SOURCE: i have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee and the brake lights wont work

there's a possibility that it might be the socket that the bulb actually goes into. my break light did something similar to that. the socket only cost about 8 bucks from the dealer.

SOURCE: shift indicator light 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.

You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.

There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.

Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.

Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.

Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.

Re-install everything in the opposite order.

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Cherokee wont start. stater and bettery

Too many items that can cause that for anyone to give you an absolute "fix" but : You need to do some testing to narrow it down to if you have a fuel or ignition problem (spark). If it starts when you crank it and spray carb cleaner into throttle body, then it's on the fuel side.
One common item to both and a common failure item as well is the crank position sensor. Check that as well. There are tests that you can do using a digital volt-ohmeter. Tests and expected results are listed in haynes or chiltons as well as other inexpensive manuals. Don't change anything unless you verify it as bad and if you have a security system make sure it is not locking you out from starting.
Once tested, you can ask back here for specific problems if any.
Good Luck

2004 jeep grand cherokee wont start at all


Check you battery terminals first. If they look clean clean them again with a wire brush. Then check battery voltage. You should have 12 to 12.5 volts. While cranking (starting engine) your voltage should drop to no more than 9.5 volts. If it does go below 9.5 then get a new battery. If all that checks out, then check for power to the activation wire to you starter. It should be the small wire. If you get no power there while cranking then you have a problem somewhere in the wiring possibly the starter relay. BUT if you do get power there then sorry sounds like you were sold a bunk starter.

2003 Grand Jeep Cherokee will not start.


Could be a faulty starter or bad connection between the battery and starter. You could use a meter to check for voltage at the starter but it will not show resistance in the cables.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start ???


sounds like a bad fuel pump. open the gas cap and listen when you turn the key to the on position, not all the way to engage the starter, you should hear a buzzing for 5 or so secands that is the fuel pump in your gas tank. if you dont hear that buzzing the intank fuel pump is probley not working.

When turning the key to start, it does nothing. then you will try again and it starts. Is this a starter or a relay problem


I WOULD CHECK BATTERY CABLES FIRST.MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND TIGHT.IF ALL IS GOOD CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS.IF BATTERY GOOD.STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER FAULTY.REMOVE STARTER AND SOLENOID TAKE TO AUTO PARTS STORE THEY WILL DO A CURRENT DRAW TEST TO SEE IF STARTER HAS A SHORT OR HIGH CURRENT DRAW DUE TO WORN FIELD WINDING OR ARMATURE TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE SO YOU WONT LOSE RADIO PLAYING CODE.

The jeep wont start after its turned off. it doesn't appear to be the batterie or alternator they are both charged when the jeep wont turn over they are running at 14 amps


You have me a little confused. The battery can't be over 12.5 volts, and the alternator puts out 14 volts, not amps.

Are you sure it is not the neutral safety or clutch safety switch?
Check if voltage is actually appearing at the solenoid terminal of the starter.

But assuming you don't have dirty battery terminals, or a missing engine ground strap, then it is your starter. You can have it tested for free if you take it out and take it into whomever sells replacements.
Last worst case possibility is that actually it is the engine that is siezed.

My cherokee sport cranks real slow and wont start


Check battery voltage should be 12v or better with motor off. start engine read voltage again should be 12.9 or better and then turn all accessories on...voltage should be same or slight y less but best would be at least 13v let it idle and volts should not creep downward..
Volts should never be below 12 and never at 14 except for a brief time after startup. Turn engine off and disable ignition system, then check across battery while craqnking. Volts should not go below 9.5. If so, have batt charged and load tested. If good, replace starter. No valid electrical computer testing can be done without a fully charged battery.
