1987 Jeep YJ Shutting down

When driving the vehicle shuts down and will not restart for about 30 seconds. The entire car shuts down including all electrical. I was told it was probably the Ignition Control Module. Where is it located? The manual shows it next to the battery but it's not there.

Ignition control module does not control everything electrical. check battery connections at both ends and do some testing to narrow it down a bit...could be a bad ignition switch also but test first!

2005 Pontiac Aztec has an intermittant engine stall while driveing on the highway. Engine will restart again within 20 to 30 seconds before vehicle comes to a stop. Battery light is only lamp that...


Next time this happens, reach up and try to turn the key like you are trying to start. It shouldn't engauge starter while in gear so don't worry about that. If it starts up when you do this, you most likely have a weak switch and the weight of your keys swinging may me shutting you down.

1987 Jeep YJ Hard to start hot


Sounds like a bad distributor control module. You blew-up your muffler because there was no spark.....lots of fuel in the exhaust....then an intremittent spark......BOOM!
Once the module cools off, it works again, because the crack in the circuit board re-connects....until it gets hot again, and opens the circuit........no more spark. Replace the module.

1987 Jeep YJ [Wrangler] so owner ship says''


Our Jeep Wrangler YJ's are equipped with a vacuum module on the front axle. It is used to engage the front axle when the transfercase is shifted into 4WD. Check the vacuum lines on the front axle to make sure they are connected. The passenger side axle shaft has a disconnect sleeve that is moved left and right by the vacuum.

Need to rewire entire jeep


If you want to rewire the vehicle, assuming that you will not be changing any systems, you can usually find complete new wiring harnesses from both the dealer and from aftermarket selllers like Quadratec and JC Witney.  Buying the complete wiring harnesses will be alot cheaper and less time consuming than trying to make them yourself.  These wire assemblies are just a plug and play deal, you disconnect a harness and replace it with the new one.  They may even include some instructions. If you need further assistance with custom wiring or diagnosis, I would recommend getting the service manual for the vehicle from the dealer or used ones from eBay ($30- $100).  The factory service manuals have complete wiring diagrams and schematics as well as full diagnostic information.  These service manuals are NOT like the ones found at your local parts store (Chilton or Haynes).  The factory service manuals are like complete blueprints for a car.
