Jeep Cherokee starting issue

\015 I am having a problem where my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start consistently. When I turn the key, sometimes it starts, sometimes there is just a clicking noise. It wouldn't start at all one day. Two days later it started right up. Starter? Battery? Alternator? Other?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate
It could be the starter solenoid, Ignition switch or the battery. Have the battery & alternator checked first. I believe Auto Zone will do it for free. They might even do a started draw test for free! If the battery and alternator are ok, Have the starter checked. It's much easier than checking or changing the ignition switch. Get a service manuel for the car it will be helpful. Good Luck!!

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4X4. Everything worked fine until 11/22/2010. A strange alarm/beeping started on Monday. That beeping stopped on Tuesday, and so did the blower for the A/C-Heat-Defroster. I think it might be a wiring issue from an after-market 'kill-switch' that is suppose to prevent the vehicle from starting if payment is not made. The Jeep starts and runs fine, so it's just the defroster/heater that is a problem today.

I have a 1993 cherokee sport with a 4.0 ho motor in it. This jeep runs great but when it gets warmed up good it starts to burn oil??? It has about 140k on the odo and just started doing this.

I bought this jeep last year and don't have alot of history on it. I have been real happy with it until the smoking issue surfaced. Any advice would be appreciate

My 1999 Jeep Cherokee is having starting issues. The battery has been replaced and I just had it tuned up with new spark plugs and spark wires and also a crank sensor.

No start on a 2005 jeep grand cherokee It is a random problem. I read that the ignition switch was the problem and changed it two wkd ago, since then the problem M has shown 3 times.
