i just pulled my airbag off my steering wheel to make sure the plug was still in becase my light would come on then if i hit the horn would go out... So anyways, i put it back on and tried starting the jeep.... no start, just cranking. I just drove 300 mile yesterday and drove around today this afternoon and now it wont start? Could my fuel pump relay have quit, or what should I start checking? any help would be great, its my dd
what should I be hearing? when it cranks it doesnt sound like its getting fuel... i can tell that much. Can you usually hear the pump prime? never took notice. i checked all of the fuses and they are good, pulled them all and checked with a meeter.
well i checked, and no spark. i pulled the cap off the rotor and there was a good bit of dirt in there and looking kinda worn... also, when i first turn the key and all of the lights come up, i get a light in the upper left hand corner that has a key with a slash through it... is that normal?
i did hear the fuel pump when i had my dad turn the key and i was outside of the jeep. Like i said, no spark though... Could easily be somethin in my column, i mean my key does come out while im driving...
ok, then that aint it. I checked the voltage at my tps sensor and its getting 5 volts with the key on, so that means the crank sensor is ok because its letting voltage to the tps sensor... maby ill shoot for a cap and rotor and wires since it needs done anyway...
still no luck. I replaced the rotor cap, rotor button and wires, started for a second then shut off and still wont start. all the wires are on right... I double checked with the manual... this is frustrating
well the jeep sat for two days... it started. I drove it around the block and then sprayd water over the hood while it was running.... it started to spit and sputter... then shut off. definitly electrical getting wet. the only thing i saw water hit was the computer....
From what you describe you may have a bad ignition switch. When they go bad a lot of puzzling electrical issues come up including dash light issues, etc. as well as starting issues. And they do go bad.
