Every ignition system in a Jeep has a starter motor. Cherokee is hands down the best selling SUV of the past 30 years in the U.S. Chrysler has devoted millions of dollars to developing cutting-edge technologies in the light-duty vehicles market. Unfortunately, there are things that can and will go wrong with any model year sport utility vehicle. A used starter motor for a Jeep Grand Cherokee can be bought on this website.

How Jeep Ignition Systems Can Fail

Electricity flows through the battery terminal and is dispersed to various modules and sensors in late model SUVs. When the engine block is running, the battery is kept at a constant charge. The moment that a battery loses its charge, a shut down of the block can occur. People who try to restart a Cherokee find that it might not crank over and a persistent problem might occur.

4 Common Jeep Starter Problems

1. Bad solenoid terminal wire
2. Bad ignition switch
3. Defective wiring harness
4. Blown starter motor

It does not matter that a vehicle is brand new, preowned or recently service by a mechanic. Problems will eventually happen during the ownership of a Grand Cherokee SUV. It most cases, a starter is usually the culprit when an engine will not crank over. Some Jeep Grand Cherokee starter motor problems have turned out to be other issues. Things like a bad fuel pump relay switch, TPS and neutral safety switch being defective do cause a similar issue.

The 3.7-liter V6 and 4.7-liter V8 blocks are the most common to find in the Grand Cherokee trim version. While mid 2000 versions have been noted as being stable, there have been some recalls on fuel pumps and other portions of the electrical systems.

Replacement or Removal of an Ignition

For a person who does not mind DIY repairs, a removal of the starter assembly can be completed. A puller tool is usually required in order to remove the unit from the housing. Because of the regular wiring harness, it is relatively easy to install a working unit in place of one that has failed.
