2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Starter
A 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee relies on its engine to move it and to generate power for all its different accessories, but something must get the engine going initially. The battery works along with a starter motor to get the engine going. The starter spins the engine just enough to start up the combustion process. Starter motors perform between 100,000 miles and 150,000 miles on average before they must be replaced, and AutoZone makes it simpler to find a matching Jeep Grand Cherokee 2002 starter replacement.
Signs You Have a Failing Car Starter
Before obtaining a Jeep Grand Cherokee starter, it's important to verify that your starter is bad. The most obvious sign is a vehicle that won't start properly. If your battery is in good health, but you only hear clicking or grinding noises and your engine won't start, you likely have a failing starter motor. You may also notice smoke, intermittent starting, and an engine that won't turn over at all. When you have these problems, it's time to find a replacement starter.
Replacing a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Starter
Use the AutoZone search tool to filter through starter motors based on the year, make, model, and engine size of your vehicle. Locate the right replacement part and then follow the replacement procedure.
Begin by lifting the hood of your vehicle and disconnecting the negative battery cable. Now, safely raise your vehicle up off the ground using ramps and wheel chocks or a jack and jack stands. Once raised, climb under your vehicle to locate your Jeep Grand Cherokee starter under the oil filter. Remove the power wire to the starter and unbolt the starter to drop it from your vehicle. Bolt the new starter in and attach the power wire to complete the part replacement. Lower your Jeep and connect the battery cable to enable your vehicle to start properly once again.
