The starter has a weak solenoid if the battery is good, change out starter before it leaves you stranded.

When attempting to start, all gear indicator light lit and van wont start or try to turn over

It almost sounds like the transmission cable has come off. Look next to the transmission to see if the cable is still attached. If it is still attached, then shift into N for Neutral and try to start the vehicle.

remove the distributor cap and ask somebody to start it for you to see whether the rotor in the distributor rotates.If so check whether you do have power coming out of the distributor to the spark plugs. if no spark comes out then check from the distributor the inner side where the carbon is if is not missing or broken.

Check the fuel line for clog.
Check the fuel pump
Check the fuel tank to see if there is water or dirt inside.

1998 jeep Cherokee Sport wont start

Sounds like your battery is way down. have it checked/charged and load tested. then have the charging system tested after you get it started.

Car wont start, no clicks no sound

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck

Check the solenoid on the starter motor - it makes a clicking sound both when the battery's low and when the solenoid's bad.
