It is the battery. it has enough energy to turn the lights and radio on but not enough current flow to turn the starter motor. it could be caused by a bad battery, loose or corroded connections on the battery terminals or the starter or an undercharging alternator.

the problem could be that your alternator belt is loose or that the alternator is undercharging and that the battery is gradually running down as it is not being fully recharged by the charging system. Or, it could simply be that the 'new' battery is failing (that does happen)

the problem though is definetly with the battery. take the car to the place that put the battery in and have them check it out. I'm sure you'll find that to be your problem

also, to get your car there, jump start it. when the car starts with a jump you' will have confirmed the problem is with the battery being dead. Again, you'll have to have the charging system checked to see if that's why the battery is running down

hope that helps

Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

Cranks, but won't start


Could be the crank sensor is bad but If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking at the times when it won't start, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. It's likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

Check engine light won't come on on my 93 cherokee and it won't start when the light comes on after a dozen tries it starts


Your jeep is suffering from what is called the "delayed check engine light problem". Your main computer ecu is in need of repair. Some internal components, ones that normally send power to energize the various engine relays, have gone bad from age. Have the ecu repaired. That services is offered on ebay.
