Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is having problems starting. There is power when I turn the ignition key, but all I hear is a click when I try and turn it over. I bridged the connection between the two studs on the starter which sparked and then I was able to start the vehicle.
Is this just the solenoid or do I have to replace the whole starter unit.
This means it is the solenoid. But usually on those the starter and solenoid are one unit. They can be purchased individually, but it is usually almost as expensive as replacing the whole unit.

I had this problem on my Jeep. The problem is in the ground. Clean or replace your battery terminals, that did it for me. Also check the ground to chassis connection, make sure its clean and tight.

It is possible that the ignition switch has come loose and broke the rod inside. It will not be the starter as you were able to jump it and get the vehicle started. What is the mileage on your Jeep?

Starter is bad and it would be motor that is bad....replace the whole unit...it would be guaranteed for a year!

Unlock all of the Jeep Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.
Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.
Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the car ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.
When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.
Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!
