Ok I just bought this wrangler 5 days ago. It has a rebuilt motor in it and when I first test drove it it started up fine everytime. Well now that I got it home and let it sit over night or at least an hour, it takes forever to start. I searched past threads and found many suggestions. I tried changing spark plugs and still does it. I have finally noticed that when I turn the key to the on position before I crank it, the fuel pump doesn't come on along with the bulb check. After turning the key over and over it will finally come on and I hear the fuel pump working. I was wondering if anyone had the same problem or know what to do in this instence. I think either bad ground on fuel pump or short. Also how to get to fuel pump would be nice to know also, thank you

im new to jeeps so taking a shot at saying maybe a bad fuel pump relay or even an ignition module if it controls the fuel pump relay. Even a bad ground can cause weird crap to happen. Ofcourse after saying that itll probably be a fuel pump is bad.
