Question about 1983 Jeep CJ7
Its a 4.2 automatic 4x4
Lay a screwdriver across both leads on the solenoid (most likely located on the fender or firewall close to battery. Look up a pic of a solenoid online to be sure. Its black plastic with 2 studs) and see if it cranks. If so, the solenoid is bad... Cheap, easy fix. Not a special order part... Pretty much universal. Hope this helped! ***When you lay the screwdriver across the leads, it WILL spark some. But dont hold it long... Just long enough to bump the engine over a little, then replace it.
