Let's assume your battery, starter and ignition is all good.

Try the Neutral safety switch. If the Jeep doesn't start in Park, then shift it into Neutral, then try to start it.

If it still doesn't start, then hold the key in the START position, and wiggle the shifter front and back while in the Neutral position.

Sometimes you can find a sweet spot where the safety switch is misaligned and your Jeep may start right up!

If you get it cranked, you can either keep doing the exact same thing everytime you start it, or you can get a new switch and have it installed/adjusted.

Dead battery, bad ground, poor battery connections, corroded connections( battery and starter.

All of these are simple to check and are major contributers.

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that I can't get it to start. It isn't the starter or any of it's component. When I insert the key it siTmply won't turn. I suspect this has something to do with...


COMPONENTS INVOLVED TI THE STARTER CIRCUIT ARE : IGNITION SWITCH, STARTER RELAY IN THE POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX, NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH, [ ON LEFT SIDE OF THE TRANSMISSION ] & MOST LIKELY, A SOLENOID ON THE STARTER & THE STARTER.
SOMETHING YOU CAN TRY. PUT THE TRANSMISSION IN PARK HOLD THE IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME, HAVE SOMEONE TAP ON THE STARTER WITH A MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF THE STARTER TURNS OR TRIES TO TURN IT EITHER LOW VOLTAGE DUE TO BAD OR DIRTY CONNECTIONS, OR A BAD BATTERY OR A BAD STARTER. ALSO, IF THE JEEP HAS AN AFTER MARKET ALARM, THERE IS A RELAY BEHIND THE DASH THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. ONE WIRE ,YELLOW WITH A DARK BLUE STRIPE, CONNECTED TO A SMALL BLACK RELAY THAT IS INTERRUPTING THE STARTER CIRCUIT. IF IT IS THERE, YOU WILL NEED TO RECONNECT THE YELLOW/DARK BLUE WIRE BACK TOGETHER. YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK THIS FIRST. GOOD LUCK.

Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.

This means it is the solenoid. But usually on those the starter and solenoid are one unit. They can be purchased individually, but it is usually almost as expensive as replacing the whole unit.

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...


First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)

1991 jeep cherokee laredo won't start


you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.
