Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee lmtd 4.7l ho that has been having a lot of issue. The battery has been drained from something in my car. I have been having to charge the battery once it charges it works fine but then it will not have enough power for the starter to turn the motor over... I have turned off all lights inside the vehicle and made sure nothing was on. I have found a braided ground wire that connects to the firewall (near the pcm) that bolts to the motor and goes under the vehicle. (that is where its disconnected) could this be the cause of my issue? I cannot find where it is suppose to be attached. when I turn the ignition to on radio, seats, lights work but will not turn over until i charge the battery. I have had the battery tested at 2 different auto zones as well as my alternator. please help!

Hello. Yes the problem is that that braided ground wire must be connected so that everything is properly grounded. It bolts to bare metal on the frame of the car. Be sure the spot where you attach the ground wire is clean and bare metal other wise the ground will be poor and your problems will continue. Joe

I have a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee limited with a 4.7 V8 HO. Do have to put a 4.7 V8 HO engine back in it or can I just put a regular 4.7 V8 in it?


the HO is a high output version of the 4.7. the differences are internal, the externals *should* be the same.

to be sure, though, call an auto parts store and ask them if the 4.7 regular and 4.7 HO use the same MAIN SEAL. this sill ensure that the regular 4.7 will fit a 4.7 HO transmission, as the main seal comes between the back of the engine and the front of the transmission.

Hi Joko,

What you are describing is a failure of a main circuit. The first thing you should check is yo make sure that your battery is in good condition and that the cables are clean and tight. Let me know if yu find anything wrong there. Then there may be another main circuit problem. Check all of the fuses in your fuse block in the engine compartment. If any of these fuses are blown, it will usually cause several things to not work. If you find any fuses blown, DON'T REPLACE IT YET. Let me know WHICH fuse is blown and I can help you find out why it blew so you can get the problem fixed.

Get back to me on this and we will continue.

I had a similar problem with my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It turned out that the battery posts and cables were corroded. I cleaned them up and it solved the problem immediately. Something to check on before you spend the money on a new battery anyway!
