Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

2000 Jeep Cherokee sport

When I turn the key, it is like the battery is dead, nothing happens. I have battery power because the lights and stereo work. After I turn the key 5 or 6 times it will start right up. A few times my battery gauge has gone all the way to + and the check gage light will come on, if I pull over, turn off the ignition, and then start it back up it will go back to normal? any suggestions? My 1999 Jeep cherokee just dies on the highway. When i try to get it started again it acts like its hard for the engine to turn over, but after you let it sit for a while it will start back up. It will drive for 30 minutes and do it all over again. It sounds like a sensor but im not sure....anyone with a suggestion?

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee sport won't start. The battery is fine, the starter has been tested, there is power to the starter, there is no draw on the battery when the key is turned. You can here the fuel...


I would recommend that you check the starter relay. It is not uncommon for these to go out. It is an easy fix, and does not cost a lot either.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic, I-6, Automatic Runs great, normally starts great. Occasionally go to start the car and it is totally dead - no dome light, no door buzzer, nothing happens when I turn the key....


first off clean the battery terminals, then follow the ground wire to the body and engine ensure they have good connections. sometimes the wire on the back of the engine that goes to the body breaks. good luck

My 1994 Jeep Cherpkee Sport will not turn over when I turn the key. All systems are OK. The battery charges and lights and radio are fine. When I turn the key nothing happens. What could be the problem?


Bad starter or starter Solenoid. Grounded wire between the solenoid and battery or actually a bad battery. I've had batteries that were bad where everything worked until you went to start teh engine then it wouldn't turn over. There are 2 parts to the battery, 1 is voltage which runs the radio, windows, lights and such the other is Amperage which is needed to get the started to work. You can have good voltage but no amperage due to a dead cell. Disconnect the Negative battery terminal, connect jumper cables to a goo running vehicle, connect the positive cable to teh positive terminal and the negative clamp to the negative cable, this take your battery out of the loop, then try and start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts it's your battery if it doesn't then it is most likely your starter or Solenoid.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
