My In-laws had to come take my family home, while I waited for a tow-truck. I continued to try for about a minute, and it finally started. I put it on a battery charger overnight. My mechanic tried to get the part from the internet, other dealers, other suppliers and from Jeep itself. When pulling off the oil filter, keep it upright common sense until you get it over a pan. As of now the Jeep is turning over fine and running at a good charge. If necessary repeat this procedure.
Here is where I break into this answer giant167. First the starter was replaced, then the wireless ignition module and lastly a shifter module but I am still having the problem. In Ocotber, I took the Jeep to the dealer and they could not figure out the problem becasue it started everytime they tried. They were not able to help me. Hopefully it solves the problem s.
Was unable to get the starter to crank over the engine. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness. First, they tell me it'll be fixed within an hour, or so.

That time I called Chrysler main customer service, I was only told, we are sorry, the age of the Jeep and past warranty. Since then my vehicle has been to the dealer 9 times. I towed the car from one Jeep service department to the other service department. Pull the driveshaft out of the back… The bulb must first be disconnected from the plug attached to its back. If you want your starter to last, make sure that you will inspect all its cables before taking your Jeep Grand Cherokee for a drive. He moved to front of his building, turned off and could not get it restarted.
I had just put in a new alternator but apparently it was bad. Of course, this morning, it started just fine. No codes showed on the computer and they could not get it to fail again. I donated that car to charity. Everyday when I get the Jeep to start I think it might be the last. Had anyone had any luck finding a solution? Every time I call I get a run around from these people at Chrysler Customer Service, this is unreal customer service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For a week, we extended our vacation in order to fix our car in two different repair shops. However, if its good condition is not properly maintained, your starter will not last for a long time.

Posted on May 16, 2011 fully charge that battery , the clicking you hear is the starter relay trying to supply power to the starter, with little luck,,, often a battery will seem charged and show 12 volts, but one cell could be dead and that would drop the necessary amps to be delivered to the starter to actually turn the car over. After replacing the battery I didn't experience the problem again for a few months, until last night. The second one, in 2005, Grand Cherokee. Thank you for your responses to my issue as well. It sounds like others have not been so lucky.
If everything goes dead after that first click, double check, clean and tighten both ends of both battery cables.

The first few weeks after the accident were really bad and took at least 10 turns of the key to get it to turn over.

The battery is fine and the solenoid clicks when key is turned but the starter motor doesn't crank. This is so the driveshaft goes back into the same position you took it from otherwise you may get a vibration.

I took it back to the jeep dealer, and again, they could not tell my why it locked-up becasue it was starting every time for them. Got stuck at a parking lot in pouring rain and lightning.
