Possibly a bad solenoid. There will be one attached to the starter and might be one against your firewall.

Your problem can come from several sources, the solenoid can have a failed coil and this is easy to check for once a control terminal (thinner wire) is disconnected by measuring resistance with a multimeter. This should be in the low Ohms range and is a few Ohms, in any case under 20. Disconnect the negative side of the battery (always this one first) before attempting to locate the problem, The heavy terminals of the solenoid can be corroded and should be cleaned with a wire brush. Internally, the solenoid contacts which are exposed to 100+ amperes when starting, can arc away with time and either exhibit intermittent on no contact at all. If the coil is energized, the power terminals of the solenoid should measure the same as the multimeter leads when just shorted to each other. Any resistance measurable with a standard meter should be close to zero. If the solenoid seems OK, then the battery clamps and cables should be removed and cleaned at every junction. This means at the battery, the connection to the solenoid, the connection to the starter. If any of these is less than perfect, they can drop all of the 12 volts robbing the starter of energy. After all these have been done, reconnect the battery, positive clamp first, then finally the negative terminal.

I had the same problem and I found out that the battery was bad. since everything runs off the computer there wasnt enough juice to run both the car and the computer the jeep ran good after putting a new battery in it. so try this first before you spend a lot of money on a shop fix because they wont think about the battery being bad. they will want to replace everything but. hope this helps

Are you getting spark from coil wire when cranking? If so, check the cap & rotor. If not, the most common failure is the crank sensor. If you have a 4,0, you can find it on the drivers side of the bellhousing, in line with the flywheel, just where it's annoying to work on. There is a test you can make, but I don't have the specific test values or the correct terminals to check. (you can find that info in any half decent manual.
Good luck

SOURCE: 1995 jeep grand cherokee wont start

it most definately is the crank shaft sensor. same exact prob i had. it costs about 60 bucks and 3 minutes to replace yourself. one bolt holds it into the transmission bell housing and one connector wire. very simple fix. call off the wrecker. just have plenty of ratchet extensions available i had to go in from behind the transfer case to reach the bolt but it was still pretty simple to install.

SOURCE: 99 grand cherokee laredo wont start but turns over

my jeep did the same thing. when you open the hood, on the right hand side of the engine, it was two small rubber hoses, the back hose came off, i think it was the air intake. it was only easy to fix, just push it back on, it should be a small clamp on it.

Why won't my jeep start after replacing the battery & the spark plugs?


Need four basics to start the engine; timing, spark, fuel and air.

Is the engine cranking? If so, have someone to spray 'starter fluid' into the immediate air induction port. If it doesn't fire and run for a few seconds, check the distributor source. If it does fire and run for a second or two, you may have a fuel pump down.

1995 Grand cherokee 5.2 engine, when cold takes forever to start up. once hot will start up on first try. i changed the spark plugs but same result. idles fine runs good. Spark plugs were dry when...


Living in New England we have some cold days. What I find helps, but not necessary your problem, is to turn the key to the "on" position for 5 seconds or so and then turn the key to actually start the engine. Its starts right up without major pull on starter or battery.

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.

Turns over but won't start


check to make sure your spark plugs are working. If you unscrew the plug and hold the plug to the engine exhaust manifolds and turn the car over u should see a spark. if you dont then the plugs are bad

Hey, I just had the same rpm surging problem... really bad all of a sudden over the last couple days. The check engine light came on today and it's idle changed from big time shaking to barely a pulse. Drove okay on the highway on our way to my favorite auto repair. A diagnostic showed that the third spark was dead and upon the advice of a senior mechanic  - spark plugs were changed along with the coil. I dunno if that was smart on my part I could have tried just the plugs first. But I figured I have never changed any of these before and it is getting older. So with a new coil, spark plugs and minus $375 from my world - ... but it's running pretty well now.
