Bad ignition coil, check to see if it's cracked. It'll be on the other end of the wire connected to the top of your distributor cap.

Crankshaft Position Sensor most likely, that's what it was with me. It is a pain to change so good luck. If that does not work you may look into: Camshaft Sensor, Fuel Pump/Filter, Injectors

SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks but won't start

Same thing happened to me at about 140k. It was the fuel pump. Best way to test if your pump is failing and loosing pressure is to see if the car will start immediately after it has been running, or turn the key to the alt position for a few minutes before starting. If your engine fires faster after it has been running or the key has been in the alt position you will probably need a new fuel pump. Great news is with a very deep socket to get the tank straps off its a 30 minute job to replace the pump/filter assembly.

SOURCE: Check engine light, battery light come on and stay

You have a problem in the regulator. (or field wire is grounded somewhere) Check which alt you have (some have external regulators) If internal, and field is not grounded, then alt has to come out (defective)

SOURCE: generator light on 1996 jeep cherokee. what does

First clean the battery terminals & their connection to the battery. Check to see if the alternator belt is tight. Once started, connect an amp. meter to thebattery terminals. Black to black, red to red. If the reading is over 13.2, alternator is charging. If it is not, change the alternator. If it is over 13.2, you may need a new battery. Have a load test done at any reputable automotive store. Hope this helps & if it does please do the right thing & recommend this advice. Thanks

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.

Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

Jeep won't start.

If it is not cranking then the starter motor/solenoid is either defective or it is not receiving the power from the battery. Did you check to see if the starter motor is receiving power when you turn ignition to start position?

yes, then the starter works and key line is dead.

1998 Jeep Cherokee 2.5td Ltd: intermittent cranking problem.

It sounds like you need to get the starter motor either repaired or replaced. Due to constant trying to start the car, it maybe that the battery is discharged a bit, causing the engine not to respond as usual, so you have to give more throttle. First , get the starter sorted and charge the battery, then you will see how it goes . Hope this helps
