1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 192014

Grand Cherokee Laredo 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Replaced dead battery with new Battery September 19, 2014 after my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 would not start. Jeep started fine with no problems or hesitations till about 2 weeks ago. Brand New Battery but same issue. Would not start. Cranked once then clicking sound. lost all power to vehicle and ignition key was stuck and I couldn't remove it. Tried moving Floor shift several times but still couldn't remove the key. Gave up. Meanwhile, I managed to recharge battery enough to start. Key was able to be removed normally and my Jeep ran for a week. Now, I have the same issue again.

Recalls were performed on my Jeep. Those recalls were the Secondary Detent and the installation of a trailer hitch. Not aware of any other recalls regarding electrical.

Battery is Brand New (about a month or 2 old)
