    I have the exact same problem. I have changed the starter with one that I purchased at a junk yard and it worked fine for a couple of days then it happened again. In the mean time , I took my old starter to Auto Zone and Advance Auto and it checke out fine. I have cleaned my battery terminals and both starters seem to like being hit with a hammer or steel pipe to kick in.

    What happens when you turn the key, any sounds, is the engine turning over at all or are you just getting a click?


    Is the Jeep standard or automatic transmission?

Could be a bad connection between the battery and starter. Starter solenoid, or neutral safety switch if it is standard transmission.
Check for power at the solenoid.

99 jeep cherokee wont start,new battery, lights flash,when you turn ignition switch on nothing happens but lights flash on and off.


I know this is not a caravan but it is a chrysler. Recently on a caravan i ran into the same thing and it was the computer that was stopping the engine from cranking and running. Check with the nearest dealer because some of these computers had warranties extended because of problems. Are you sure the starter is ok. You can pull the starter relay under the hood and jump power from the battery to the relay point of connection after you remove the relay. This will cause the starter to turn over the engine. It still won't run if the computer is the problem but you will know the starter is ok which points more to the computer being bad. If this helps please reply and good luck

I have a 1999 jeep gc laredo and it wont start replaced the starter and battery but it just click. i also checked all fuses and relays but nothing worked it just clicks


Take a pair of jumper cables,and use the ground side of the jumper cables,and clamp on the negative battery post,and the other end of the negative ground of the jumper cables,to the engine,anywhere that is a good ground,then try and start it,if it starts,then the ground cable on the jeep,is bad,replace it,you might check the connections on the battery post,clean the grey,or black color residue off the battery post,and inside the cable ends to where they shine.This residue acts as a insulator,and will not allow contact.The new battery can have this residue on it,even if it is new.

Engine will not turnover


If there is no power coming IN to the starter relay - the ignition module has failed.
Replace the Ignition.

My hyundai accent wont start i need a starter relay i think i try to start it but no noise comes out exect a hum from the relay idk what to do but i have to get it fixed


dear friend:the starter relay will only click when you turn the key to the starting position.if the starter relay does not click check for power to and from the relay.also check if you got enough battery power,if all of this is ok then the starter is faulty.

Wont start, new battery, relay good, starter good.


Check the Starter Solenoid mounted near the battery.Check it out in the dark...have someone try to start it and see if it sparks at the solenoid.connections may be loose.Also check/wiggle wiring harness to starter.

1999 XJ Cherokee will not start.


How old is your battery?
Try changing it or charge your battery. At Wal-Mart a new battery is around $50-$60 for a jeep. just look and see how many cca's you need. I think my jeep is 525cca's.
