Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Try turning the key and there are a few quick clicking noises. The dashboard indicator lights flash twice quickly and then die. Nothing! This time the FOB won't even unlock the doors. This began in March of 2011. First garage replaced the ignition switch as the issue. A week later dealership #1 replaced the module (even though I thought it might be the starter). Two weeks later it let me sit again and this time they said it was the starter. They placed that! A few months later it happened again. Dealership #2 had the vehicle for 4 days and couldn't diagnose the issue but it has been fine till today. Any ideas? This jeep only has 34,000 miles on it and is well maintained!
Change the wires that go to the starter i had the same problem fixed now with no problems

check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

SOURCE: Jeep Cherokee starting issue
On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate

I'm having the same problem. Happened last summer (two new starters) and just last week. Last summer they replaced a leaking seal in a line to the transmission and said the fluid was low. The other day I noticed (before it was towed) that the transmission cooler line was very wet, and it was wet under the passenger side of the engine. Could it be that the fluid leaks out enough so that when I drive it a half-mile, the fluid gets warm enough to kick in the overtemp sensor, not letting the car start? Had no probs over the winter when it was cold. Took it out the first hot day In April and and the same old problem is back. I'll let you know how it turns out.
