    Not a Grand, just Cherokee 4.0. When looking at the correct fuse box, which relay would make the click?

Hi. A single click from under the hood on an attempted start could mean a bad starter relay. You may want to test the battery also if there is a charge. Might be the car is not charging the battery.

Yes, there is another relay plate / fuse box, for 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4.0 liters engine. On the passenger's side under the hood is placed the fuse box / relay plate no.# 2. See picture below:

Only one relay can make one click when turning "ON" ignition.
The relays diagram is:
R1 = Reserve relay
R2 = Reserve relay
R3 = A/C compressor clutch relay
R4 = Horn relay
R5 = Central locking relay
R6 = Windscreen wiper motor relay
R7 = Wiper motor up/down relay
R8 = Unused relay
R9 = Unused relay
R10 = Fuel pump relay

Is it out of gas? Try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body and see if it starts then. If so, you have a fuel delivery problem. If not, you have an electrical problem (no spark).

Why wont my 1995 jeep cherokee stay started?


if you had corroded battery terminal look around the battery +ve terminal to see if there is another smaller guage wire that may have corroded through and fallen off. The big cable you cleaned powers the starter , the other wire powers the ignition and may need connecting.

Battery good, alternator, starter all good. Fuses good. When turning the key to start there is no power at all. no


Just concentrate for the moment on the battery, starter, and ignition switch. Your 92 jeep is a complicated marvel, but all you need to do is get the starter turning the engine for all those automatic things to happen and turn it back into a mobile jeep.
As long as you have battery power at the switch, and even bigger battery power at the starter, and you connect the three of them together...instant bingo, the engine starts, or should if everything is working right. If I understand you right, you do have power to the switch, just nothing in start, or you 'd have noted that. Check engine light on, and warning lights and gauges work, yes? Then the switch is working that much, anyway. The switch start position should transmit power to the starter on the small wire that is on the starter. You can check for power there when the key is held in crank (start). Easy to check with a meter or a testlight. You stated battery and starter are good, so if the cable connecting them is good and tight., your problem may be in the start circuit from the switch to the starter (starter solenoid, to be exact). So it's ign. switch to starter relay to starter (solenoid).. Check for power on that path. Quick check at starter relay: pull the relay out (in the power distribution box) it connects to 4 terminals.. One terminal should be hot all the time. check with testlight. If nothing there, check the 40 amp fuse or battery connection or wiring. If one is hot, then have someone hold the key in crank. Now 2 terminals should have power. If not then ignition switch or the neutral safety switch or the wiring between them needs diagnosing. If two terminals do have power, try another relay. maybe yours went out. If a good relay doesn't help, then starter solenoid or starter or your wiring needs further troubleshooting. Hope you find it, over...

Look for a power relay in the fuse box under the hood.When you find it change it with another one in the fuse box that has the same part number on it.Make sure not to use the fuel pump relay.

Find relay and give it a tap, to see if that helps. Not sure on that if its along drivers fender under hood or not, but listen for click from small 1"x1" roughly relay attached somewhere in engine compartment area, firewall, fender area.
