There are 3 metal contacts on the front part of the starter, if you use 2 long screw drivers you can make contact to 2 of the contacts with one screw driver and use the second to connect the 3rd contact to the 1st screw driver (currently laid across 2 contacts) If the jeep starts it means that your alternator has gone bad and will not take over for the battery.
Before trying this be sure the key is in the ignition and it the run position.
Also be sure to use a screw driver with an insulated handle( do not use a bare piece of metal!!!!!!)

On another note if your dash lights are not coming on, you may have blown an interior fuse.

1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited starts, runs a few minutes then dies


Running for five minutes sounds like something other than a security system problem (usually shuts off much earlier) but if that has been compromised it needs to be put back together or the trigger wire from the drivers door lock needs to be grounded.
I'd look to the throttle position sensor, map sensor, crank position sensor or the ballast resistor on the drivers fender. You need to do tests on those items as all influence the fuel management system after warm up. Test when it is cold and after it shuts off so you don't mistake a part malfunction only when hot. Hands on testing is the ONLY way to determine accurately exactly what is happening there. Anything else is an educated guess!!!

Sounds like the starter. If you remove the starter and take it to autozone or advance auto parts, they will test it for free.

1991 jeep cherokee laredo won't start


you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.

2000 jeep grand cherokee quad drive but onlythe rear wheels turn


usualy you will only have two tires spin at a time even in 4 lo or 4high. those tires are going to be diaginal from each other tipicly. now since your vehcle is equiped with quad drive it may employ a limited slip rear differential to help it along. however this only afects the rear axle. now you can test it by jacking your vehicle up and setting it on jack stands. one for each wheel onder the axle tube on a good solid (concreat or black top) flat surface. then have some one you know and trust to get in the car and put it into drive . now you can actualy see what wheels are spinning or not.now is were the limited slip comes in if you have one rear wheel spinning and the other is sitting still the limited slip will engage and start the other wheel spinning . now this may bang until the other wheel catches up (note that the faster the wheel is spinning the harder it is on your truck)now be very carfull stay away from the wheels tires and all other spinning parts it is a machine it can hurt you badly. but give it a try and it will answer your question. be safe hope this helps
