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.

Major Short Curcuit?????

SUPER easy to fix. you shorted out one of the fuses. refer to the owners manual and replace whichever one belongs to that circuit. i know a main circuit box (for the TJ & YJ) is located behind the glove box. might be in the same spot on the cherokee.

gook luck, doesn't sound too back. one thing i have learned with wiring. CHECK the FUSES first. i have my whole dash and ignition column ripped apart when all the problem was, was a blown fuse and a corroded battery post...

Positive battery cable replacement

Just take your time and make sure your batter isn't in the car. Be careful not to cut into the copper wires. Just try to make it look as close to factory as you can and in the same pattern.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank

Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
