Question about 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

3 Answers

My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start. When you turn the key nothing happens, no clicking, nothing, but all of the lights, radio, power seats, windows etc. work fine. The Transmission over temp message flashes quickly when you turn the key to off, but the temp on the guage never comes close to being high. The battery is fine and I've checked all of the connections. This has happened three times now and I just leave it for a few hours and it starts right up. Anyone know what this could be?

My man I know your pain... I have the exact same problem happening to me now... same make, year and model... I called a mechanic buddy of mine and he said I might have a "flat point" on my starter and if so this might happen intermittently... he suggested a replacement of the starter... But I think the other suggestion is also quite valid so I going to have my friend do both...

Me too first time was bad starter wire connection, it was rusted. That worked almost for a year, this time bad Ignition Switch. Same exact issue's you are all having. Jeep seems great so far no issues, it had just hit 88,000 when it did it this time. The part is 40 bucks and looks quite easy to change out-they did charge me 200.00 in labor tho. I would change it myself or someone a little handy can change it very easily-and keep that labor cost cash in ur pocket!!

SOURCE: 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't CRANK - battery is fine.

What is the current status? I purchased a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee from CarMax in December, 2009. The first time it wouldn't start was the beginning of March. The dealership could not duplicate the issue. Happened again a month later, they said it was the wireless remote module and that was replaced. Couple months later, happened again. They said it was the key module. That was replaced. Friday night, happened again. I'm waiting for a tow truck Monday morning. Does anyone know the real underlying issue and the resolution?

When you turn key nothing happens,lights,horn,radio works


check the battery conections for tightness then check continuaty to starter motor.. if power is getting to starter , could be starter. however if any of the dash lights go dim when turning key , suspect the battery.

I drove the Jeep home with no problems. This morning, it won't start -- no power at all, no radio, light, power lock, power window ... nothing works but I keep on hearing a fast "tick, tick, tick" sound...


Your battery is low or has weak cell. I recommend jump starting vehicle. If it jump starts then replace the battery. If
battery warning light is illuminated on dash may have charging
system concern.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherookee sometimes won't start


This could be something simple. Your starter draws far more power than anything except for the a/c clutch (not in play here) Since all accessories are functioning, it's likely that the battery terminals are oxidized. A high-draw item will actually break the connection temporarily. This condition will also change with humidity and temperature. Remove them and use a small wire brush or sandpaper to clean the battery posts and the inside of the connectors on the wires themselves. If you have done this and still have a problem, then you should start looking for other larger problems.
Good luck

I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.
