the initial surge from frying your meter or blowing the fuse).You should see less than 50 milliamps on a typical vehicl(maybe a little more if you have certain accessories like an alarm system).If you see more,pull one fuse at a time until the load drops off.A common parasitic load I have found on GM vehicles is the lighted vanity mirror(s).The switch doesn't always shut off,depending if the visor is up or down.This draws about 500 milliamps,enough to kill it in a couple of days.The largest draw I ever saw was on a GMC Jimmy-the rear wiper motor wasn't parking correctly,and it was drawing 16amps!

I replaced the battery for Ferrari 599 model 2007 and after the replacement the vehicle wont start and showing on dash an elctro fault.

I am sure you installed the battery posts right Positive to Positivem newer vehicles ECM shuts it self completley thinking the vehicle is being stolen. Do you have an alarm system in this Ferrari? if so then that might have been activated.

Wont start when key in ing. and turning on than cutting off if battery dead

factory alarm, when manually unlocking the door the lights flash & horn usually go off & the car will start & shut off within a second or 2. Have 2 96 jeeps that do it the panic button on the keyless entry is the only way to shut it off. If the battery has died & a new one is installed it trips the panic mode as well. If the battery is dead but vehicle starts with a jump but shuts off soon after jumper cables are removed, the alternator is bad & cant keep the computer powered up & will shut down the vehicle. A little more specific with symptoms will make diagnosing much easier.

I replaced a battery and an alternator in a 2005 Explorer, Checked voltage after, was getting 14,4 volts, all seemed well, next morning battery was dead, jumped truck, alternator putting out 13.6 volts,...

I don't know where you checked alternator out-put? I'd check at the alternator bat terminal and across battery posts, both, the reading should be close to the same.
It's possible when you took battery cable loose to install ammeter in series, a module may have shut off? Use a jumper wire to keep connection till you get the ammeter hooked up. Just my opinion.

Take off jumper cables it dies

You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

1995 nissan 200 sx will not start

check for a live feed to the low tension wire at the starter when a second person operates the ignition key. if no feed check fuses relays and then back of the ignition assembly. has it got an after market alarm fitted that may have gone faulty and has shut down the starting circuit. if so you need to find the wiring that it has been linked into and rejoin the original wiring back together.
