    Hi there, I have a problem with my jeep. I put the key into the ignition and turn it to the second click and it has power (14.5v). Turn it to the third and nothing, the only thing that happens is the parking brake light comes on but the engine doesn't crank over. I was in a parking lot the...

    Yesterday morning I went to start my jeep (2008 JKU 3.8L) and all that I heard was one click and then the battery completely died - no lights, no power locks, nothing. I took the battery to my local auto parts store and they told me the battery is fine and shows a 90% charge so I took it back...

    My jeep recently started taking 2-3 seconds to actually start it turns over during this time. I've checked the battery it's good. Spark plugs and wires are are about a year old. Just replaced the alternator and that fixed it for a few days. Before I go out and buy it I was thinking that the...

    The car starts okay when it sits. not perfect, cranks 3-5 times, but starts normal. However, once I drive the car- especially on a hot day, it will not start once it parks and sits and then try to re-start. It cranks and cranks but will not start. However, if it sits long enough, especially a...

    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...

    I have a 2008 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. Intermittently I am unable to start the engine when I turn the key. If I turn the key so I can put the Jeep into "Drive" and then back into "Park", I am then able to start the engine. It is not a big deal since I know how to get around it, but it is...

    Just put a new ignition lock cylinder in 90 YJ. It is sticking like the old one and would not turn over motor. Hazard lights came on when I put battery cable back on but no other lights. Before replacing old cylinder was sticking.

    Drove all day find, have been having some issues with the right head light turing off and on and left tail light being dim.

    symptoms... stalling out at low RPM when gearing down then not being able to start it. Turns over at the starter but no fire. After 4 attempts at turning the key the battery losses a fair bit of power. I'm able to fire back up after I get a jump however is seems to be taking longer to when...

    I just got a 95 YJ and it started and ran fine until I didn't drive it for a couple days, then it started after cranking for a couple min. I didn't drive it at all for a week or two and it wouldn't start. I read on this forum to turn key on for 5 min and try and that worked and it ran and...

    So last night, my 98 Jeep TJ 4.0 ran fine. On my way back from school the check gauges light came on. The oil pressure gauge just went to zero. I pulled over, checked my oil, and it was fine. Didn't think anything of it, maybe just a bad wire somewhere that wouldn't affect anything. This...

    When the engine is cold, my Jeep starts right away, but after it warms up and say I go into the store for 10 minutes and come back to crank it, it takes a while to finally turn over, or I cut the switch all the way off and turn it back on and it will fire right up. A buddy of mine, told me it...
