Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
If you leave your ignition key in the normal running position and then slip underneath your car from the rear of the passenger's side front tire, you can slide forward to see the starter and it's solenoid on it's backside. If you take a screwdriver and short between the smaller, center screw on the solenoid and the upper, larger screw (or bolt) you should get a spark and the sound of the starter motor cranking over the engine. Explanation: The solenoid tends to get sticky after a while and becomes reluctant to go back to it's "at rest" position. After driving the car awhile it normally falls back into place.
