Won't start, battery good, starter good, swapped relays and still won't start

I have a 2007 jeep gc 3.7L v6. Replaced the battery a few months ago for a bad cell. Went out again and jeep wouldn't start. Tried both keys in case one was dead, swapped relays to make sure they were working and took the starter out, which was a pain, and had it tested. Guy said it was fine, and check wiring. Wires were on there tight. I've read about earth ground issues and don't really know what else to check. Any ideas?

Any issues with the ignition switch itself? They are mostly made of plastic pieces. With the exception of the actual cylinder. Also depending on how long you had the battery issue,it may have damaged the alternator. They tend to go hand in hand,unless caught early enough. The alternator gets overworked due to the weak battery.

SOURCE: car will not start. Brand

Is the ignition switch good? If the starter/solenoid; starter relay, battery and cables are all good that is about the only thing left.

Do you hear a click when you turn the switch?

SOURCE: My 2004 Honda CR-V occasionally

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Looks like that you have a failing IACV (idle air control valve). If the IACV is faulty, the vehicle tends not to start or may stall during operation. I suggest that you have the vehicle scanned to know exactly what the fault is. Though I suspect that it's the IACV.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: power drain new battery,alternater

if the battery is being drained there is something causing it to happen, check that all the lights are off glove box, trunk, you may have to get someone to get in the trunk & close it to see if the light goes out, when it is dark lift the hood & move the wiring everywhere you can to see if there are any sparks that might indicate a bare wire touching something.....hope this helps......cheers.

2007 jeep gc won't start. Lights, battery all Dash lights had been acting strangely before this happened. Turned the car off, Swapped AC relay with starter relay and nothing.


i guess you mean starter is dead, and all lights dead.
pointing to....
the battery is dead, did you jumper cable start it?
if that works the battery is bad, dead or only dischanged.
if that dont work make sure the battery cable lugs are cleaned.
no rust on cable ends( that green junk there that all cars get)
if the head lamps die (they work key off so...)
then the battery is dead, or rusty lugs.
if battery is dead, charge it. using a charger.

Starter making whirring noise.


When you say it won't start you mean it won't crank, right ?

If you have a duralast starter from auto zone, that may be the problem.
Aftermarket brand starters and alternators can be lemons sometimes.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter with the key in the on and start positions. Also check the ground connections.
Its possible the starter is not getting full battery voltage for some reason.

Try checking the battery and battery leads. Sounds as though you have a bad battery. Also check your fuses under the hood and dash.
