Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hello Faye Sims,
Whatever you are looking for... it is big & common
to a lot of circuits... My best advise when starting
to trouble-shoot MULTIPLE ISSUES is a start
at the MAIN BATTERY & GROUND connections.
(unless your CHEROKEE has recently been flooded).
Start at your battery posts and move METHODICALLY
through your main body (ground) & Starter cables
(battery) and make sure the connections are clean
Look for corrosion, breaks or discoloration of insulation or any signs of heat... Unless you are in a terrible rush... Shop for best prices from reputable sources (Like: Rockauto, Napa,
even eBay & AMAZON (etc.))... also such products as
CONTACT CLEANER, NALOX/NoCo & battery washers
(in my opinion... are a MUST on AUTO-BATTERY posts).
Amazon com Battery Anti Corrosion Washers 2 Red 2 Black Automotive
Quality High IMPEDANCE (or No Contact) VOLTAGE
TESTERS... will protect existing circuits while attempting to find faults... (without FEAR of triggering EXPLODING AIR BAGS
(in my opinion))... Or destroying semiconductors w/ spark...
Klein Tools NCVT 2 Dual Range Non Contact Voltage Tester Amazon com
Amazon battery cable
Amazon com Deka 00297 Positive Battery Cable Automotive
Rockauto battery cable (less $, 3 years, 36000 miles)
Finally... Check out buying A FUSE at your local parts store
(abusive & egregious $$$$ (know your FUSE TYPES))
Amazon com Bussmann NO 44 ATC Blade Fuse Tester Puller Kit Automotive
Comment me back... Spent a lifetime doing this...

Hope this helps

This seems to be the affects of a bad dinamo charging your battery . If you take a appart the dinamo you should fine a part called in mechanic terms "the bones" they look like 2 black magnets with a wire coming out of them . They are not expencive and you should not change your dinamo untill you try this first a car dinamo is very expencive .

Sounds like an electrical problem; look for loose, corroded or kinked/broken wires. The problem is most likely in the dash wiring/connections and seems to be pretty common in jeeps.

you have a short in your electrical systemwhich could be fatal. first,batterycables are clean and tight. second, check for loose wires at the starter. third,check each and every fuse,make sure the correct amps are on the fuse. check your light switch. if these attempts fail, then take to an electronics tech.

the alternator is supposed to put out at least 14 to 14.3 volts when running, at least 13 volts at battery when it is off. if the battery voltage while running is 11.9, then the regulater in alternater is bad.

I also had such a problem, there were 2 broken wires in the driver side door wire boot, where the hinge is. was very lucky to find it.
