Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Our 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee randomly won't start.

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!

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

SOURCE: 2007 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. TRANSMISSION OVER TEMP

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.

The code is throttle position sensor error,could be bad or just need reset.The other problem sounds like a bad ground,if you have a piece of wire close to the terminal wire size put it on the ground side and jump it to the block,or any metal surface while someone tries to start it,if that doesn't get it try smacking the starter with a screw driver nothing bigger than a ratchet to prevent damage also while someone else rolls it over,also instead of rolling it over all the way try just quick burst with the key let engine turn maybe once or twice and do this as quick as possible maybe five or ten times

Hello! I'll need the trouble code to fix your vehicle...Below is procedure with a code list...Guru...saailer

Remove the trim panels in front of the center console. Locate the engine computer attached to a floor-mounted bracket on the transmission tunnel between the console and the firewall.

  • Turn the diagnostic mode selector, located in a round opening on the side of the engine computer, until it stops. Observe the small red and green LED lights on the side of the computer next to the mode selector. They will flash to indicate the modes, with a pause between each mode. One quick flash is mode one, two quick flashes is mode two and so on. When the light flashes indicate mode three, quickly turn the mode selector counterclockwise until it stops. You have entered mode three diagnostics.

The red light flashes to indicate the "Tens" digit of the code and the green light flashes to indicate the "Ones" digit of the code. For example, if the red light flashes two times and the green light flashes seven times, this would indicate code 27.


    Turn the ignition key off for two minutes to exit diagnostics. The computer will automatically return to mode one for normal operation...

    I locked my doors this morning and a few hours later someone told me my car was clicking, i unlocked which wouldnt work with remote so i used key tried to start and nothing no power to anything use turn...


    The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

    My battery died and after replacing the battery nothing happens


    Did you mean there is NO sound from the starter? The question says there is now sound from the starter. If it is a quick clicking noise, the new battery needs to be charged. Try getting a jump start for it or returning the battery, it should have come charged already. Not a good sign, these things sometimes bought new come with bad cells.

    How do I reset the maintenance warning indicator at the dashboard ?


    Try this, it is the procedure for resetting the ASSIST computer on some Mercs 
    1...Turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock 2...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) TWICE within the space of 1 (one) second and turn the key to position No: 0 in the ignition / steering lock - release button 3...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) and turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock 
    That should do it....The service indicator will reset and an acoustic signal may briefly sound 
    Good Luck..Let me know if it works?
