    Thanks THUNDERGOD.See this has happened before i went out to start it up one morning and it would'nt. so i replaced the battery and it still would'nt so then i replaced the starter,then it worked again. i don't know if it was the problem but it worked after that. so when this happened to me now i took the starter back off,and i just went out and put it back on again and checked all the wires like you suggested and it started right up. i don't know if maybe a wire was loose or not.but do i still need to worry about this happening again or checking for other problems? i also got some advice on checking the fuel pump relay or checking or replacing a neutral switch on the transmission!! is any of this necessary since it started up now ?

Normally temp increases a bit right after shut-down Unless overheating I would not be concerned about temp yet. If you can turn the engine by hand (only try with key off) and starter is good, check battery connections at both ends of cables (at starter, block and battery.) Check that battery has 12v. Check small wire on starter (solenoid trigger wire) it should have 12v with key turned to start position. That's enough to do for now,,,if you haven't resolved this, post again.

1999 Cherokee starts but won't keep running without giving it throttle.


Assuming everything is working correctly, you may have to drive it up to 50 miles for the computer to relearn the basic perimeters.
I think you can also turn the key on, open the throttle to wide open, then close it 2 or 3 times to reset the memory in the computer.
Not sure about Jeeps.

1997 jeep grand cherokee won't start after alarm went off


I just had the same prblem. Reconnect your alarm first of all. You need to use your key bob "remote" to deactivate the alarm before starting. It is a feature "good one" i might add that should someone try to steal it the jeep will not start until u deactivate it w theke bob.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee that won't start. Can't read codes - claims we need to check connections. Cranks fine. Notice that fuel gauge and battery voltage does not register anythin


Hi Roger, Sounds to me as if you may have a problem with the anti theft unit in your vehicle. A diagnostic scan would help greatly to pin point the problem. Regards John

My 89 jeep cherokee won't. Start it will turn over


what motor? is the coil producing spark?? If so, check the fuel pressure, if the fuel pressure is low drop the tank, repace the pump and also replace the filter (located on the frame forward of the tank). If the coil is not producing spark, check for shorts or opens in the circuits as well as the IGN fuses. If there is NO fuel pressure at all check the fuel pump fuses and make sure the fuel pump is plugged in and there are no opens in the circuit

89 jeep cherokee 4.0 it bogs down and will accelerate in drive


Make sure that the timing is correct and that the spark from the coil is healthy. Problem can also be with the overdrive in the converter. If it's stuck on it can do that too.
