Jeep Grand Cherokee owners have reported 8 problems associated with starter solenoid (under the electrical system category).
#1 - Starter Solenoid problem of the 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The car is a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My vehicle tolled to armory garage, because at that time, insurance had to keep sending someone to come and restart the vehicle. Or it will start but then turn around and stall later. After paying $1300 plus to armory garage, they only charged me for diagnosis and fixing problems with a battery being overdrawn. They claim to have replaced the bcm computer. However, after paying all that money I still have problems with my vehicle. I have replaced, starter, alternator, battery, computer module with armory garage, ignition coil fixed. All I keep getting is that the emissions is the problem because it states big and small leak. However, even today it has not been fixed. I have spent closed to over $3500 on my vehicle to get it running and it still stalls after all the above have been replaced. P0442, p0455, p0351, are the last codes to the vehicle. However, an evap purse solenoid has been fixed as well. All this money and still have problems with the vehicle stalling and running but turns off right in the middle of driving. This starter solenoid problem happened on Wednesday, May. 9, 2012.

#2 - Starter Solenoid problem of the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The car was a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1J4GR48K95_. When turning the ignition key to the start position, you hear 1 "click" but the vehicle does not start. This is an intermittent event that seems to come and go every few months. When it happens, I have to leave the key in the on position for about 1 - 2 minutes, then attempt to start the engine again. I had previously had my vehicle serviced at the dealership for this problem, but since it is so random, the service personnel could not recreate the event. I even advised them that other owners, registering this same complaint, pointed to corroded solenoid wires as being the culprit. However, the service department had me purchase a new battery last year. This did not fix the condition which continues periodically to this very day. Unfortunately, the car has been unable to start at a few times when the surroundings were less than totally safe. This starter solenoid problem happened on Friday, April 1, 2011.. Read more...

The car involved was a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1J8GR48K07_. Car would not start. It was towed to the dealership which had to replace the starter solenoid wire. The service department informed me this was a know design defect, but since I was just out of warranty (37k) I would have to cover the cost. If this is a know problem, why isn't it fixed.

#5 - Starter Solenoid problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle is a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1J8HR68217_. In may 2008, 15308 mi on Jeep, slowing for red light, dies, all dash lights com on, no power to steer, no wipers, etc. ; starts back on it's own. Took to dealer, no code, no re-act; has happened intermittent since-safety issue in traffic. Now tranny problem, started sept. 2010, 37,600 mi, code 750, changed solenoid pk in tranny, now code for low pressure send circuit, drives a few miles then goes and stays in 4th gear; 3 months and still not drivable. Need recall for esm and tbs before someone gets killed. Chrysler should stand behind their products & be responsible for design and components. This is very disheartening since both my husband and I own a small biz and are struggling just to keep the doors open and now add the expense of diagnosing Chrysler's problem is just too much! I warranty my work, wear & tear considered, as should Chrysler before someone is hurt or worse- dies trying to get to out of traffic. This problem occurred on Saturday, September 18, 2010.
#6 - Starter Solenoid problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. Black plastic connector that connects yellow wire to starter solenoid comes loose and/or gets dirty or corroded causing it not to make contact and the vehicle will sometimes not start. I've have seen on various online forums with people having this exact same problem. Dealerships always want to replace starter and other parts when it is simply this poor connection thats the problem. Chrysler denies it's a problem and dealer mechanics will not put on a better connector. They just like to keep charging people for new starters and other parts when they don't need them. This loose connection also could also cause a fire, it is an obvious flaw in design and a fire could cause serious injury or death to someone that doesn't realize the connection is bad. This problem occurred on Sun., Apr. 3, 2011.

#8 - Starter Solenoid problem of the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle was a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both tail light assemblies stopped working and was cited by a police officer. Replacement was ~$500. Rear lift gate lock actuator is broken, so cannot open lift gate. Right rear door lock will not allow opening from inside. Shift sensor/solenoid has gone bad twice leading to problems with shifting from gears (revs really high before shifting). Rotors are constantly becoming warped and brakes have to be readjusted. Left blinker no longer works and to fix it, the dealership told me they have to replace this entire engine block for about $800. Power window lock no longer works. Other than that, car runs great :). This starter solenoid problem happened on Sunday, January 9, 2005.
