If the engine is turning over and it still wont start try shooting a little starting fluid in the air cleaner to see if it will run .. if so your fuel pump is either bad or the fuel filter is getting dirty.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry

SOURCE: new starter new battery still wont start last

Very likely the new battery is defective - it happens. If you have a know good new battery, then also connect a jumper from the battery negative to the block just to be sure its not a defective or loose ground cable.

SOURCE: replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?

First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

When I turn key I get click but will not start


I single click typically indicates a bad starter solenoid and a new starter will generally fix the problem.

I series of rapid clicks when the key is held in the crank positon usually indicates a weak or dead battery. a new battery will usually solve this issue.

A bad connection at the battery can also cause a single click but typically the whole car will go dead for a brief period and then everything will again turn on. Cleaning the battery terminals will typically resolve this issue.

Why does battery go dead after 2 days


Make sure that a light in the trunk or glovebox or under the hood is not sticking in the on position causing a parasitic drain.

When stalled car will not start again for some time and battery seems dead. What is this?


that is because it is dead?
that key dead thing is called NO CRANK, not no start.
no car starts unless cranked, or push started or gravity started,
so its a NO Crank issue,
and the stalls, well if the battery drops below 10v the EFI system
stop working just like your lap top does, or CEL phone
and for same reasons.

most folks do a jumper cable crank next. like the AAA tow truck man does first, and for good reasons.
this proves what is wrong,
1: battery was dead (car cranks now)
2: starter dead. or key line dead, if not. cranking now.

my guess is its #1

if battery was dead, then it is
  • bad battery.
  • only discharged, so why not charge it?
  • or phantom drains, (over night parking battery dies)
  • or alternator is dead, (chargelight glowing? test alt.

Will not start


is this this s DIY question or ? just a request for wild guessing.
Ill assume its a real DIY. ? do tell.
what is a jumper box to house. ?????????????????
first off, you need to say,
it cranks robustly but does not start or not.
does it crank? if yes, why buy a starter?
no car starts unless cranked. (mine push starts and gravity starts)
but I bet yours is a A/T tranny , automatic.?
so does it crank.?
?
lets pretend, it cranks perfectly.
and really is a no start (confusing your replacing a starter )
this jeep , like most from 1993 have the ASD relay.
THE ASD relay must close to start the engine.
The ASD relay must close, and if spark , and up to 7 other things
are good, then it will stay closed, if not it drops out. KILLING starts.
that is what it does, so watch the ASD while cranking, what does it do>???????????

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


now I will do NO CRANK.
and the funny house box thing, (a battery charger? or what i cant guess)
no cranks are caused.
By bad shifter, switch.
this is called the key line.
so i hot wire the starter solenoid, (remove tiny wire first to it)
ask how to do this.... its not hard. (mostly but some cars have shields making it harder today)
and it dont crank ! NOW? , then bad battery,starter bad, cables or seized engine. (turn engine by hand ,ok? to spin? by hand?)
and it does crank. then bad key line is reason.
easy huh? just one hot wire step and bam, problem cut in half.
i then try to crank in neutral, bam it cranks. and starts.
bad PRNLD switch.
or i just wiggle the shifter, bam, it cranks
or i wiggle the key switch funny in crank position and bam it cranks
bad key switch.

last, pretend the starter fails the hot wire above.
i hit it with a hammer, bam it cranks now.

we can do all that with a voltmeter easy,
ask.

http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html

see hot to solve no cranks on most cars.

other simular failures.
battery dies after parked.?
charge light (dash) on , driving? or idling, bingo, dead battery.


one more , car cranks but will not start for longer than 2 seconds
ASD action
but you failed to notice the Immobilizer lamp glowing wrongly.


my last answer. the funny house thing is a battery charger
and if you leave it charging long enough car cranks.
bingo?.?????
if yes, then the battery is DEAD and is DISCHARGED.
it discharged because you or something is left running, in car.
see phantom drains here.
the reason the car jump failed is you didnt give it enough time.
a very bad car battery can swamp the donor cars power source.
(and easy with cheap jumper cables.)
here is what you did wrong.

car is rested, it wont crank
you open the hood.
and check the batteryvoltage with a volt meter.
it reads 12.6vdc rested. good, it should crank ok, (but my not)
or it reads 12v, its discharged, so charge it to 12.6v and try again.

http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html

  1. won't crank?
  2. battery discharges overnight.?
  3. won't start but cranks ok.?
  4. charge light stuck on.? running.?


which?

Battery is being drained by something, its new


2 things, not enought cold cranking amps, or while you where trying to start the car the brushs inside the starter caused a ark on the armature causing the starter not to be working at 100% option 1 have a drain test done or 2 replace the starter the drain test will show how much amps its taking to spin the starter if its pulling a high amount of amps/votage to spin the start then replace starter

Car won't crank & makes a clicking noise when ignition is turned.


Is this the original battery? Have u had it tested? The no crank, clicking noise is classic dead battery symptoms, lights can still work, but not enough power to turn engine over. If it's the original battery, it's at the end of it's life cycle, and should be replaced. U can get the battery tested for free at any parts store.

Cranks but wont start


the 2 problems are seperate . The starter might have been the one draining your battery. The bushings on a starter can wear out and the core starts to fall down a little at a time until it hits the "beds" This causes the starter to lose speed as it falls. I would recomend that you replace the starter or have it rebuilt. The starting problem may be the coil or coils . although I don't know if your car has an external coil(s) or is built into the distributer.
