97 Jeep Wrangler turns over but wont start

Just put in new fuel pump in. The engine turns over but still not getting any fuel to the fuel injectors. None of the gauges (tach, speedo) nothing works. Tried a OBD 2 scanner but it wont even connect to the jeep. I can get the jeep to crank as long as i spray starting fluid into it but stops as soon as i stop spraying. Checked the fuses and they all seem to be ok. This thing has got me flusterd bad. I need help.

Had similar problem induced by a mechanic from a national chain tampering and removing with the wiring to terminals of the ASD (automatic shutdown relay in fuse box under hood). I replaced wiring and mechanic kept removing it, This eventually fried the computer $700 (no gauges working at all).

Check the the fuel pump if it is working if not you have electrical lost connection then if is working close the line on your tip then open a little bit check the pressure if it is good enough to fire the engine

Replace the pump fuel solinoid.That only allows fuel through when the ignition is swiched on and its that is the fault good luck.

    WHAT WOULD THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE GAUGES NOT WORKING, OR THE LACK OF COMMUNICATION WITH THE SCAN TOOL

I have a 1993 jeep yj put a new fule pump in it lots of gas in fule rail turns over dost start can aneyone help


If the injectors do not fire, fuel in the rail does not matter since it's not getting gas into the engine. Look to see if your check engine light comes on, when you turn on the ignition. If it does not, then your ecu computer is in need of repair since it's not sending either a spark or fuel injector signal to fire up your jeep.

94 wrangler 4.0 fuel pump wont turn on


If your check engine light does not illuminate when you turn the ignition on then your jeep ecu is in need of repair. The check engine light has to be on for the fuel pump to get power. Try leaving the ignition key in the on position for a few minutes to see if the check engine light does eventually come on and if the fuel pump starts to work then.

Have a 1999 jeep wrangler sport. was having problems getting it to start and was told the engine needed replacing. we put a crate engine in, but the jeep still will not start. any ideas as to what could be...


I would look at the fuel delivery system including the fuel pump and fuel filter to make sure your getting the proper fuel pressure to the injectors.I would also check the power control module to see if that's operating properly.Some auto repair shops have machines to check the operation of the module.I hope this helps or maybe gives you an idea for a new starting point.

97 jeep wrangler getting spark not fuel. I


Sounds good ninemil, I would also check for any bent or disconnected fuel lines that would restrict the fuel flow as well. I do not know if this has a fuel pump assembly but you should be able to hear it actuate on when the key is in the "on" position. How did it act before you shut it off? Was it harder to start? Make sure you buy a high quality pump (Carter) many of those cheaper brands will fail trust me.

Jeep will crank but not turn over without gas and rough idleing


Have your injectors, injector pump, fuel pump and filter checked. if you have a new motor, definitely check the fuel filter. Also, you could have a relay or sensor, have a tech put a diagnostic machine on it to check your electrical system.

1989 Jeep Wrangler Standard wont start


You have to check if this is fuel or spark related. You HAVE to put a filter in the system or the fuel injectors will get clogged. Check for spark first. If you have a good spark at the plugs, then your problem may be fuel related. If uou don't have any spark, then the problem could be a bad crank sensor.
