Check the exhaust. I have had problems with my '98 Cherokee starting if there are holes in the exhaust. Once I replaced the holes, it started without any problems.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Cherokee High Idle

This is a old post but wanted to suggest a fix for anyone who might come across this problem. The problem obviously started with the act of kindness (jump start) and so is more than likely computer related. You'll probably find a "reboot" is in order and that's simple. Just take off your negative battery cable (good time to do a little cleaning while you're at it) and replace it. Start it up and you'll probably find the problem is gone.

1998 Jeep Cherokee -- car won't start. Turns over


have scanned to find problem code to get an idea of what it is. .it may either be the crank or cam sensor, check the crank sensor first. if it is bad it sends wrong timing info to pcm. therefore jeep will not start!! It is either the camshaft or crankshaft positioner. I would check the crank pos. first. Zach Cabot, AR

1998 Jeep Cherokee 2.5td Ltd: intermittent cranking problem.


It sounds like you need to get the starter motor either repaired or replaced. Due to constant trying to start the car, it maybe that the battery is discharged a bit, causing the engine not to respond as usual, so you have to give more throttle. First , get the starter sorted and charge the battery, then you will see how it goes . Hope this helps

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start.


You need a new battery. The lights only take about 10 - 15 amps, the starter takes 200 - 400 amps, Replace the battery and all will be well

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
