Question about 1990 Jeep Cherokee Limited
Bought it 2 days ago. Drove it the 1st day and it seemed fine, except the battery light kept coming on. More like flashing on and off. I wouldn't start, so I had it jumped and it stared. I replaced the battery an hour later. It drove just fine, or so it seemed. I was on my way to the store later the same evening when I could feel the engine not operating right. I parked it at the store. I tried to start it and when it did start, it would kind of idle for a few seconds and when I tried to engage it into 1st gear, it tried to choke. After I was able to move it a few feet in gear, it just died and has not started since. Any suggestions? Thank you.
It sounds kind of like you have bad alternator. The alternator uses the engines power to recharge the battery. When you replaced the battery the car ran off battery power untill it died. If the car will run while hooked up to another car while being jump started then the problem is deffinetely the alternator..
Please give a good rating, it is very importat to us..

The battery light, is a bad Alternator that is not charging your running strictly of the battery so when the battery voltage goes down to 10 volts the jeep will act funny and dye on you if you have a battery charger put it on the new battery to get it charged up .Then you could take it to autozone there they will check your alternator for free to make sure this is the problem:)
