Check battery voltage should be 12v or better with motor off. start engine read voltage again should be 12.9 or better and then turn all accessories on...voltage should be same or slight y less but best would be at least 13v let it idle and volts should not creep downward..
Volts should never be below 12 and never at 14 except for a brief time after startup. Turn engine off and disable ignition system, then check across battery while craqnking. Volts should not go below 9.5. If so, have batt charged and load tested. If good, replace starter. No valid electrical computer testing can be done without a fully charged battery.

1999 jeep cherokee sport cranks wont crank

Most likely is intermittent in starter solenoid relay

Next most likely is key switch start connection intermittent. a tester will have to be used to find where the power is being lost from the start terminal of ignition switch to starter solenoid pilot connection to the main starter output power from solenoid to starter main contactor.

1996 Jeep Grande Cherokee Loredo - 4.0 engine. The "check gages" light went on this morning on my way to work. The voltage gage was all the way to the left (as if it was not on). It seemed like...

That sounds like an alternator problem but with a jump, it should of started. You might not be getting a good connection. The windows may have been slow cause a bad connection, rather then the alternator. But, the alternator may be weak. Even with a jump, if you have a bad connection in the charging system, it wouldn't start. I would check to make sure the battery is holding a charge. Make sure the terminals are cleaned, as well as the post. Check for any loose wires, on the ground wire as well. Check to the starter and the alternator. Make sure there are no damaged wires or no loose wires in both places. If this all checks out, you need to test for spark and test for fuel. Make sure fuel is getting to the engine. You could spray gas or starter fluid into the carburetor. If it starts and dies, it is a fuel issue. If it does nothing, start checking the ignition system. This is spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor, dist.cap, rotor, cam sensor, ect. There are a lot of things that can cause this to a vehicle. You just need to start checking things one by one. Hope this helps. If you have any questions, let me know. I will help you as much as I can.

Next time you replace your battery you need to find one with more cold cranking amps. It is much harder for the battery to produce the voltage needed in the cold. Batteries produce their peak amperage when new which may explain why you have no problems for a year.

I just bought a 92 jeep cherokee ran beautiful . now it just sits there cant get it to start . battery was dead replaced still wont start . cant tell if its the ignition or the starter.

I'm assuming the starter is not turning the engine...check the small wire on the starter for 12v with key turned to start. If no voltage there, check ignition switch and neutral start switch. (voltage in, voltage out)

Not starting

i had the same problem with my 92 cherokee laredo, could be the crank positioning sensor. if it goes bad you dont get spark from the coil. or it could be the coil, distributor, or even spark plugs.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank

Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
