It definitely sounds like the starter is stuck, an old trick that used to work on V8s in muscle cars was to get a hammer and tap the outside of the starter a couple times. This mostly happens on starters with internal solenoids, tapping a couple times will unstick the solenoid and may let you start the car. This is a sign of the starter failing and you should replace asap. Stores like Autozone will test it once you have it removed from the truck.

If the connections to the battery are clean ,and tight,and the battery is good,and you know this for sure,then the starter is the problem,they are a low gear reduction starter,and are bad to do just what yours is doing,the starter is the most likely problem,if this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee drive it a while turn the engine off wont start back up


Your starter solenoid armature is sticking. It is mounted atop the starter and the heat from the exhaust manifold sometimes causes this problem on older systems. You can try a temporary fix by placing some type of heat shield over the solenoid using something that is fire proof but replacing the solenoid will eventually be necessary.

My 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited died on the road now it wont start back battery is still good it seems like its out of gad but there is gas in the tank


If you can hear the pump running inside the tank right after it stalls and you turn the key to the run position, I'd be looking at the crank position sensor. If that fails, fuel will reach the fuel rail but the injectors won't fire. Also check cam sensor, pump relay and ASD relay in power distribution center.

I have a grand cherokee 1993 it wont im not getting fire


Might be your crank sensor, your coil, your distributor or even your ecu. All of those being bad will prevent the jeep from firing. If you do not have a check engine light lighting up on the dash when you turn the key to on, before trying to crank the engine, then it's your ecu which is bad and needs repair.

Having trouble with 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited not starting when the key is turned. It clicks but does not fire. It takes several tries to get the engine to start.


Three items to check there. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure, check the starter relay (quick way is to steal another in the power center and switch them). Also check the engine grounds and that the starter solenoid is engaging. If you have power at the small terminal on the starter when the key is turned to start, good bet the starter is bad.

Jeep wont start


The crank position sensor is on the bell housing of the transmission, very hard to see, on passenger side, below the valve cover, depending if it is an early 2000 or a later 2000 model.
