Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler

Starter replacement instructions

95 wrangler se 2.5L manual trans 4x4

lights come on, does not respond when key turns, jump start failed, tried to pop clutch going down hill would not crank. battery is old, will remove withh starter and take both to shop. I need to know how to remove and install properly.

I figure that I need to disconnect the battery and unscrew a few bolts but I want to be sure I don't mess with anything else. I don't have a manual, and I'm short on cash so I'm doing this myself. Any help is appreciated. A diagram would be lovely if possible.

I do not have a diagram, but I think I can help. There will be 2 or 3 bolts that hold the starter on. Here are the steps, and its pretty easy so worry.
First, make sure you disconnect both wires from the battery. Always disconnect the negative cable first.

After the battery is disconnected, remove all the wires from the starter ensureing you remember where they go so that you hook them back up properly. If it is not simple or if it is something that I think I may not remember, I will lable them some how or write it down.

After the wires are removed remove the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block. Be careful when doing this, especially if you are laying under the starter as it may be heavier then you think and you do not want to drop the starter on your head as it will cause pain and perhaps a trip to the ER to get a couple stitches!

Some vehicles have small covers you may have to remove to get to the starter, but those are just a couple bolts if your Jeep has those, which I do not think it does.

Most parts stores have bettery testers and starter testers and can tell you if they are good or bad. Generally if you try to start the vehicle and all you get are a few lights, maybe a quiet "click" noise, I would check the battery before removing the starter, but if you want to knock them both out, by all means, go ahead. If the starter is bad you will usually hear some sort of "whining" noise, but not all the time.
Hope this helps!

What did I do this time! It wont start

Check the battery or try jumping it. You can also cross starter connections to turn it over(make sure it is in neutral if stick and wheels are chocked). May have burnt up a relay or the starter selonoid.

I havent been having any problems but when I try to start my jeep,it's not turning over at all.I have lights..I had the battery checked at a Parts store and it's good.It won't boost off but I can push it...

You should have a switch on the clutch pedal under the dash. easy to test,,,just jump across it and see if it starts (only with trans in neutral and your foot on the clutch because it can start in gear when jumped) You also have a relay in the power distribution center and a fuse as well. Relay test is simple...most of the relays are the same so just swap positions. You should also check to make sure power is getting to the starter...12v at main connection and 12v at the small connection with the key turned to the start position (again in neutral and at least have the brake on) If you have power at the starter, likely it has failed. Don't forget...ignition switch needs to be working as well.

Jeep will not start unless we pop the clutch. The lights work, but the engine won't turn over. When we get it started and drive, everything works fine and gauges look fine. Turn it off, won't start...

sounds like a starter take a test light touch it to the smaller stud on the starter have someone turn the key to start the car the test light should light with the key if starter does not work its bad . if the light does not light then its the ignition switch on the steering column = no power to starter

The starter is most likely the problem,tap on the starter lightly with a hammer while trying to start the engine,dont get run over doing this it will take two people,if the engine starts,the starter needs replacing.

95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

WOnt run over - battery good - can turn it over but jumping the starter

if the battery is good and you jump the starter she should run otherwise you may have a sensor issue, try to get a hold of a code reader and see if any codes have popped up..
