Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Most likely your ignition coil is fine. It sounds like you have a bad starter solenoid. On some cars the solenoid is mounted on the side of the starter motor, and on others it's integral to the starter. On a front-wheel drive Toyota, it is on top of the starter motor and has replaceable contacts.
In all cases, FIRST DISCONNECT THE GROUND (negative battery terminal on newer cars) BEFORE WORKING ON THE STARTER!
Solution for a Toyota is to replace the contacts. For cars with an external solenoid, replace the solenoid. For cars with an integral solenoid, replace the starter assembly.
