Test the alternator charging capability by connecting a volt meter to the battery terminals and starting the engine. The voltage should be at least 13 VDC.
If it's less it will not charge the battery enough.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Jeep wont start.

Try squirting a little carb cleaner into intake while cranking. if engine lights and stalls then you know there is spark, then look to the fuel system...you said that fuses look ok...check them with volt meter to verify. check fuel pump relay...then check pump...voltage with meter and audible noise. If there is running voltage at the pump and no noise pump, isn't working.

If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.

Seems to be having problems with the alternator. Alternator itself can be bad, but also the voltage regulator, which sits inside the PCM (powertrain control module).
Don´t continue using with battery voltage around the 10V, because it will ruin your battery as well. Completely charge the battery with an external battery charger and let the alternator be checked out first.

The car that broke down is a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee and what happened last night is that we were on our way across the state to my other aunts house for the night and then to my grandpa's in the morning...


I didn't learn a whole lot from your narration but it seems that there is a high probability that something has gone wrong with the charging system. Unless you have a good battery charger and can charge the battery and see if it starts (if it does, it's not fixed but likely you can get it to a good local shop for diagnosis) You cannot charge a battery by jumping it with another vehicle. It won't work and can damage the other vehicle. There is nothing you can do there without the proper meters etc.
Otherwise, your best bet is to have it towed to whoever generally works on it and have them take a look at it for you.
Good luck!!!
