I bought a 95 jeep se model wrangler about a week ago. I haven't ha any problems till I came out of work today and the sucker wouldn't start. The motor turns but it won't fire. Only thing I can't think of is the fuel pump or fuel system. What is the easiest way to secure my assumption? Thanks.
if you turn the key to "on" do you hear the fuel pump kick on right away? If not, leave the key on and wait a few minutes. Mine took between 1 minute and 20 minutes depending on the day. If you leave it sit with the key on and eventually the fuel pump growls and the check engine light comes on, it will then start. But, your ECM (Electronic control module/computer) is bad.
Just another thing to rule out while narrowing it down. What I explained is a signature symptom of the computer.
So to anyone that has read this.... If any of this sounds familiar and you can't figure it out, check the plug wires. I changed a fuel pump messed with the ECM and a couple other this when in fact the plug had been grounded out by corrosion and would not send power to the pump.
