Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5L engine. It was running great but recently would not start. The engine turns over but acted as if not getting fuel. When I cleaned and pressed down on the fuel pump fuse, the engine caught and was able to drive it. Now when I try to start even while applying downward pressure on the fuel pump fuse, the engine starts and immediately dies. The engine will only catch if pressing down on the fuse and if NOT depressing the gas pedal. As soon as I try to give it gas after the engine starts it just dies faster.

The connector under fuse panel that goes on the fuse is heat damaged from overload or loose tension [usually is loose tension] obvios signs are heat damaged plastic around the offending connector.could be the wire is broken right at the fuse. you will have to get at beneith the panel and check it out splice in NEW connector[s] as needed

03 Wrangler will not turn over/start

Pull off the battery cables from the terminals, take a bit of sandpaper, and run the **** over the terminals. Then, mix a 25/75 Arm&Hammer/Water mixture, take a rag, and run that on one terminal, then the other, try not to drip water. Take sandpaper again, and run it over the terminals again, until they are fully shiny. Now, do the same things on the inside of the battery connectors. Make sure they clamp down well. That should do it. If not, make sure all the wires are good and solidly connected. Finally, get a voltmeter, and test between the block and the positive connector/terminal. Should read ~12.4-6V. (12.4 = bit low, but I figured if it's trying to go through a corroded connector or a short, it will be a bit low)
