93 yj not starting and 4wd not engaging fixed, thanks

I had trouble with 93 yj not starting. had spark but seemed to be no fuel. the only codes were 11,33, and 55. I saw on here that the fuel pump should run about 2 seconds when key comes on and it was not. Also read that sometimes you have to cycle the key on and off OR just leave the key on for a few minutes and it would start running the pump.
I went out after reading all that and left key on for about two minutes, then cycled off and on and the fuel pump came on. I cycled the pump about 4 or 5 times to build pressure on the fuel rail, came up to about 40 psi, and it started right up.
I wonder if that has been an issue in the past, when we would not run the jeep for months at a time and when we would start it, the engine would just turn over for a long time before starting.

Also on a separate issue the 4wd would not engage. I found the vacuum motor shaft was struck, took it apart and cleaned and regreased. Also found the vacuum connector had a hole rubbed in it from the top. The hole, oddly enough, was caused by the rubber cover that is supposed to be a splash guard for the vacuum motor. The connector "rubs" right up next to the guard.

Seems to be all good now.
Thanks for the great posts on this site.

check you fuel pump relay and make sure the prongs are clean.
and you might get lucky and never have the problem again.

the 4x4 frt diff problem is a very easy and free fix . just do the bypass and be done with it.
i have had no problems with mine and have lost no mpg either.

here is a link to read and pics to see how.

Actually it is all good now.

I looked at doing the bypass before but decided to keep it stock.
