TJ Electrical problems

I have a 2001 4.0 5 speed and I am having trouble getting it running. When I turn the key on I hear the fuel pump and all the exterior and interior lights are working. I get lights on the radio and the message center lights in the gauge cluster. . . but no odometer lights no gauge lights and no start. The only code the computer is showing is a battery temp code which is probably from when i took the battery out. Any info would be helpful

First check your fuses. If memory serves me the run fuse also powers the cluster.

If not, is the engine turning over or doing nothing at all?

Let us know as that would be two very different sets of things to look at.

No crank at all. just lights coming on and a fuel pump hum. Swapped in a new battery to make sure that wasn't an issue, but still nothing. The key security light is popping on then off sometimes but I hope that's just a start up check and not a SKIM issue

Check the ignition switch. Push start it with key on aka pop the clutch

Sounds like you've blown an ignition fuse. X2 on checking your fuses under the hood.

Check your battery terminals/wires. Take 'em apart, if possible, clean, reassemble.
Sounds like your getting voltage, just not a lot of current.

Can you roll start it? Knowing that will help rule a lot of stuff out.
