Just won't start
Went out to start my 2006 grand cherokee with a 5.7L. but it won't start . got some jumper cables and jump started it. a few days went by had the same problem again
jump started it all is good ran for a few days went to pick daughter up from work
shut jeep off while waiting. went to start jeep and nothing. called wife to jump start jeep all is good got it home parked it in the garage. and it hasn't ran since. we have replaced the battery and the starter. the original starter tested bad at o'rielly so i bought a new one installed it but still nothing. i can here the starter firing but thats all it does

Re: Just won't start
Does it have a slow turning noise? check alternator to see if it is charging properly and then check if anything is draining the battery. On my car my capacitor was broken and draining the battery at 2amps current draw. Everymorning i would go out to my car and it would be dead but once it started it would be fine.

Alternator not charging the battery? Since you can jump it fairly easy it doesent sound like a problem with your new battery.

Alternator, ignition switch, battery (just because its new doesnt mean it works)
