I hate that this has to be my first post,But im lost. My sister in law was going to sell me her 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee once I sold my FJ cruiser, Until yesterday she calls me and tell me that the car has a blown motor and i can just have it. Towed to my house today and me being eager as ever got right to work on seeing whats up. Here is what I know so far. The jeep died all of the sudden while she was driving down the road Lost all power(Electronics and Engine).
She didnt hear any weird noises when it happened. It was low on oil when It arrived but I see No signs of a blown motor that I can tell. Battery is Dead and doesnt seem to hold a charge. The alternator was tested and failed so I bought a replacement. The the starter seemed like it was doing something (ratcheting sound) the very first time I tried to start it as if it was only a dead battery, So I tried to jump start it with no luck and no more clicking sound.
I made this video in hopes of helping you guys better understand the issue.
