Question about 1988 Jeep Wrangler
I recently bought an 88 wrangler, and I can't get it started. I put a new battery in it and replaced the starter. The lights work inside and out but when you turn the key nothing happens. I tried bypassing the solenoid with a jumper wire and still nothing. I would be happy to here any helpful suggestions. Thanks
Is this a manuel or automatic transmission? if its automatic try forcing the shift lever forward while trying to start, if its a manuel check the clutch pedal switch , if no luck with those check to see if the ignition switch is giving 12volts in the start position, if not then just put a momentary contact push button on the dash and put key on power to one side of the button and the other side to the small wire on the starter then you have yourself a push button start with the key on only so there are no accidents, please rate -jeff
