My yj wont start and when I try to bridge the two terminals on the starter with a screwdriver, it clicks once and then seems to blow a fuse. only no fuses are being blown. If I pull out anyone of the fuses and put it back, then I can bridge the gap again and it will only get one click out of it before going dead again. Any ideas? The battery is charged, new alternator, ecm, ignition switch.
Kind of strange bc it is a brand new starter. I took the starter out and jumped it directly with umper cables. It wouldn't do anything when I ooked the po cable to the terminal that goes to the battery. when i touched the pos cable to the terminal that goes to the starter (with the black cable running between) it wirrred
(lack of better word)
So i replaced the starter again and tried to cross the two terminals to get it to start. It worked this time. The engine cranked over pretty well but didn't start. The voltage meter in the jeep said it was getting about 12 or a bit less. Does the battery have to have 14 volts to start? I did all this with jumper cables hooked from my xj to the battery in the yj. thanks
I turned the key to the on position while jumping it. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it would run on the fluid but then cut out. I am wondering if it does that because it hasn't been run in six months or bceause there is a fuel deliver problem
