I had a similar problem with my 2004 JGC. try checking for corrosion on the battery terminals. If they are clean with a wire brush. If that doesn't work look for detrioration on the battery cable itself. Unfortunatley for mine it was the battery cable and it required replacement. Expect to shell out a couple of hundred bucks if its the latter.
good luck.

Hi dcwise,

Coming to your rescue....Check on the earthing cables from the battery and especially from the management computer....Once those have been checked try replacing the engine main relay and go through all the fuses....Let me know if you live happily ever after

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

Check the cables and cable connections to the battery to make sure they are tight and free of corrosion. Test the battery and make sure it doesn't have a bad or dead cell in it which would cause it to not have sufficient amperage to start the motor.
