Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My Jeep wont turn over what so ever, even tho I have replaced the ing switch and starter. There is power to the starter, but still not engaging. I have already checked the fuses and relays and everything seems fine. I looked in the shift console for a nutreul safety switch and found nothing.
Have you tried to jump power directly on the starter? make the BIG power cable touch the small one on the starter with it still in the engine.(power touching the starter solenoid) use a LONG screwdriver to make them touch. you will not get shocked just make sure you only touch those 2. it will spark a bit but just hold it on there. if your starter clicks and does nothing then you have a bad starter. if it works then you have other problems.If it starts to smoke stop and make sure your engine is not frozen by turning the crankshaft with a large ratchet.
make sure voltage flows WHEN cranking also. check voltage at the starter while cranking. make sure it maintains 12 volts. or very close to it. nothing below 10.8 volts. check for corrosion on battey cables if voltage drops below that. that shows you have a curremt problem. also check grounds. or make new ones you know are good.
