Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. When

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. When your turn the key, engine tries but does not turn over / fire. Starter was replaces less than a year ago. Battery replaced 2 years ago and has a full tank of gas.

Tried jumping it off, unsuccessful.
It is my daughters jeep and for over a year has had difficulty starting the engine 1 out of 3 times when engine is cold. Last night was the first time in a week that she would have driven it, if it had started.

In the last 3 months, we have taken it to 2 different garages hoping someone would find the problem. Both said nothing was wrong with it.

Check your fuel pump ,fuel lines,.One of the most overlooked starting causes is fuel delivery. Find the fuel rail to the injectors. Assuming you don't have a fuel pressure gauge, remove the dust cap on the fitting on the fuel rail and press the center pin in the valve to see if there's a good amount of pressure for a very brief second. There will be no continuous pressure unless the engine is running or is being cranked over. Have somebody crank it for you for a second to see if high pressure is present.

If not, first look at the fuel cutoff switch usually located in the inside stowage compartment of the vehicle. See if the reset button clicks when you press it. Next check the fuel pump fuse and relay, and finally the pump itself could be bad.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee drive it a while turn the engine off wont start back up


Your starter solenoid armature is sticking. It is mounted atop the starter and the heat from the exhaust manifold sometimes causes this problem on older systems. You can try a temporary fix by placing some type of heat shield over the solenoid using something that is fire proof but replacing the solenoid will eventually be necessary.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks well but will not start. I hear nothing when I first turn key on.


You hear nothing? It cranks well? I'm not sure if I understand what you are "listening" for. Do you hear the starter cranking the engine? If so, why are you expecting clicks?

I have a grand cherokee 1993 it wont im not getting fire


Might be your crank sensor, your coil, your distributor or even your ecu. All of those being bad will prevent the jeep from firing. If you do not have a check engine light lighting up on the dash when you turn the key to on, before trying to crank the engine, then it's your ecu which is bad and needs repair.

Starter spins but dose not turn over


If you can hear it spin(starter), but not actually hear the motor turning over or trying to crank/start..... Sounds like starter not engaging-Replace starter. Small possibility flywheel is damaged, but less likely.

Having trouble with 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited not starting when the key is turned. It clicks but does not fire. It takes several tries to get the engine to start.


Three items to check there. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure, check the starter relay (quick way is to steal another in the power center and switch them). Also check the engine grounds and that the starter solenoid is engaging. If you have power at the small terminal on the starter when the key is turned to start, good bet the starter is bad.

Jeep grand cheeroke will not start need help


TWO POSSIBLE ISSUES. A MOTOR NEEDS TWO THINGS TO RUN. FUEL AND FIRE. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR FUEL PUMP IS WORKING BY LOCATING THE FUEL RAIL AND USING THE SHRADER VALVE, CHECK THE PRESSURE. THEN CHECK YOUR INJECTORS. IF THOSE ARE FINE THEN CHECK YOUR FUEL FILTER. IF YOUR FUEL SYSTEM IS FINE. THEN THERE IS THE FIRE PROBLEM. CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING A GOOD SPARK FROM YOUR SPARK PLUGS.
THE OTHER ISSUE MAY BE YOUR STARTER. IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING ANY RESPONSE FROM YOUR ENGINE WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, THEN YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW STARTER.

Jeep wont start


The crank position sensor is on the bell housing of the transmission, very hard to see, on passenger side, below the valve cover, depending if it is an early 2000 or a later 2000 model.

1993 jeep grand cherokee wont start


check all fuses in power distribution center near battery and make sure all wires you removed from starter went back on starter and not hanging somewhere. There is a possibility that before you changed the starter there was something wrong that was causing the starter not to operate. Also check that power is going to and out of the ignition switch and starter relay (relay also powers up the ignition system which is why you have no fire)
