Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

New battery vs. new electrical system?

What are the symptoms of dead battery, and are they different from an electrical problem?

My car wont start, and is showing no signs of life (no horn, interior lights, gauges are working) When trying to start it, it made a sputter on the first turn of the key, then no sound, with my alarm lights flashing and no alarm horn... now, no sign of life. Jumping it did nothing..

Please help me!

Replaced starter in 99 Saturn. Battery went dead, got new one ...same thing. REPLACED ALT. SAME THING. Had alt tested, it was good. Wont hold a charge, wont start. Could starter wires be crossed?


Instead of guessing (could wires be crossed ) Testing the electrical circuits is the way to find the problem . Battery goes dead when ? over night ,while driving the vehicle ? If it goes dead overnight you have a parasitic drain on the electrical system . Look at a wiring diagram an check the wires for correct hook up . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model an engine size . under system click engine then under subsystem click starting . Click the search button ,then the blue link . Really don't think you could cross the wire's ,only two size wires (connectors ) . only hooks up one way.

05 gmc envoy denali car was running replaced old batt now car wont start


Hey Stephen,,does the car turn over or is it completely dead?

If the engine, lights, horn don't work it your new battery.
Test or have tested, your new batteries charge and its performance
under load.

If the battery is okay and all the connections are tight and secure
and still no start..provide some more info on the no start vs no crank
question. Does the engine turn over?

Your owners manual might also provide some notes on changing the battery.

What are dead battery symptoms


The symptoms of a flat battery the engine wont start you may hear a repeated nose from starter motor or if the battery is completely flat nothing will happen or if there is some voltage you may see flashing dash lights and clicking relays behind the dash. The easiest way is obtain a volt meter and also get the battery tested.

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls


alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.
