2006 Jeep Commander

Asked by Aug 29, 2015 at 02:51 AM about the 2006 Jeep Commander Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Jeep Commander that
has been parked for a few days; was
working perfectly until today. It
wouldn't/ won't start. It will click but
not turn over to crank. Battery is
new. I had the starter replaced,
however, it still won't start. I'm so
lost, confused, and hurt as I've only
had this truck about a month. Not
sure what else it could be and I just
spent all my savings moving to a
new city where I don't know anyone.
Any suggestions please so I'll know
what I'm looking at on repair costs.
Thanks!

A loose connection from the battey to the starter, a bad ground...

Try this: turn on the headlights, if they are nice and bright great if not recharge the battery, next with the headlights still on try to crank over the engine, do the headlights go out, if they do then you have a bad connection, could be something simple as a dirty battery cable, or a loose ground cable at the block, if they don't got out and you still get the click, you need to check for battery power at the starter and at the solenoids small wire when you turn the key to crank, if everything checks good, then lightly tap on the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position if it cranks over then your new starter has an internal problem.
