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
