Jeep Grand cheeroke Larado 4.6

Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 01:40 AM about the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving my battery Gage drops down and
check Gage's light beeps. Ultimately killing my
battery after a few miles. Tested alternator tested
good, replaced batte battery and terminals. Then
discovered that if I turn ignition off then back on
swiftly (even while driving in neutral ) that it
restarted and charged battery again.

That worked for about a day, then started jeep one
time and when I turned on lights everything shut
off. 0 power. But some times if I turn ignition over
all the dash lights and everything comes on, then if
I do it again everything go dim and clicking as if
battery's dead, but then again and once more it has
power. But never starts, nothing happens but a
faint humming sound when I try. So it seems like
most of the problems are happening with ignition,
but I don't know...

U replaced battery terminals, now check the rest of battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. Sounds like a poor ground connection
