Could be a high resistance connection between the battery and starter or on the earth strap from the battery or the earth strap from the engine to the chassis. Get someone to turn the engine over whilst measuring the voltage on the starter motor. If you can't do that then unbolt the earth straps from the chassis, clean with some emery or glass paper and grease before re-tightening. There are other possible causes but I have had this on a couple of occasions. Dave

Intermittent starting


Yes. When was the last time you had the starter changed? Has anyone crawled under the vehicle to check for a loose starter? If the starter does not engage it may be the starter solenoid ( the thing that drives the gears into contact before the starter actually turns ). This might not be ramming the gears together properly and that will cause the grinding noise, as well as an intermittent start.

My jeep would not start or even turn over but radio,lights all work


Any clicking noises? My first thought is lithe starter has failed. Typically if all the other accessories are working and the starter doesn't when you turn the key it's likely the starter. Usually an a single click is heard everytime you turn the key to the start position. If you heard a series of rapid clicks when you try to start you likely have a weak battery. A jump start may get you going.

When I attempt to start my 89 jeep cherokee, it only makes a clicking noise, near the starter relay. Then occasionally it will try to turn over, but makes a grinding noise near the starter.


try to jump start it if it starts its the battery,if it doesnt than it time to remove the starter and go have it tested,while its out look for any worn teeth on the flywheel and starter solenoid teeth also.if starter comes back ok then look at all the cables,look for corrosion as it can hide under the wire sheilding.

Wont turn over


The starter is most likely the problem,tap on the starter lightly with a hammer while trying to start the engine,dont get run over doing this it will take two people,if the engine starts,the starter needs replacing.

2005 jeep grand cherokee wont start...batt good but just makes a clicking noise when i try to start it


Make sure that your terminal ends are clean where they contact the battery and make sure that the ground wire connection on the block is good. If the clicking noise is coming from the starter and the battery is fully charged and has been load tested, chances are that the starter solenoid has worn out (replace with starter). If you can turn the engine by hand it is not "locked up" If you can't, changing the starter is a waste of time as you have a far larger problem.
Do what I said and you should find a solution to the problem.
Good Luck!!!.

2007 jeep wrangler tip start feature problem


First I would ask a friend to tow you to the auto parts store, and yes it sounds like you need a new starter. When the starter kept running it is because the bendix was stuck engaged. When you shut the jeep off and it would not turn over it is becuase the starter is fried. That happens with electrical componants.

98 jeepwrangler won't start


This is basic, but first off, try to shift it into neutral, and try to start it. It is easy for the linkage to get out of adjustment, where it thinks the jeep is in gear. If that does not work, make sure you have battery power to the ignition and starter.
