If it's an auto transmission, there will be a gear position switch that will enable the starter relay. If this switch is not aligned with 'N' or "P" gear position, it will not enable the relay and no power will be connected to the starter. When you turn the key to start, have someone hold.or listen to the starter relay operating. If nothing happens, check/replace relay and try again. If it still fails, try shifting to N and try again. Have a look your instrument panel make sure that the immobilizer is not active when your switch on the ignition.

Why my car wont start?


Sounds like the starter has stopped working. Try this emergency fix. Tapp on the starter with a small hammer and see if it will start working. This is a temporary fix and means that the starter should be replaced

Why 97 jeep grand cherokee wont start no click ?


Bad ignition switch,
Bad neutral safety switch
Bad starter relay.
Bad starter.

If you understand how relays work, you can remove the relay in the car and jump the switch pins together. If the starter motor turns the engine, you problem is the first 3. If not, its the starter itself.

My 1995 jeep grand cherokee Laredo won't start, or


You might not believe this, but check your battery. Some of these vehicles have cut-outs when the battery level goes below a preset amount.
I work on Ford brands and on them, a low battery level will even disconnect the Alternator circuit and mess with the starter. Some even act up when the battery slightly dips below 12 volts.

Your antitheft can make your starter cut out. And If you think about it, all of the measurements to make the engine run are based on feedback of voltage and amperage. This is how the engine management system adjusts. If your prime source of power is low, then all of the following electrical readings will be low. Some may be too low to work.

Your fuelpump will hold pressure in a closed system for hours. The fuel pressure regulator will command the fuelpump to stop working if the fuel pressure is at maximum. Without responses from the other components and after satisfactory pressure, the fuelpump will turn off.

We have a 2002 Grand Cherokee that we have just bought. Dealer installed a brand new battery because of sluggish starts. In a week the battery is acting weak again, sometimes it starts fine, other times...


I was having the same issue with my 95 GMC. I replaced the battery and alternator. It would start fine at times, at other times it would be sluggish. I finally took the starter off and had it checked. Turns out the starter was bad. When it would get hot, it would act as though the battery was dead. Replaced the starter and it has not acted up again. Have the starter checked. Replace if bad.
