wont start

Hey guys, i havent posted in a while but i got a problem. I had to leave my jeep at the lake last night cause it wouldnt start. We started it up pulled my little boat out of the water. Pulled it up a little and shut it off to pull the plug on the boat and put on the tie downs. When i went to start it wont even turn over. Jump it, nothing. Please help

Re: wont start

I try to eliminate the simple solutions first. The battery might be dead. When this happens on some of these Grand Cherokees it happens all at once and without warning. Someones it's difficult to jump start it after this as the security system kicks in and disables the vehicle so someone else cannot come by and steal it while your off getting a new battery. This was my experience with my old ZJ but it may not be the case with the WKs. Next I would check my battery connects to ensure they are tight. If this doesn't solve the problem then it might be starter related. Hope this helps.
