Question about 2006 Jeep Wrangler
Replaced the battery. Replaced the starter. Replaced ignition switch. Turn the key, lights/radio, etc come on, but Jeep wont' start. Hear a click behind right dashboard.
First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

Testimonial: "Will try! Thanks!"
Had the same problem. Turn key, but nothing happens. Turns out the 30amp fuse under bonnet ( hood) had blown. Started no problems when push started. Replaced fuse, and was o.k for a while, but blew fuse again a few weeks later. Once again replaced the fuse, and all starts o.k. I suspect a faulty solenoid/ worn starter motor brushes, which I will check next service.

Check to see if you have spark and fuel pressure

I have the same issue -- 2006 Wrangler. Engine light comes on when I turn the key without starting the engine. Radio, lights, AC all work. Engine light blinks 9 times. Try to start and hear nothing...won't start. Turn key off and back on a few times and it finally starts. Took to autozone to run a check and comes out clean....no issues. Said it maybe an EMF or ECS or something like that. I don't want to spend $$$$$ to take it to Jeep.

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.
