Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Will not start

I drove my 98 into the yard last night and shut it off. This morning when I went out to start it, it will not start. It turns over and just about when you let off the key it sounds like it tries to start. The second time I tried to start it I could smell gas. It is rainy, and very damp outside today, where it is sitting. Is it possible something has gotten wet? It has always started fine. It has plenty of gas in it.

You need to check for spark. You could have got water into your ignition coil or distributor cap area and cause it not to spark. It could also be a problem with a crankshaft position sensor.Another possiblity is the asd relay or Autoshutdown relay bad. that realy is in your fuse box underhood. Hope this helps.

Security. Turn the key to run. Let it sit for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. Then try to start. Do this three times for a relearn. Don't try to start.

Ignition feed fuse 16 blows when i turn on the key


Hi,
You have a 'short circuit' in the system or a bad ground somewhere. Go online and search on the Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler forums for this issue. I've read about myself but don't recall the common cause.
