2000 alero wont start could this be the starter

it could be a bad starter, you need to have someone turn the key while you test the skinny wire going to the starter. When the key is turned the test lite should lite, if it doesnt lite then there is another problem if it does lite then it is the starter

About two months ago i took my '99 jeep cherokee to the local food store and when i came out of the store (3 minutes later) the car would not start. I then left it there came back to it hours later and it...

well im not a jeep guy but it sounds like it may be your starter solinoid ,im not sure if its on the starter or if its simalar to a ford having it on the fender. u may want to check and see if your getting power there. to find the solinoid just folow the positive batery cable. it will go right to it you can then check the small wire for power while someone helps you by turning the key. if there is power check the big wire that goes to the starter. if the solinoid on on the starter it will be just a short copper connector if you have power there when the key is turned then the starter is open. the starter shouldnt be shorted or you wouldnt have the lights and radio dim a little it should just about kill them off. if u dont have power to the little wire on the solinoid then try jumping the small wire to power. be carful not to shot to ground. and also be real carful not to get ur hands where they shouldnt be anytime especialy when someone else is turning the key. if still no start but u do have power to the solinoid and still wont start even if u jump the little wire then u may have a bad solinoid. if u have a multi meter it will help a lot in your tests.first read voltage at the battery. turn the key and see if it drops. if not then u can check for voltage drops if it does drop the skipp down a little put the meter on volts and put one lead on the batter positive and the other on the solinoid. this will check the battery cable. have someone turn the key. you should not get much of a reading. less the a volt or u need a new cable. then the solinoid. check across both big terminals. same her u but u will read 12 or what ever ur volts are at the time...may be 12.6. when u turn the key u should drop to zero. if if u had no voltage before turning the key then u probly have a bad starter. if that checks out then check the wire from the solinoid to the starter. if u have one. u should read zero untill u hit the key then just a fraction of a volt. like i said if its a full volt the wire is definatley bad.
if u did have big difference in battery volts when truning the key then u most likely have a shorted starter. try taking it off and check to see if u can turn it. see if there is anything broken and laying inside of it. check to make sure it still has some brushes. if it smell real burnt the replace it. ok by now u should have got something. ether shorting the small solinoid wire to power and it starts then its from the ignition switch forward. some cars have a fuse in the fues box just for the crank wire. not sure about jeep. if u found there power to the starter andno big drop in volts at the battery then ur starter is open or not grounded. but the ground shouldt be the case unless your starter bolts come loose. one more thing to check is grounds you should have a big one from the battery. and a smaller one going to the fender or fram. also check the ground from the engine to the firewal. i think jeep put them there too. hope this helps good luck let me know what u find out if u still cant get it going.

I have a 2003 jeep libierty .. the key is placed in ignition but wont start the car,, the string wheel is hard to move back and forth it is stuck .. the key dosen't start the jeep .. i was stuck for 2hr...

I may be misreading your post but, it sounds like the steering lock is preventing you from turning the key... sometimes you have to put some force to turn the wheel. It wouldn't hurt either to apply a little bit of lubricant in to the key cylinder. If you are able to turn the key to the start position and it still doesn't start, there is a good chance your battery or starter might be dead. Hope this helps!

Jeep wont start checked connection and fuses

Check the battery, it sounds like it's flat. Try charging the battery to see if it recovers, but if the battery is about 3 years old or more it is likely to have failed and replacement is the only viable solution.

Jeep turns over but will not start

I am going to assume that you didn't accidentally put DIESEL in?? If you did, siphon all you can out and add fresh GAS(!) and 3-4 bottles Octane booster.

Squirt a bit of Starting Ether in the Air CLeaner inlet
Start Jeep
Squirt Ether
Start Jeep
Start Jeep
Squirt Ether
Start Jeep
Repeat until it runs. Do not use alot of Ether - will blow engine!!!

If you didn't put Diesel in, and KNOWING that the problems are usually FIRE-related, replace all FIRE-related parts ($40.00)

Get new ROTOR (Thingy that spins inside CAP, distributes HVolts)
Get new CAP
Get new cables (change cables to new CAP 1 at a time!!!) DO NOT RUN cables neatly. Cross them over each other in looms
Get New sparkplugs (Do not overtighten. Turn to seat snugly, then 1/4 turn more
