Check your starter, most auto parts stores will check them for free. all so make sure your gear selector is in park. if you have a good battery and starter your car should turn over.

I GET THE CODE P 1594 ON A 1999 GRAND CHEROKEE


The P1594 means that the battery voltage sense input is above the target. This is most probably a problem with the alternator. I would take it to a shop where they can test the alternator for you.

We had the same problem and got 2 different alternators ! Gee, found out it was not the alternator AT ALL, but the wire from the alternator TO THE BATTERY was shorting out. Check that on yours, and good luck!
