Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Installed a new battery. Turned the key to start and and the starter did not engage. Did not here any clicking and there didn't seem to be a drain on the battery such as dimming lights, etc. Used a screwdriver to jump terminals on the solenoid and this starts it everytime. Go back and try starting with key and I have success on and off two or three times. Come back later and the same problem, turn the key and nothing. I changed the starter relay and this did not remedy. Planning to check the wiring connections next.
I had the same problem change battery terminals and cables that lead to engine and starter seemed to fix my problem give it a try.
