Jeep Cherokee Sport

Why did the serpentine belt seize on my 94 Jeep Cherokee Sport. The Jeep would turn over and start to run and immediately the odor of burning rubber came up so i opened the hood and saw the belt still?

Frozen belt driver accessory Remove belt and try to spin each of the pulleys that belt connects to i.e. Water pump, P.s. pump. A/C compressor etc. to determine which has frozen. You can also check to see if you have it routed properly. In some cars you can fit the belt on more than one way. Check your belt diagram and see if you have it routed properly.
