Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited has a new battery but won't start. When I try to jump start it, it just makes a clicking sound but won't start.

The battery is new, the connections are clean and the battery cables are new and are suppose to be decent quality. I'm using my 2001 VW Jetta to jump it. The Jetta is in storage backed into my garage, the Jeep is in the driveway and it's cold outside. I am certain it is not the lights unless something is draining the battery overnight. Still, it will not start when I attempt to jump it, it just makes a clicking sound until it sounds like it's going to die.

Most likely you have a bad connection somewhere. Trace the battery cables and clean/tighten all terminals or try jumping to a different lug. You might also try removing the starter and jumping directly to the starter to verify that it is good.

SOURCE: 1988 Ford E350 with 2 batteries won't start, just clicks

It has to have 2 batteries because it is a diesel engine. Diesels use compression to fire the combustion mixture instead of a spark plug as a gasoline engine does. It has glow plugs that heat the mixture up before starting to help promote this and it has probably twice the compression ratio,therefore it takes alot of amps to start it and that is why you have 2 batteries. No it still only has one solenoid for the starter but it has to use a gear reduction starter instead of a conventional one.

SOURCE: 1995 ford f150 makes single loud click when trying to start

Does it make the loud click just once, or will it continue to click when you turn the key?
If it is just once, then there is still a bad connection someplace for the main power. If it continues to click every time you turn the key to "start", then it is probably the starter solenoid itself that is bad. There are two big terminals (bolts) on the solenoid, and if you connect a 12V test light or meter across them, you should see power there. If the light doesn't go out (or very dim) when you turn the ign. to 'start', then the solenoid is bad. If the light goes out and the starter doesn't turn, then there is something wrong with the starter. I suspect the solenoid also because it works better with a strong charge on the battery.

SOURCE: car wont start, acts like

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

SOURCE: Mondeo wont start, makes a click sound when ignition is turned on

hi sounds like your starter motor has packed in with all the trying.. just quickly put your car in 5th gear and give it a rock this might release it if not then you gota replace it and as a must get your battery charged up so it has the correct cranking amps to turn the starter

2001 vw jetta no power to relay block


To the relay block under the hood? Yry cleaning connections. If you see white stuff built up on the metal that is corrosion, you gotta get that off. I imagine you are using a multimeter; trace the cables back to the battery (Is the battery dead?) and test everywhere you can along the way.

The air plate is not shutting off the air to the intake manifold or you are getting oil into the intake. Check the flap on the end of the intake where the black boot connects to it. You could have a vacuum leak or electronic issue not sur with out looking at it.

1997 vw jetta will not start after battery disconnect


Double check your connections to make sure you have the cables connected correctly. Check the owners manual to see if there is an initialization process you have to follow after connecting the battery. In most VW the connection process recommends connecting the positive then the negative terminal and if that sequence isn't followed it doesn't like to start. It makes no sense but in some cases that is the only way it will work.

Battery is about 3 years old, bought the car used last year.


You need to check the voltage in the battery. Depending on the quality of the battery, 3 years in some cases means its time for a new one. Have it checked first before you replace it. Auto zone or any good service place can check the battery to determine how good it is.

Battery drain


My wife's 2001 Jetta TDI had the same problem. First we changed the battery. (It was just about due anyway) No change. We then traced the power drain to the in-trunk mounted CD changer. This was an aftermarket CD changer but we went to the same source that the VW dealership uses. Of course one blames the other. The CD changer was even replaced with no change. If we are not using the car for long trips we unplug the CD changer and no more dead battery! Neither the VW dealer nor the AV installer could give us a good working solution to this problem.
