Sheck and make sure battery cables are tight. also if vehicle runs a timing belt u may have skipped the timing due to belt wear.

Well I am a certified mechanic and I would pull the air cleaner housing open the throttle shoot some carb cleaner in it and if it starts even if only for few seconds your fuel pump is bad. If it doesn't than you need to scan the car with a scanner for no start codes. You can rent a scanner at most automotive part stores for a deposit and when you return it undamaged you get your money back. Usually costs nothing. But if you don't have any pressure on the fuel rail that is most likely your problem. You can clear all the dashboard codes and lights with a scanner if they don't straiten it out on its own. Disconnect battery for a few minutes sometimes that will clear old codes. Only clear codes if you have found out that the fuel pump was bad otherwise you'll need them codes for figuring out the no start problem. Bryan ASE master certified mechanic.

Cycle your key on (not start) then off, on, off, then on and leave it on. Now count the flashes from the "check engine light" and get back to us with those codes. It will flash a 2 digit number, but pause briefly between numbers. For example: 3 flashes,pause, then 3 more flashes is code 33. 1 flash, pause , then 5 more would be code 15. When you get 5 flashes, pause, then 5 more, that's code 55 and it just means end of message or codes. You'll also get a short pause between codes as well, so have a pad and paper ready and keep your eyes on the check engine light.

1995 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE STARTING PROBLEM


Hi there bjam

Why not let the computer tell you what the problem is? Your Jeep has on board diagnostics that can help locate problems it is having. These diagnostics are normally accessed by a 'Code Reader' that plugs in to a socket normally located under the dash on the left side of the steering column.

You can buy a Code Reader for $60.00 to $100.00 and use it once. OR..(just a suggestion) you can do it manually, which will only cost you about ten minutes of your time. Here's how.

First off, what to expect:
  • The error codes are two digit numbers.
  • They are communicated in the form of a flashing light on your dashboard. It will blink a number of times followed by a short pause, then again followed by a longer pause.
  • The short pause separates the digits.
  • The long pause separates the individual codes
  • For example, Blink-Blink short pause Blink long pause would be a code 21
  • The codes will be displayed from lowest to highest
Are you ready?
  • Get a pen, a pad of paper, your keys and get in the Jeep.
  • Turn the ignition ON (not start)-OFF, ON-OFF, ON within 5 seconds.
  • Just after the last ON, the instrument panel will begin flashing.
  • Write down the flash patterns.
  • If you missed one, keep going. Then repeat the test.
When you finish, get back to me with the codes so I can look them up for you. They should tell us whats going on. Then we can act accordingly.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate!

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon. It was running fine until two days ago. I went to start it on Saturday and it would only make a clicking noise. I was able to start it with jumper cables. I drove for an hour...


i had the same exact problem with my chevy s-10, but once i replaced the battery it ran fine no problem, u may have fried some circuits and relays while jumping the car, and alot of times that clicking noise is your relay burning out, did your car start doing weird things too? like ejecting cd's, flashing lights really fast and weird noises?
