Angry 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner

New guy - I found Jeep Garage because I was looking for a fix for an Electrical Problem on my Grand Cherokee. Still looking and hoping to get some feedback. Pulled into Driveway last night - turned the key off, but needed to move the vehicle just a little bit more and when I went to start it again - No Electrical Power - NADA - CAr is deader than a doornail. I read online to remove negative battery cable then let it sit for a few minutes the reattach - did that but it didn't work - Any ideas ?

Re: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner

I found out the Positive Cable connection was corroded ( not even noticeable ) but by cleaning both terminals and both connectors - it started right up. The reason I knew it was the positive was because I had previously about 2 hours earlier cleaned and reconnected the negative but that didn't work so when I decided to remove both connectors and I reistalled the positive connection first then touched the negative connecto I heard a click aand that was it - all done ! Works great !
