Hi its a common issues with the starters on the jeeps ..if you can reach it remove and clean the solenoid control wire at the starter if that does not work then you need to replace the starter it has a dead spot in the armature

in fuse boxes check for a black spot in all fuses then in box behind first one open up and rap on black square there says start in box cover 33 tap with wrench relay stuck should turn over, if not replace it. mine then turned starter. ok since but have new one in glove box. insurance! fugo

To all Commander and grand Cherokee owners who turn the key on only get click click, it is not the starter, or alternator if your battery has 12.5 volts or more (meaning charged) your problem is a weak or bad 40 amp fuse identified as IGNITION / STARTER That is all that is wrong. It is a square fuse/ relay and located in engine compartment. Push two little tabs on door to open access to fuses and relays. Under the door is a pictorial displaying location of each, pull and replace ignition starter fuse 40A. It is located in fuse box closest to the firewall
