2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, 120,000 mi, 4.7 V8 engine, 4x4. Will start fine when cold or cool, but intermittently won't start when engine is hot. Has been a problem for the past 25,000 mi. Turn the key and it is dead--no starter noise or click or anything. Mechanic has replaced starter and battery with no results. Only way to get it started is to do the following things simultaneously, after turning off the a/c: jiggle shift lever and shift lever release button, press on brake pedal, turn key. Sometimes takes half a dozen attempts before it will finally start right up. Battery does not appear fatigued. Seems like an electrical connection somewhere. Any ideas? Thank you.
have the same problem?
