Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Engine won't turn over

My engine won't turn over when attempting to start the car. Battery appears just fine but tried jumping it just in case and it didn't help. Possibly an issue with the starter? How would I check?

    1994 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 2wd AT w/ a new starter, neutral switch and ignition switch to boot, but when I turn the key over I now get no dash lights and the starter doesn't even turn over. I thought I my have installed the switch wrong or something. I'm wondering if the knock sensor is causing it. Any help from anyone I mean this SUV isn't hard to work on.

I talked to a buddy's boss who is pretty mechanical, he said it sounds like the fuel pump. Gas just isn't getting to the engine to make it turn over.

I can't get my engine to turn over. Battery and alternator have both been checked and are fine. No problems with any cables that I've been able to find either. Could this be a bad starter or fuse? Jumping does'nt work either.

Blazer will not start have gas battery is fine

If I understand you right, it sounds like the starter solenoid went bad and could possibly work again when the engine cooled down. The other scenario is that the ignition switch is bad (on steering column) or the neutral safety switch located on the transmission side. A real fluke would be that the starter BOLTS CAME LOOSE AND JAMMED THE STARTER, IF THIS IS THE CASE LOOSEN STARTER BOLTS, WIGGLE STARTER THEN TIGHTEN BOLTS TO SPECS. 25268178-sbjsv11dlntqjzkc4qi5qeet-5-0.gif

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.

The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

I have a 2000 323i. The battery appears to be strong enough, but it won't turn over. Can you tell me if there is a fuse that maybe affecting this problem?

Have you attempted to jump start your car with either another vehicle or with a strong battery charger? If so, what were the results?

Do you hear clicking when you try to start it? If not, then clean your battery cables and then reattach and try again. If there is clicking, then you need to determine if the problem is in your starting circuit or the engine itself. So you will need to take off the serpentine belt and using a large socket wrench you need to try to turn the engine (clockwise only). If it will rotate, the problem is in your starting or charging circuits. If it won't rotate by hand then the problem is in your engine.

My engine won"t turn over on my 97 cadillac

It could be the starter. It could be a bad battery cable connection. Have you tried jump starting the engine. If it starts, then most likely it's to do with the battery or charging system.
