1989 wrangler -problems
1989 wrangler 4cyl 5 spd 4x4 stock - well bought it two weeks ago drove it twice store and back, buddys house and on the way back i broke down while driving home, my fuel pump wouldnt turn on by key, but it was a night so i had my lights on, when i would step on my brake lights it would turn my fuel pump on a little more and if i turned on my blinker it would get more power in sink with the blinker, but i thought my jeep was possesed, any way got it home, dumped a little fuel in the throattle body she fire right up then die so i figured no fuel to confirm the fuel pump replaced it, so put the new one in still wouldnt turn over by key, so ran a trip wire from battery so orange wire on fuel pump, turns the pump over and can get fuel to the throattle body and return lines but wont come into the TB, then i checked for spark, first was orange, then none replaced, the coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, iam on a budget so i can only buy a few things at a time, so i thought next it would either be the igntion constrol module or my computer and i can get them both for about a $225 but i wanted to go if i could over ride one of them or check them some how, any thing at all could help any for my first jeep oam not two impressed, iam mean the first ride was great but now nothin also replaced fuel relay checked all fuses and all grounds all good thanks again!!!!

ok i sounds maybe like the ignition switch could be the prob or maybe a wire shorting in their if u have the time i would go through make sure theirs no wires contacting and make sure the switch is sending a signal to the pump the ignition control module i don't think would do this but give it a look and try shining up all the connections
