Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Begin by checking voltage (with a volt meter) at the battery terminals (part of the battery not the connectors). Voltage should read somewhere around 12volts (a volt above or slightly less is OK, but not lower than 11.9) Then move the positive probe to the connector and check, again, move the negative probe to the connector. Leave the probe at the positive terminal and check voltage between the block and the battery by touching the negative probe to any metal part of the block. Continue working your way down the harness on the positive side, checking volts at the power distribution center, fuses and at the main battery connection on the starter. As you get further from the battery the voltage will be slighty less but you should not see a radical drop. If you find a large drop or no volts at all where you'd expect to have a reading, stop there and find the cause.
Chances are the connections on the battery are bad and you won't have to look further than that.
If battery is not at the proper voltage, re charge it and then put the meter on both terminals and check running voltage. It should be at least 12.9 to 14 volts running and should not drop below 12.5 with all accessories on including the lights. If it does, check the alternator and drive belt.
