Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Does not want to start sometimes. Becoming more more of a problem. Had my battery, starter and alternator checked all good. New starter 1 year ago. Most of the time will start with a jump(as soon as we hook it up), and sometimes will not start with a jump(even with charging for a bit) HELP!!!!
The first answer is correct how ever I have stuck that it's was corrosion between thermo fuses at battery terminal .. and another was break in main lead ??? Would get it to work by wriggling lead but took awhile to work it out.. also doubled up on Earth lead before I found it..

Need more info like when you say it won't start, Does it spin over? Is the engine turning over? If not, and a jump start does work, Then it is the Battery or the post connections. That's it! If it does not turn over with a jump then it will be the starter or ignition switch. If u can get to the starter, it can be forced on with a small jumper from the large post to the small stud (usually red)

I have a 2005 Jeep cherokee Laredo, and I have had this problem twice. Your key is some how not syncing with the factory alarm. The next time you put the key in the ignition and turn it look for a little flashing red dot (this dot should appear to the left beside the cooling/thermometer gauge) If this dot is flashing, it's indicating that the alarm is activated and until you deactivate it, you will NOT be able to crank your car. I had to have one of my co workers to drive me home to get my spare key and use it to disarm the alarm. I don't know what went wrong with my first key but for some reason it went bad, and as soon as I stuck the spare key in the ignition and turned it. The alarm was deactivated and the jeep cranked right up. I hope this will be of some help to you all that are having this problem, because I didn't know what was going on with my car when this first happened to me, and I know the feeling.

Here is what I suggest. Remove the battery from the vehicle and take it to an autoparts store. Most parts stores wll test the condition of the battery for free. They can tell you whether the battery is any good or not. Then, if you find the battery is bad and replace it, take the vehicle back to the autoparts store and have them check the alternator output. This is also a free service that most stores offer. That will give you peace of mind that both components are working properly. Really sorry for your trouble and best wishes.

SOURCE: Jeep Cherokee starting issue
On an intermittent start problem like this you may be having a starter solenoid issue or your wire on the starter from the key switch may be loose. Or you may have a corroded battery cable or the safety neutral switch may be going bad. Is it a automatic? If it were it would be the clutch safety switch going out. So do the simple things first. Clean cables like the first guy said if that does not fix it locate the starter and if you have jumper cables the next time it does it put the positive lead of the jumper cable on the Positive battery terminal and the other touch to the starter wire with the key in the run position where the big wire on the starter is, if you here it spin it means the starter motor is ok if it don't it is bad or the connection on the starter is loose. Also a bad battery cable could cause this from the battery to the starter next put a small wire into the end of the positive jumper cable and touch the S terminal on the starter if you here a solid clung it means the solenoid is good. So check the connections on the starter and tighten the starter bolts as they may have worked loose and don't have a good ground. So if you want more as stance just post on my question and I will hell p more and if this is more informative please rate
