First of all,..sorry if I posted in wrong forum, I'm not familiar with this site,(moderator please move to appropiate forum if need be).
A friend of mine owns a 1995 Wrangler,..2.5 liter, and it has been sitting for a few years in her garage. She asked me to help her get it up and running again,..so I charged the battery,..added some fresh gas to the tank,..and after a few seconds of cranking it fired right up and runs good. I drove it around her back lot for a few minutes...clutch and trans and everything works just fine.
The next morning, the battery was dead, wouldn't hold a charge, so I replaced the battery.
Here's the problem. After replacing the battery, it won't start,..getting no fuel. It will start with a little squirt of starting fluid, then die.What the heck happened, did I short something out? The key was in the off position when I replaced the battery. I have checked all the fuses in the fuse/relay box directly in front of the battery, they are all good. I assume one of those relays is the fuel pump relay, but none are marked, and they all have the same number on them. Can someone tell me how to identify which one is the fuel pump relay?
Also,..now the fuel gauge is pegged all the way to above full..even with the key off..does that mean the fuel pump itself is bad? Can someone please advise as to what my next step should be? Thanks to anyone who can help.
