I had same prob - no rhyme nor reason as to when, where or why it wouldn't start. After two new starters the shop finally found a starter wire/cable that was corroded on the inside. Mech' could move it back and forth and it would / would not start. Changed cable six months ago - no problems since. Hope it helps.

    Changed which cables? Mine is doing this. Just had it towed home.

    Sorry, I don't know which cable it was. The mech' at the dealer told me about it but didn't show me. He said that when he moved the cable back

    I think it is a wire harness behind the fusebox. It is a Control Module that controls various electronic functions. I will ask when they replace mine. I will also report if this fixes my problem. I had my jeep towed home last night, and this morning I started it now problem. It is weird.

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee will start fine after it sits overnight or for a hour or so but won t start if i go to the store and get in it five minutes later. After 1 hour it cranks right up

Sounds like a fuel mixture issue, being a 2003 must be EFI, could be faulty mass air flow sensor, fuel mixtures being to rich when engine is at operating temp.

I had a similar issue where the alarm went off, pulled the battery to silence, and upon re-connecting it the Jeep wouldn't start. It's a protection mechanism built into the security system to prevent tampering/bypassing the system. The computer goes into lockdown and won't start...

To clear it you have to reconnect the battery and leave it sit. It's supposed to be a 60min cycle, but it seemed like it took longer for me. I plugged it in before leaving for work (in my wife's vehicle) and she tried starting it several hours later when she needed to run an errand and it started right up.

Hi I have a 96 jeep cherokee country. It will start, I will drive it a distance, can be short or long, then shut it off. When I go to start it again, it won't start. After it sits for a while sometimes...

It sounds like your starter. Sometimes when starters get old the armature and/or field windings swell when they get hot. The reason is rather complex but I can tell you this is the most likely problem and the only fix is to replace the starter.

Transmission over temp signal vehicle won't

First I was told it was a battery... replaced it Then two months later I was told it was a starter.... replaced Another two months later I was told it was the ignition switch... replaced it yesterday...
Just walked out of a restaurant 24 hours later and the car does not want to start. The dealership seems to be inept at figuring it out, and Jeep helpline doesn't offer any help at all.

2000 Jeep Cherokee suddenly looses traction

Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Check the transmission fluid level and top off as needed. If the problem is not severe, an additive such as Lucas transmission additive may help.
