COMPONENTS INVOLVED TI THE STARTER CIRCUIT ARE : IGNITION SWITCH, STARTER RELAY IN THE POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX, NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH, [ ON LEFT SIDE OF THE TRANSMISSION ] & MOST LIKELY, A SOLENOID ON THE STARTER & THE STARTER. SOMETHING YOU CAN TRY. PUT THE TRANSMISSION IN PARK HOLD THE IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME, HAVE SOMEONE TAP ON THE STARTER WITH A MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF THE STARTER TURNS OR TRIES TO TURN IT EITHER LOW VOLTAGE DUE TO BAD OR DIRTY CONNECTIONS, OR A BAD BATTERY OR A BAD STARTER. ALSO, IF THE JEEP HAS AN AFTER MARKET ALARM, THERE IS A RELAY BEHIND THE DASH THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. ONE WIRE ,YELLOW WITH A DARK BLUE STRIPE, CONNECTED TO A SMALL BLACK RELAY THAT IS INTERRUPTING THE STARTER CIRCUIT. IF IT IS THERE, YOU WILL NEED TO RECONNECT THE YELLOW/DARK BLUE WIRE BACK TOGETHER. YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK THIS FIRST. GOOD LUCK.
CHECK ASD RELAY THAT IS AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN RELAY IN THE POWER DISTRIBUTION CENTER UNDER THE HOOD IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.IF ASD RELAY GOOD PROBLEM COULD BE CAMSHAFT SENSOR IN THE DISTRIBUTOR.TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY HAVE JEEP SCANNED FOR CAMSHAFT SENSOR AND CRANKSHAFT SENSOR FAULTS.
Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.
First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid. Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)
you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.
