    Just joined this forum and this is my first post here due to my desperation :( I'm currently having issues starting my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that are UNRELATED to battery issues. Nothing happens (no click(s), other noise) when I move the key to the start position in the ignition and nothing I...

    Does anyone know if turning the key on a 2014+ JK is a good old fashioned direct circuit to the starter solenoid, or is it computer controlled like the new JLs? I’m looking at 2013-2018 JKUs and noticed there’s a delay when turning the key between hitting the ignition position on the key...

    I have a 2011 JK. I have owned it for 6 years and every year when the temp drops under 50 degrees, my starter makes a horrible grinding sound. It sounds like the Bendix gear isn't completely engaging with the flywheel. It will grind and then start fine. It starts great the rest of the day. I...

    Hey all, my 2016 unlimited has been great with no issues. Hasn’t had any problems starting but today i went out to run an errand and it started just fine, ran into the store and came back 10 minutes later and it wouldn’t crank. All my lights were fine, stereo started, ac started but the engine...

    Two weeks ago the car sat for about 3 days and wouldn't turn over, but did after two or 3 tries. Has started okay since, with the exception of this (video link below). Only happens on the first start of the day, all others are normal. This morning started with quick cranks then I let the car sit...

    I have to replace the starter on my 2013 JK Rubicon Unlimited 3.6 Auto. The planetary gear inside the starter has disintegrated! Are there any variations in starter design that I should be aware of, or can I buy an aftermarket unit*listed for 'Jeep Wrangler 3.6L 2012-2016'?

    Hey Jeep owners, so I’m completely stumped! Literally one day out of the clear blue sky, my Jeep stopped starting. Nothing outta the ordinary happened, just one morning it wouldn’t start. The ignition switch is not getting any power. I checked everything possible, even replaced some fuses just...

    Hello all. I am currently having problems with getting my Jeep to start. I have talked to about six different people and four of them used to be professional mechanics. Unfortunately, this one seems to have them all miffed. The problem. My starter decided to go out on me. No big deal it was a...

    Hi all, I am having troubles with starting my JK. I went to start it yesterday and it started but seemed like it killed itself right away, it did this 3 times in a row then won't even try to turn over when I turn the key. After checking fuses and relays I decided to try and see if my remote...

    Hello All, My 2011 Wrangler Unlimited just crested the 100k mile mark. As it gets older I want to make sure it gets ample time to warm up before the short drives I have to make in the winter. I am looking to install an aftermarket remote start (preferably on my own - I have some experience...

    About 3 weeks ago, my nephew was playing in my Jeep (he's obsessed with it) It was parked in the driveway after we drove home for about 10 minutes. Went to start it up to head home and it did not start. All dash lights came on and nothing. Turned key back to off position, tried to start again...

    Hey guys Question regarding my 15 jk Willys. Have had a hesitant crank for about 6 months now. Vehicle will randomly die on me also. Sometimes I'll get in the vehicle, key in, lights turn on, go to crank and just get a repetitive click. It will sit for a few hours then it will start up just...

    I have a 1987 YJ that I just recently performed a transmission swap on. BA10 to AX15. This required a new flywheel and hence a new starter to accommodate the new trans. Problem is that the 1987 YJ has an old style, 4 post solenoid mounted to the firewall and a no-solenoid (1 wire) starter...

    I have a 97 4L TJ. I have been having an issue for a few days where the 1st time I crank the starter it makes a grinding noise, but the second time it starts right up. Yesterday, I drove to work, shut it off and then immediately tried to start it again. As soon as I cranked it, it lost all...

    I know this should be an easy job but does anyone know the trick to breaking the top bolt loose? I have the stubby ratchet but there is so little room I can't get enough grip/leverage to loosen the bolt.

    I bought my 2000 Sahara about a month ago and have loved every minute since. This last weekend I mounted a winch and must have killed my battery testing it. When I went to start her (my jeep) up, I couldn't even get her to try and turn over. Even with jumper cables I could only get a start with...

    Hey gang, I was wiping my starter off after some work and the black tube (vent/drain?) broke off. The tube on lower left side of the unit on the left in the pic below. Is this piece necessary?

    My starter decided to go out today, so I have been trying to find something to replace it. The problem I have ran into is every store near me which includes NAPA, O'reillys, Autozone, and Advanced Autoparts, only sell remanufactured. I would prefer to buy new but the only new starters I have...
