Does Jeep Cherokee Have an Alternator?
It's a critical part of the SUV's charging system, actually. Without one, your Cherokee couldn't convert mechanical energy -- namely, the movement of parts -- into electrical energy, or electricity. In other words, the car battery couldn't charge, and the electrical systems couldn't run. We're talking the power windows, the lights on the dashboard, the windshield wipers, power steering, electronics -- none of it. If you're looking to order a replacement online, you've come to the right place for it.
How Long Does the Alternator Last on a Cherokee?
Anywhere from 80,00 to 150,000 miles -- 7 or 8 years, usually. Those we sell are genuine Mopar, up to the same top standards of quality -- the kind you're used to from Jeep. You can buy with confidence.
What are the Symptoms a Cherokee Alternator's Bad?
You'll see battery and alternator warning lights on the dash, and your lighting will start malfunctioning. Electronics will start behaving erratically, and the engine will squeak. You might also end up with a dead battery, smell burning under the hood, around the battery or alternator, or notice alternator fluid leaks. The causes are usually an overtightened belt, installing the wrong accessories, jump-starting wrong, or parts that have just plain worn out.
Notice these, and you'll want to run an inspection, test the charging system and replace whatever parts are the trouble, if not the alternator itself. We carry plenty of inexpensive options, cost priced below MSRP, some discounted pretty steeply.
How Much Does it Cost to Replace the Alternator in a Jeep Cherokee?
On average, anywhere from $650 to $900. That includes labor. Alternators themselves can make up $500 to $700 of that. Buy from us, though, and not only will you save money. You'll also get manufacturer warranty coverage -- peace of mind you made the right investment.
