Customer Question
Battery died, I bought...

Battery died, I bought new one & installed. Now it wont start, nothing, engine wont turn, no lights, gauges or power

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

All. When I try to start, there is nothing, no clicking sound, no cranking and no power to anything

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2000 grand cherokee

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

The battery died, so I had it jumped. Drove it & it died as I got to my destination. Tried to jump it again but it was dead. So I bought a new battery, put it in and tried to start it. But nothing, it's still dead

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats all i know

I don't have a meter, but everything worked fine before. I thought it may have been the alternator because I had to jump it. I am just trying to get it started so I can drive it to my mechanic
