Something is completing the circuit that the starter solenoid connects when you are in "start" position, but you are not turning the key. Therefore juice is getting to the small wire on the soleniod, causing it to kick the starter gear and engage the starter.
Check ignition switch (disengage your airbag deploy circuits first if you remove it). You should only have juice going to the start circuit when the key is turned against the spring. Anything else is a failure of your switch.
The other possibility is that a short is causing juice to go to your solenoid switch - small terminal from relay- if theres a relay it could be on the blink- loose contacts can short, or you have a crossed wire short that is putting juice into your relay or solenoid circuit causing it to engage. Or the solenoid itself may have a loose piece inside that makes contact internally from the pos batt connection to the small wire on the solenoid.
You need to get it fixed as every time it engages while it is running you are grinding gears on your flywheel and starter. The ignition switch, solenoid, and relays will all be cheaper and easier fix than replacing those.

The gauge could be wrong,it could be defective,have the alternator checked,at the battery,it should read from 13.65 volts to 14.25 volts with the head lights on,and the ac blower on high,with the engine running.If the alternator is new,check for 12 volts at the back of the alternator with engine off,if there is not 12 volts on the large wire,on the alternator,then the circuit is broken somewhere.Just install a new wire,of equal or larger size.Leave the original wire on the alternator,and just add a new wire,larger would be better if possible,and run it from the alternator,to the positive side of the battery,it will fix the problem.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 6cyl,
Check out the solenoid on the starter.
Either the starter solenoid is sticking or the ignition switch is not function as required and is not disconnecting the solenoid when the key is released...When the engine is not running and you turn the key to start, 12 volts from the ignition switch passes through the neutral safety switch then to the starter solenoid...When you shift into gear, the neutral safety switch disconnects the power to the starter solenoid, but if the ignition switch is functioning properly, that circuit should already be dead once you release the key.The purpose of the neutral safety switch is so that the car cannot be strarted while it is in gear.S its also possible that neutral safety switch is getting short.Otherwise jeep should not start in any gear selected.Also get the flywheel checked.If any of the teeth on flywheel is cracked or broken, the starter solenoid will slip and not stay engaged.--------
Also this is possible:----
The purpose of the spring in the solenoid is to keep starter drive away from flywheel while engine is running. Make sure you are still getting power to the starter motor when its cranking, either a bad starter drive(retracts while still cranking) or the ignition switch is stopping power to the starter solenoid. the best way is to check for power at the smaller wire at the starter and make sure it stays hot the whole time your cranking.--------
Also check the starter gear, it should not spin in any direction manually.If its spinning, then its the starter problem.-----------
Check out.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
