JUST PAID OVER $600 A MONTH AGO - NEW STARTER, BATTERY, IGNITION SWITCH, AND TUNE-UP - LEFT HOME, STOPPED AT MOM'S, GOT BACK IN 1998 JEEP WRANGLER - NOTHING! NO ATTEMPT AT STARTER, NO CLICKS, NO NOISE -...


Sounds like a faulty / intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.

1998 jeep wrangler starting issues


Hi Dava224 i had the same problem with my 1989 CJ. when it was cold out i would pump the gas pedal 3-4 times before turning the ignition. it puts a small amount of fuel in the motor without stalling it out. it wont start as hard. another good idea is to keep some fuel stabalizer in the tank everytime you fill up. hope this helps

4.0L engine with ignition problem


Did you hook up all the computer grounds on the rear of the head? I think they are connected to the rear head bolts. Check all the engine grounds and body grounds.

1998 Wranger Ignition Key Stuck / Steering Column Locked


I have had this same problem on 4 of my Jeeps. A locksmith provided me with two answers.
This key thing happens to me at least once a week.
It is a common problem with Jeeps. 1998 Wrangler, 2007 Cherokee and two 2000 Cherokees all had the issue.


1. Replace the tumbler assembly. $150. USD (Not!)
2. Place the key in the ignition, smartly impact the key on the **** end, end that is sticking out of the ignition. (Harder is not better) strike straight on as to not break the key off. 4 or 5 strikes should fix the problem every time.

FYI - flooding the switch with WD-40 will not fix the issue, it is a tumbler problem.
