Grand Cherokee: dog disconnected me! Any way...I

Customer Question

Hi dog disconnected me! Any way...I have a 2004 grand Cherokee . It wouldn't turn over, so I replaced the starter, and it's doing the same thing!! Not just a click, but a very rapid loud clicking

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
A rapid clicking from the starter that happens while the key is being held in the crank position is caused by very low voltage available to the starter. The problem may be a cable or connection issue either with the starter positve feed or engine ground, but the battery itself would be most likely.
If the cables and connections have been ruled out then I would recommend trying a jump start (not always reliable), swapping in a known good battery, or having this battery load tested. Most big chain parts stores such as Autozone and even Wal-Mart will load test batteries for free.
