2005 Jeep Grand Jerokee Limited. When turning over it just clicks. The battery is good. Message on the display comes up "Service Elec Brake System". Before I get a mechanic involved could you tell me what this could be? I would like to have a better idea before they try and confuse me and charge me a small fortune to fix this.

Do you
have the same problem?

Starter motor has failed. Have it verified at a shop.

How did you check the battery? With a load test? A poor connection @ the battery cable ends will do that. Let me know if you need to know how to test this
