Jeep wrangler won't start

If you turn on the key to start you get no response. if you put the car in neutral, it is a standard, and turn the key on you can jump start it at the solenoid with a screwdriver.

Find the neutral sefety switch and 99% chance, you have found the problem. generally on stickshift cars, the switch is above the clutch pedal, not on the transmission.

Where is the neutral safety switch located on my 2008 Jeep wrangler?


Sounds like you're starting at the expensive end and working backwards! First, check your battery, make sure it has a good charge. Second step is the starter solenoid. Some designs have external solenoids, some are internal. Third is the starter itself. Once you are sure all that stuff is good, THEN it's time to start looking for the neutral safety switch.

The check engine light is meaningless when the engine is not running.

What are the wire colors of the neutral safety switch on a 2000 Caravan 3.0 liter with a 4-speed automatic transmission.


Brown wire with yellow tracer shows to be wire color. You can always jump the starter to get it to crank, but, that doesn't mean it will start. In the past I have been lucky, different vehicle, I put the key in on position, jumped the starter relay, the vehicle started, I managed to get it home.
When testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. There are safety issues, safety is your responsibility. You don't want the vehicle to move when your working on it.
You realize if you bypass anything, it may start in any gear, if it does it will run over you or one of the kids, anything that gets in the way. Again, safety for everybody is your responsibility.

Key stuck, will not start unless i jump it


Are you sure the battery is ok, sounds like a low battery voltage problem. You can have the battery tested for free at any of the discount auto parts stores like Autozone for instance.

Try starting the vehicle in Neutral. If it starts and jumps from the solenoid mounted on the firewall then there is either a circuit break or the neutral safety switch is faulty or the cable is maladjusted
