    I know this is going to sound like a silly question but, do you know where the starter is?  If so this will be very easy for you to replace.

Disconnect the battery, negative side first.
remove both positive wires from the starter.
remove the bolts from the starter.
install new starter.
make sure positive starter wires are free of corrosion and rust, use sand paper or a file.
tighten positive wires just snug, then another 1/4 turn, ** not too tight or you will snap the stud off the starter solenoid**.
coat wire ends and starter studs with die-electric grease, battery protector, spray paint , or something non metalic.
connect vehice battery, negative side last.

SOURCE: need to replace fan relay can't find it

Behind your battery, there's a black plastic cover that once removed, you'll be able to see all the relays and fuses. Yes, it's known as your "Power Distribution Center", and your cooling fan "fuse" (which is quite a bit larger than your normal fuses), is fuse number 13 which is a 20 amp yellow fuse. Underneath the cover you removed there's a diagram of all the relays and fuses...just FYI.

Good Luck,

~Stillin~

The 1996 jeep cherokee sport has been running fine. The last couple of days if I start it and drive for a bit turn it off and then come back out to start it...it wont start....I leave it for a bit and then...


This is a common symptom called heat soak. The heat from the exhaust system is so overwhelming on the internals of the starter, that it creates infinite electrical resistance inside the starter solenoid, basically killing it until it cools down.

You have two options. You can replace the starter, or you can wrap your starter with "Header Wrap" to help prevent this problem.
