    Can you tell me if there is spark or fuel?

  • grthomas11 Jul 13, 2010

    There is no spark from the coil. I think it getting fuel. It still needs to be towed home to do some tests. Im just trying to get some ideas. Any help would be great. Thanks

  • grthomas11 Jul 13, 2010

    I checked every connection I could find and still nothing. The engine just cranks.

    When I turn the key to the on position the fuel pump does not work, no warning lights and the gauges don't work. The fuel gauge is pinned at full.

I would start by checking all the fuses and relays under the hood , you can have one or more fuse or relay disconected or loose from the big bump
also go threw chack all electral conections, one or more might have come loose
it would be a good idea to go threw all fuses and conections unplug and plug back in.
Let me know if we need to dig deeper into it but i think you will find a loose conection

Testimonial: "After checking all the things I thought were the cause I went over all my fuses like you said and that was right. My jeep runs like before. Thank you"

My 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport quits momentarily when I hit a bump in the road (paved, not off-road). It starts running again in about a second or two. Computer, maybe?

Why would hitting a bump have anything to do with a computer?

Vehicles hit bumps on every road trip

Computer is a solid state board,no moving parts

I have a '92 jeep wrangler with a 4-cylinder. When you are driving down the road it surges. Does anyone have some advice on this problem. Could it be or is it the injectors? And do you have to take it...

I dont think there are any injection parts in this 92 engine, just good old carburator. Which is most likely causing the surges. And you should definitely take it to the garage, it could eventuelly blow up and wreck the whole engine for good.

What does the auto shut off fuse do? 92 Jeep Wrangler is having start up problems.

The auto shutdown relay in your vehicle is controlled by the computer. If the computer does not see a signal from the crank or cam sensor, it will turn off power to the relay which in turn shuts off power to the fuel and ignition system. Unlike those in many passenger vehicles, it's not connected to an impact sensor. (as jeeps are off road vehicles as well as being transportation, if they had an impact sensor, they would be prone to shutdown when traveling over rough off road terrain)
The fuses to the relay are affected by shorting or overload of any components they serve, or by a problem with the relay itself.

Jeep is dying out when you hit a bump in road it starts but runs real rough and backfires 0nce in a while then dies again restarts everytime

Check the wire that feeds voltage to your ignition system. Check any connectors or plug-ins on that wire. It sounds like you have a bad connection. I've had this happen before, including on my motorcycle! Hope this helps!

My jeep won't start

You need to find the auto shut down relay (shuts down engine in accidents.) Likely it has triggered I am not sure if yours is re-settable or not but if not you can replace it. Generally this relay is found somewhere at the front of the vehicle, underneath, in the vicinity of the bumper. Anyone that works in a body shop can likely point it out or tell you where to look for yours. I'm sure there are a bunch of off road guys who also know how to bypass these, otherwise they would all have problems banging and bumping their way through rough terrain.Sorry I can't be more specif
good luckic with this but they keep moving them around!

1998 Jeep Wrangler Electrical Short in Steering Column?

I had a similar problem with my 2000 Jeep TJ and I found the problem in the wiring harness under the hood.several wires were corroded and almost burnt off.If you remove the black tape which keeps the harness bundled together and if you see evidence of "green" type powder or "gook" it's most likely where the wires have faulted.
