Question about Cars & Trucks
Check to see of your headlight will come on full bright. Then blow the horn. This test will check the battery which is probably dead. Try jumping it off and take it to a battery store. BE CAREFUL and DO NOT reverse the connections.

2nd click could be fuel pump engaging...what about the fuses under the hood... is there gas getting to the engine?? is there a safety shut off switch that needs resetting? have you checked the ground wire?

ase mechanic here, sounds like the starter is on its way out, will have to replace since you cleaned all the connections, but in the mean time try hitting the solenoid portion with some object and see if the engine starts. if so the starter needs replacing.

A solenoid needs so much power to kick in. I think your battery is getting old and not at full capacity. Hove it check and replace if needed.

I also have a 98 Jeep Cherokee with the same problem. I know I probably need to replace the starter eventually but as of now I turn it to accessory only, pop it in neutral, then start it and it works every time when it wouldn't even try to turn over with it in park. Don't know why it works, but it does. Give it a try.
