Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a 94 cherokee coutry w/inline 6. When I turn the key i get nothing but the hum of the fuel pump and a little clicking under the hood. I have replaced the cap, rotor, plugs, alternator, fuel filter, and battery as well as had the starter tested. If I jump the starter the engine turns but wont start. I have no idea on where to go from here any help would be great..
First place to look is in the wires from the battery to the starter and the battery to the ground... got corrosion? this can really choke off the flow of electricity to the vehicle... check both ends of the starter cable and the ground from battery to frame (or block or trans) any kind of green or white deposits indicate it's time for new ones... this can be tricky because the corrosion can be inside the insulation on the wires... if corrosion is bad enough even a jump won't start the vehicle as not enough voltage will reach the coil... if the wires are good then it's time to check the coil and it's wiring... if you aren't real savvy at testing components with a meter then replace the coil (assuming good wiring) and test for spark by holding coil wire about 1/4inch from the block or any good ground while turning engine... you should see a nice blue spark... hope this helps...;-)
