  1. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hello, My 2008 Cherokee (3.7) made that clicking sound when I turned the key. Replaced the starter motor, and it's still making that clicking sound and the motor will not turn. Battery is good, fuses are good... the only way to start it is to run a wire direct from the +ve batter port...
  2. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi Everyone! A little background here: I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 with about 170k Miles on it that has been sitting for a year. I had bought a brand new Wrangler and wasn't around much this past year, so now I am trying to figure out why I can't get it to start. Before buying the new...
  3. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello I am relatively new to the Jeep world but i have had a 93 YJ 2.5L for about a year now. Last night it started multiple times with no issues. This morning I attempted to start it with no luck. Removed the starter and had it tested at Napa and Oriellys and passed at both stores. Put it back...
  4. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 2011 JKU Sahara. On mornings below 40 degrees, on my first attempt to start, I hear the starter kick on and it is followed by a horrible grinding sound. Sounds like the bendix isn't engaging the flywheel. it will start right up on the second try and will start fine the rest of the day...
  5. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So, I've been chasing a starter demon for the better part of a year now. I was replacing starters roughly every 2-3 months and this past Thanksgiving I just let the Jeep sit when it reared it's head again. Tired of walking to work and getting rides everywhere so help me figure this out, please...
  6. Jeep CJ Forum
    Someone who knows about welding please tell me it's not destroyed! The new starter i put on my project cj-5 found a weak spot on the transmission housing that it bolts to. Finally got the old 304 to crank after months of cussing and bleeding. Sounds a little rough but a new and rerouted exhaust...
  7. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey Guys, Lots of issues with this Jeep. I replaced NSS, Battery, Starter because it would not start. I'm no mechanic, that's for sure. Watched a lot of repair videos and read posts. Previously, when I replaced starter and other parts, the Jeep ran great for 11 days. Then, tried to start...
  8. KJ Liberty Forum
    Afternoon, first time poster. I am in a bind. I have a 07 Jeep Liberty 4WD 3.7l ( I believe) V6. I parked it on an incline (Engine facing Downhill) and let it sit there for a couple of hours [common Practice]. When I went to go start it would not turn over. After quite a few attempts (over 20) I...
  9. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I've got a couple of questions here. My 98 Cherokee has been having starting issues. Basicly, it'll start, then I'll drive a minute to the store, and when I come back out, it won't start back up. If I switch to Neutral to start, it will crank right up. A couple of nights ago, I hit a point...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I've been having this reoccurring problem with my 2000 TJ Wrangler 4.0 5 speed. It will start fine for a few days then occasionally it decides not too. I've recently replaced the starter. So my first thought was to check connections at the starter and at the battery and clean them. Also...
  11. Jeep CJ Forum
    Howdy, this is tyler. I bought my cj about 3-4 months ago and have only now been forced to start working on the wiring. the vehicle is cranked via a button under the dash that is wired to the starter solenoid. (the starter solenoid has been used as a junction by previous owners and is festooned...
  12. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Ok ladies and gents, here is the deal. About 15 months ago, my mother bought a Jeep from a guy for $1,000 before our move out to Cali (from Utah). Before we took it, the owner of the shop (the man who sold it to us) put in a brand new NSS. The Jeep drove great, never had a single problem with...
  13. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey guys, I just replaced the heater core on my jeep yesterday, everything went swimmingly, but now for some unknown reason the jeep won't start.

  16. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I have not completely dug around the forum yet, but here is my issue: 99 Cherokee Sport 4.0 4WD Radio light was starting to fade in and out, getting some intermittent gage drop outs (I know the gage issue is the connection in the back of the gage panel which can be corrected by giving it a...

    Hello, Yesterday, I was pulling out of my driveway, and everything turned on fine, no weird sounds, fluids up to date, nice battery charge and I went to go do something so I shut the car off for a bit and tried to start it up again and it only makes one loud click sound and stops. The battery is...

    Hello, I am new to this forum and thought someone out there might have some ideas. I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Liter Limited. It has close to 200K on it. It has been having issues starting. It turns over then it will just stop then it will continue to turn over and start. Sounds...
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi all, My 2000 Jeep TJ is taking a long time to turn over (a good 8 seconds). Would this be the starter motor? Engine light came on just now as well... Also seeing the acceleration deteriorating... Assume i'll need a mechanic to get a hold of my jeep but if anyone has any pointers that would...

    I drive a yj with only 90k miles on it, a couple months ago, once it first dipped below about 35 degrees or so, my jeep wouldn't start, it clicks once and only once when the key is cranked. the voltage gauge reads at about 8 so i know its not a battery problem, but i cleaned the terminals and...
