Hey Guys I have a 1994 cherokee 4.0 auto that has an intermitten starting
problem. Sometimes When I turn the key it will do nothing not even click
I think I have traced the problem to the starter relay when it won't start
I can trip the relay and it will crank. The relay has constant power and
It has power when I turn the key, I am thinking it may be a ground problem. Has anyone had anything like this any help would be appricated
Thanks Mailman

Could well be a grounding issue. Check the grounding strap on your starter motor. If that looks okay try and reproduce the fault by wiggling the key in the ignition switch. This problem happened to me in my Porsche (1992 968)and it turned out to be the ignition switch. Good Luck, tracing elec problems can be a pain.

Had some similar problems on my 99XJ and it turned out to be the connection on the battery was a little bit funky. Not to be ruled out and if nothing else 'just because'- clean your terminals on your battery.
