2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not get negative input to starter relay and does not start. How do I diagnose the problem.


Note the diagram? What about your security system? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If you unplug starter relay and use jumper sire between terminal 30 and 87, the starter should crank. If you try this make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. I don't know exactly what testing you have done? I'm just trying to see if starter motor will crank the engine? Even so, if it does crank that doesn't mean it will start and run.
The pcm grounds the starter relay, that is why I asked about security system.

Having trouble with 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited not starting when the key is turned. It clicks but does not fire. It takes several tries to get the engine to start.


Three items to check there. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure, check the starter relay (quick way is to steal another in the power center and switch them). Also check the engine grounds and that the starter solenoid is engaging. If you have power at the small terminal on the starter when the key is turned to start, good bet the starter is bad.

2000 jeep grand cherokee wont start...all i get is a click sound from the starter... wanna make sure it is the starter before i go replacing it...tried wiggling wires


Used a test light at starter, on small wire check for voltage while some one turn key to start.if you do have voltage there starter bad . Replace it. If you need to move truck tap starter with hammar while some one turn key to start.Remember you'll still need to replace starter.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start.


You need a new battery. The lights only take about 10 - 15 amps, the starter takes 200 - 400 amps, Replace the battery and all will be well

98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - will not start - starter solenoid clicks once when engaged but starter will not turn engine - plenty of voltage (14V with jumper cables connected) going to solenoid - with screw...


The starter is bad. Solenoid is good, the starter itself is bad. You can remove it and take it to Schuck's/Chief's/Kragen/NAPA, they will test it for FREE. You can't beat free!!!

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
