I'm new to the forum, but through researching online saw that you guys would be the people to come to with any jeep related problems. I have an 05 Rubicon LJ with 85K miles, 4.0L, and an auto trans. Was driving it around all day over the weekend then after being parked for 30 minutes i jump back in it and it won't start.
I have since replaced the starter and battery both after Oreilly's told me both of them were bad. That didn't change anything. I can hear a click from the relay behind the glove box when i try to turn it over but that is it. I replaced that relay as well as the ASD and Starter relays under the hood. I have checked every wire, connection, fuse, etc on the jeep that i could find and still nothing has changed. When you try to crank it from the ingnition it is not sending current to the yellow wire attached to the S terminal on the starter. When i jump across the 30 and 87 terminals of the starter relay it will crank the motor but will not start, acts like it is not getting fuel (key was in the on position). I have tried moving the shifter around while trying to start it and that produced nothing..
I am planning to buy a new ignition switch this afternoon to try that, but i wanted to see if any of you may have any other suggestions? I'm stumped on this one... I have a hard time admitting defeat and taking my beloved jeep to a mechanic but am almost to that point if the ignition switch doesn't do it.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated!
