Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

04 jeep grand cherokee, acts like dead battery, starts after

Out of the blue, my jeep will not start, sounds like dead battery (but battery recently replaced). When jumped, is hesistant to start and will not continue to run if foot is taken off gas.

Disconnected & reconnect battery cables (no, they were not loose) and vehicles starts like nothing ever happened???

Vehicle often seems to not fire "clean" on ignition, but always starts.

    If it's the ignition, it doesn't sound like any ignition problems I've heard before. Started perfectly all day, today. What about something with the computer, that's involved with starting???

    If it's the starter, will it start failing to start more often? Or just finally quit one day??? Can I wait to replace the starter??

    Left work, it was dead so someone jumped me off. Got it to crank but wouldn't stay started unless I kept my foot on the gas and the RPMs high.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee wouldnt start,acted like a dead battery. (had battery and alternator tested both good) when I jumped it it started right up but as soon as I took my foot off the gas it died..no...


Have throttle body cleaned and "minimum air rate" adjusted. Computer looses learned memory when battery is disconnected and has to start over again.

04 jeep grand cherokee won't start just drags,


Could be a failing starter or problems with the cables.
A dead cell in the battery will do it too.

We have a 2002 Grand Cherokee that we have just bought. Dealer installed a brand new battery because of sluggish starts. In a week the battery is acting weak again, sometimes it starts fine, other times...


I was having the same issue with my 95 GMC. I replaced the battery and alternator. It would start fine at times, at other times it would be sluggish. I finally took the starter off and had it checked. Turns out the starter was bad. When it would get hot, it would act as though the battery was dead. Replaced the starter and it has not acted up again. Have the starter checked. Replace if bad.
