Battery could be at fault or there is a draw in system that pulls down battery
have battery tested and leave it disconected for a few days then reconect to see if vehicle starts
if it does battery should be o.k. next is there any thing that stayes on (aftermarket stuff)
that may cause a draw on system if thats ok need to performed parasetic draw on system
hook up voltage meter between positive cable and meter
on 20 volt schale put red wire of meter to battery positive post black wire to red wire that was hook to battery voltaged should be minimal only to keep computers alive (clock - radio preset-etc etc)
if draw is high start removing fuses in system one at a time and check the voltage meter until it drops
you have now located the faulty cicuit that that fuse feeds start looking in those area
also feel starter selenoid and alternator at rear to see if they feel warm thet could be partly switch on
killing the battery over time
good luck

endless post. on topic. read it, try it.

better yet, diagnose it.
scan the PCM to find out why the ASD relay drops out
does it? that is the first test in all, no starter.

if the battery is discharged, bad things happen as the security logic
goes nuts. (the chips dont yet run on "free energy" )

2005 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE PARASITIC DRAIN


Most drains are caused by door switches or hood switches not turning off lights. It could really be anything. You can either get a meter, pull off your Negative battery cable and put one meter lead on your now off.negative battery cable and negative battery terminal. Set your meter to read dc amps. Start pulling fuses one by one until the meter reads less then .5 amps or 500 mA. If you dont have a meter you can try pulling one every night until you battery no longer drains and narrow it down from there. Anything with power could really be causing this. Alternator and starters are also known for draining batterys while not running.

My 94 Grand Cherokee has been running fine but every now and then just won't start. Nothing, no grinding or trying. Lights and radio work fine, battery fine. Then then next day it starts right up. It is...


That is a symptom of a starter solonoid. If the solonoid is going bad it will work off and on , and this is what enguages the stater and lets it work. Your starter is most likely fine , just needs a new solonoid.
