Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My Jeep fails to turn over when I try to start it. I replaced the battery. I removed the hot cable when it was running and it continued to run so it is not the alternator. I checked down around the starter and found no loose connections at all. The battery ground is clean and tight, What could be the problem.

It could be your silanoid in the starter or the starter in genral. An also now days with computers in the cars it is not a good idea to remove the hot cable while its running it can damage the computers and cause major problems. Hope this helps

super easy.
  1. jumper cable cranked with donor running car work?
  2. yes, battery is dead, or only discharged, charge it work?
  3. yes jumps but charge fails, bingo battery toast.
  4. so the jumper fails. in #1 , all that is a bad starting system. (not a part, the system)
  5. clean battery lugs. check fuses, and then hot wire the starter solenoid lug (dinky lug ,not huge one) (in park and wheels chocked keys off)
  6. ok that fails the starter is bad.
  7. ok that works. so the KEY line is dead. try starting in neutral yet?> bingo works, bad PRNDL switch on tranny side.
  8. the KEY line can be interrupted with some alarms, on a jeep it has Immobilizer that cuts fuel not cranking. so.... PRNDL switch bad or the key switch is self .

I have a 1976 jeep j10. I have replaced the starter, starter solenoid, ignition module, both battery cables(positive,negative), cable from starter to starter solenoid, coil, cap and rotar. it will click...

Could be: a) starter cannot turn the motor flywheel (motor frozen or jammed)
or b) the battery is weak (not enough power to crank the motor)

Turn the dome light on and see if it is bright, see if light diminishes completely when engaging starter (high current drawn by starter).

Try to turn engine by pulling the alternator belt with transmission in neutral to see if motor is jammed. Or engage in a high gear and push the car and see if motor turns.

If motor is not frozen, jump and boost the battery if you suspect weak battery and see if you have the same problem.

Ignition switch

engine will not crank.
if it dont crank it can not start. nor sustain and run.
the first steps are:
1; check all fuses.
2: jump cable start engine, s
starts now, then the battery is weak ,dead or JUST discharged.

the battery must read 12.6vdc rested or its weak.

if jumper fails to start car.
we then hot wire the starter solenoid.
no crank now, the starter is bad
yes, cranks now, the key line is dead
see the 83 tricks here, for making it start.

same for hot wire trick, (test)

I think what you will find is that at some point in time someone replaced the ends of your battery cables with the little terminals that use screw clamps to tighten the cable ends to the wires and you have a loose or corroded connection there and not where you tighten the cables to the battery post you wiggled it when you removed the battery and now has a good enough connection to start it tighten them even if they appear tight and clean them if the appear white or green or black

1994 jeep, wont start, wont run

It sounds like you may have a bad connection somewhere. Start with your battery cables and then look at all of your ground wires as well. When you try to start your jeep see if the wires from the battery get hot.

Absolutely! It sounds like a faulty wire probably at the starter or battery cable. A loose connection will let a vehicle turn over, but not at full force. I would bet a wire to the starter being loose causes your problem and once you find it a good tightening will fix your issue

did you replace these things because the engine was turning over slower then normal?
or no turning over at all?
or turning over but wouldn't start?

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...

First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)

Jeep won't turn over

Check battery first. If battery is good, charge it and your vehicle should start, The symptons your having are indication of a bad charging circuit. When you start it leave the Negative battery loose enough to pull off after it is running, if it continues to run then it was a bad connection somewhere in the circuit or your regualtor, an internal part of the alternator is bad allowing the current to drain in you battery slowly over time when the engine is running. If battery checks good remove alternator and take to an autoparts store and have them check it. Generally most vehicles have a battery or charge light on the dash that will be lit.

Clicking sound when trying to start 1987 jeep cherokee.

Probably is the electrical side. Start your vehicle, with the engine running disconnect the positive battery cable. If the engine dies then your alternator is the problem, if engine continues to run the battery is at fault.
