Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I think starter fixed the problem ???

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 ?

You posted your reply in the wrong place so I'm a bit unsure of which problem you were. Generally though if removing and replacing same starter worked I would make sure ground lead is clean and secure...from experience, the ground system is the most forgotten part of electrical system but just as important as hot side) I always create additional grounding on everything I own. Since it's not clear that moving the starter had anything to do with actual fix, try doing a "wiggle test" on nearby wiring to make sure that it continues to start.

Car not starting


Verify 12V at the starter (+) lead.

If there is NOT 12VDC - first check the cables - they may be frayed or damaged or improperly connected at battery or starter.

If there is 12V, and no click when trying to start - the solenoid is faulty. You can JUST replace the solenoid, but its worth your time and effort to replace the unit as a whole. (you have to remove the starter anyway).

If there is 12V, and a click when trying to start - the starter is faulty - Replace starter.

If there is 12V, and click and whine (like a motor spinning) when trying to start - starter gear has been stripped or broken off. - Replace starter.

If no 12V the starter relay is bad.

If relay is good - your problem lies in the ignition module, or key tumbler.

2003 Toyota Sequoia won't start.


Have you gotten this problem fixed yet? If not what is the condition of the battery cables( corrosion free)? Also how old is the battery? One dead cell could possibly cause this problem.
