Having problems with your 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

My car will not start, jumper cables did not work, help me! :)

\015 I tried jumper cables, and it still wont start. When i tried to start it, first it made a quiet sputter/farty sound, and then nothing. I have no power to the lights, locks or horn. No gauges register, no nothing. :( I think it may be the battery - when i tried to start it the first time, i saw the alarm lights were flashing (no horn though) when i got out. i just dont know.Please help me!!! I just spent $400 to replace my broken water pump, all i can hope is that this might be a frugal fix. Thank you! :)\015

Thank you for your help in replacing the fuel line in the 96 Corsica 3.2 The tool for replacing it worked fine.but now the car wont start. It was working fine before replacing the line. I loosened the hose clamp on the return line and gas does drip out. I didn't try the input line. Is there something that I have to do to start the engine after the fuel lines are replaced? I have tried it over twenty times, with jumper cables on to save the battery. Please advise. Thank you


You need to get the fuel pressure checked.It can be checked at any local car garage.Also you yourself can get the fuel pressure tested.A fuel pressure testing tool is available at local auto part stores.Also its available for rent at autozone service ... Chevrolet Corsica

Cannot start My ford 1999 Ford escort was working fine Sunday but on Tuesday afternoon the engine would not start. Thinking it was the battery, I utilized jumper cables but even after 15 min it still would not start. The ''check engine'' light remains illuminated. when I attempted to start it again, it did not even make a sound. I replaced the battery and the alt this past summer. Please help me out here before I dump more and more money into this car.

I have a 96 chevy blazer v 6 . it is hard to start. cold or warm. sometimes it starts when i crank the engine with quick turns of the key. if i hook up a set of jumper cables to another car it starts immediatly with no problem and runs fine. the battery is not dead when i do this. i even bought a new batt with higher amps. still no good. jumping it always works and it runs fine. is it possible to be a weak coil and the extra battery power gives it more spark power. dont know please help.


Cejck the primary and secondary resistance of your coil - you may also want to check the voltage drop of your battery when your starter soleniod is engaged as well. If the tarter soleniod is starting to go it will pull too much current. ... Chevrolet Blazer

My daughter has a 1997 Nissan 200sx. She left her lights on and her battery died. Her cousin tried jumper cables but put them on wrong the first time. He did succeed in getting her car started but most of the electrical things in the car such as the radio,tach, speedometer,windows and flashers did not work and after about 3 miles her car died again. She is stranded and needs a quick fix. Any Help would be appreciated.

Hello I have a 2002 Saturn sl2. Wife left lights on at work and tried to have it jumped. It started and ran real ruff for a few seconds then died. The man helping her for some reason switched jumper cable positions and his battery sparked to high heaven. Now the car will crank but no start. I'm not getting spark or fuel and I've already changed the ignition control module and the cps. Fuses and relays good and checked the resistance on the coils and their fine. I tried to read any trouble codes

When i turn the key I hear 1 click and that is it. It doesn't try to turn over or start. The door buzzer and all the lights work which is why i was thinking it might not be the battery but i kept it connected to another car yesterday for at least 30 mins with jumper cables and it didn't help. I am headed to get another pair of cables just in case and try again....any other suggestions???


Sounds like a bad ground. Check all the wires from battery, paying attention to wires on the starter. If your lights dim when trying to start, it is at your battery, clean your battery connections. Bad batteries do strange things. Local auto store wi ... 1995 GMC Safari

I have a 1989 Cadillac Seville with a recurring starting problem. Car starts fine, but if you do multiple stops thereafter and try to start again. It will not start unless is either boosted off with jumper cables or you let it sit for an hour or so and then it will start. We have checked out starter and replaced it, so that is not the problem. It seems as if the starter is getting hot and won't work until car cools off. Very frustrating.


If a jump works, then it is not the starter, but the battery.But if letting it sit works, that makes it sound like the alternator is not charging right.Put a voltmeter across the battery.You can get one at Harbor Freight for $3. ... 1989 Cadillac Seville

Help me someone...i dont have money to get another car. Battery is good bcuz i used a multimeter.


Usually it'll just blow a fuse, did you check all the main fuses also? in the engine bay. Check those first. Also the cables are probably shot, your going to have to use a different set. ... 1992 Honda Civic

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Last night I jump started a friend's car. The jumper cables were connected wrong. We saw smoke and instantly disconnected them. I drove home fine, but this morning my car won't start. It has gas, the lights and radio are working fine so it's not the battery (is it?). I keep hearing my main fuse may be blown. How do I know? About how much/long wold that take to correct this problem?


Did you see the smoke before or after you jumpstarted the car? if it was before the cables were hooked up incorrectly and with the switched polarity it can not only kill your battery but also computer components. if the smoke was after the jump start ... Nissan Altima
