1998 jeep cheeroke starter problem
Yes I believe that would fix the problem. It is under the hood mounted in the "power distribution box"
If this by slight chance doesn't work which I do think will work; Then you can try
The HEI system, used on 2.5L, 2.8L and 4.0L engines, is a
pulse-triggered, transistorized controlled, inductive discharge
ignition system. The entire HEI system (except for the ignition coil on
fuel injected engines) is contained within the distributor cap.
distributor, in addition to housing the mechanical and vacuum advance
mechanisms, contains the electronic control module, and the magnetic
triggering device. The magnetic pick-up assembly contains a permanent
magnet, a pole piece with internal teeth, and a pick-up coil (not to be
confused with the ignition coil).
In the HEI system, as in other
electronic ignition systems, the breaker points have been replaced with
an electronic switch-a transistor-which is located within the control
module. This switching transistor performs the same function the points
did in an conventional ignition system. It simply turns coil primary
current on and off at the correct time. Essentially then, electronic
and conventional ignition systems operate on the same principle.
module which houses the switching transistor is controlled (turned on
and off) by a magnetically generated impulse induced in the pick-up
coil. When the teeth of the rotating timer align with the teeth of the
pole piece, the induced voltage in the pick-up coil signals the
electronic module to open the coil primary circuit. The primary current
then decreases, and a high voltage is induced in the ignition coil
secondary windings which is then directed through the rotor and high
voltage leads (spark plug wires) to fire the spark plugs.
In essence then, the pick-up coil modu
