need help!!!!!!
i have a 2005 grand cherokee limited with a 4.7l v8. i am recently converting back from a hemi swap gone bad. i now have the new 4.7l out of another 2005 grand cherokee in and when i try and turn it over i just get a click from the starter. and it turns the flywheel wheel about an inch and the fuel pump is getting power cause it is getting fuel to the engine. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED ITS BEEN DOWN FOR 11 MONTHS........................................

if the battery has been down for 11 months then start there.
next starter relay then starter.

brand new battery, just put it a brand new starter couple hours ago, checked all fuses in the box, than i put a 13/16 socket on the crank and turned it all the way around. the starter clicks than turns the fan and belt a couple inches and quits. does this everytime i try and turn it over. do u think it could be bad grounds on the block?? or ecu problems?? thanks guys for the help been a stressful year.

Re: need help!!!!!!
what kind of pcm is in it? Your old pcm or the one from the vehicle that this engine came from?

Re: need help!!!!!!
My old one. When i bought the new used 4.7 it was just the block heads and intake. So i swapped the water pump, fan assembly, alternator, a/c condensor, air intake, wire harness, and pcm from the old motor.

Re: need help!!!!!!
you think i should just take the old pcm into jeep and have them test it and reflash it.

Re: need help!!!!!!
yes...but I would double check all the connections FIRST. When we did the motor swap on little unconnected sensor kept throwing codes. we missed it 3x.....

Re: need help!!!!!!
I'm trying to understand mate. Is the starter struggling to turn the engine or is the starter disengaging?
