Having problems with your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?
Squealing when start up, battery power goes down when turn on defrost
The squeeeel on startup is a loose serpentine belt.OR a faulty water pump.The voltage drop is a good indictator the belt tensioner may be playing up.The very 1st thing to look at would be the belt.When you put on the defrost,the alt.loads up and would add to the squeel.Hope this helps
