Sorry to break into the subject but i'm having my own problems with the starting system. My jeep starts up just fine cold and has plenty of power. But after running a few errands and the it gets to operating temperature for approximately 20-30 minutes the next time i try and start it i get nothing out of the starter. I turn the key to on and get lights, radio, everything, but when i turn the key to start it up i get nothing, not even a click. I have replaced the starter thinking it was the solenoid, cleaned battery terminals, checked grounds. My next option i can think of is the starter relay in the fuse box but i'm not exactly sure the best way to test that without driving the jeep around until it gets warmed up and then switching all the relays to see if it starts. Any ideas would be welcome.

Did you jump the battery or the starter with the cables?

Reason I ask is because you also can't rule out corroded battery cables until you've tried jumping the starter directly.

Take a screw driver or wire of some sort and cross the big copper post on top to the small silver post with the small wire going to it if it does not spin the starter than it is bad

Are you getting 12 volts to the small wire on starter with the key in the start position?

I put in a starter off an 03 grand cherokee and the starter fit but the small wire/ solenoid wire connect was different . So i cut it off the old one and spliced it togther / twisted the wires....i was getting nothing before either though, tested my old starter and it was bad....along with the battery....confused here
