If the starter is new, and you hear it spinning, then the flywheel is bad and needs to be replaced

Battery good, alternator, starter all good. Fuses good. When turning the key to start there is no power at all. no


Just concentrate for the moment on the battery, starter, and ignition switch. Your 92 jeep is a complicated marvel, but all you need to do is get the starter turning the engine for all those automatic things to happen and turn it back into a mobile jeep.
As long as you have battery power at the switch, and even bigger battery power at the starter, and you connect the three of them together...instant bingo, the engine starts, or should if everything is working right. If I understand you right, you do have power to the switch, just nothing in start, or you 'd have noted that. Check engine light on, and warning lights and gauges work, yes? Then the switch is working that much, anyway. The switch start position should transmit power to the starter on the small wire that is on the starter. You can check for power there when the key is held in crank (start). Easy to check with a meter or a testlight. You stated battery and starter are good, so if the cable connecting them is good and tight., your problem may be in the start circuit from the switch to the starter (starter solenoid, to be exact). So it's ign. switch to starter relay to starter (solenoid).. Check for power on that path. Quick check at starter relay: pull the relay out (in the power distribution box) it connects to 4 terminals.. One terminal should be hot all the time. check with testlight. If nothing there, check the 40 amp fuse or battery connection or wiring. If one is hot, then have someone hold the key in crank. Now 2 terminals should have power. If not then ignition switch or the neutral safety switch or the wiring between them needs diagnosing. If two terminals do have power, try another relay. maybe yours went out. If a good relay doesn't help, then starter solenoid or starter or your wiring needs further troubleshooting. Hope you find it, over...

2002 jeep cherokee laredo won't start new battery


The Jeep DTC P1491 code is actually radiator fan control relay circuit.
Soft reset if the battery disconnect would have erased the code; the first thing I would replace for that code (fan relay).
Additionally, its possible thta your THEFT system is activated, check owners manual to disarm.
Hope this helps.

Jeep commander clicks once and won't start. It is


The starting issue is the same I had on my 2005 Grand Cherokee. The wire coming from the ignition (key area) to the Starter the connection is bad. The shop replaced the lead and it is perfectly fine... it cost $70. I dont know the techincal terms.. but it was easy to fix- the problem is water and junk gets splashed up by the front tire and corroded the wire into the sarter.... that's all it was.
Good luck.

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...


First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)

89 jeep cherokee pioner won't start !!!


Normally temp increases a bit right after shut-down Unless overheating I would not be concerned about temp yet. If you can turn the engine by hand (only try with key off) and starter is good, check battery connections at both ends of cables (at starter, block and battery.) Check that battery has 12v. Check small wire on starter (solenoid trigger wire) it should have 12v with key turned to start position. That's enough to do for now,,,if you haven't resolved this, post again.

Jeep wount start


When you turn the key on all the lights come on normally? and when you try to start you lose the lights and hear a click? If so the battery cables are loose, or broken. If thats not the case it could be a relay or stuck starter or switch. You can try a screwdriver at the starter hit the little wire and the big wire it will spark and should turn the engine over "MAKE SURE IT IS IN PARK WITH THE BRAKE SET" do this last, if you do all that and it turns over you can say the starter and cables are good. Next replace relay and try, still nothing get a new switch. Hope this helps.
