Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Make sure the battery is fully loaded, check voltage when the key is turned to START. If voltage drops below 10vdc, jump start vehicle and have starting/charging system at AutoZone or similar auto parts store. If voltage at the battery is good, check wiring from battery to starter solenoid, make sure terminals are free of rust and corrosion and tight, wiggle the wires to make sure no loose connections exist. You should get the same voltage at the starter solenoid as you did at the battery terminal, if not replace cable. If you get same voltage at the starter solenoid, the solenoid itself or the starter may be worn/defective. There is a starter rebuild kit available at auto parts stores for a fraction of the price of a new starter.
