Asked by Nov 12, 2012 at 09:45 AM about the 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was told my battery is to small could that be the problem?

2 Answers

No A too-small battery has nothing to do with ignition switch. And be sure you have all your documents in order if you ever get pulled over, any cop will demand a lot of explaining about why you have to use a screwdriver.

Thanks and i got the car from out of state thats how it was!!!!!!
