New member with '04 WJ w/problem

Hello all,

I''m the proud owner of a sick 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited. It has the 4.7 V8.

It acts like it has a dead battery but the battery is charged. The starter solenoid clicks when the ignition is actuated but the engine will not turn over. The battery is new and the alternator and starter have both been tested and checked "good". All connections seem to be good and no wiring issues are evident. I'm stumped.

I was able to jump start it the first time it happened but I haven't been able to do even that since last Friday. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Chuck

Make sure the Battery connections are nice and tight. Also look for corrosion!!!!!

Depending who tested your starter...I'm not so sure I'd trust it's working. I had mine tested at Advanced and the fat azz at the counter didn't even know how to use the machine properly. Mine tested fine, but was actually not fine. Replacing the starter was the answer. I spent days searching for the problem too...figuring the test was correct and the starter was fine.
