IF YOU CHECK FUSE.BATTERY CABLES COULD BE FAULTY IF VERY OLD.THEY CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE IN CHARGING CIRCUIT.CHECK FOR LOOSE DRIVE BELT.AND CHECK ALTERNATOR WIRING IF BROKEN OR DAMAGE YOU WONT GET CHARGED.AND MOST OF ALL MAKE SURE YOU BOUGHT THE RIGHT AMP ALTERNATOR.

Battery red light wont turn off on jeep comanche


If it stays on when the engine is running, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If it stays on with the key off, there is a short in the circuit to the alternator.

Hello, I have a 1986 Jeep Comanche, 4 cylinder 4x4 5 speed that i just bought used. The battery is brand new, same with cap rotor wires and the alternator i just bought. the jeep kept draining the battery...


If you mean it is going dead while sitting you might have a short or another issue drawing power from the battery. take your truck to your local battery warehouse/store the should have a meter thet will tell you if something is drawing on your system. It could be something simple, like maybe the mercury switch on your under hood light is bad and the light is not turning off thus running your battery dead over night.

How do you set the valves on a 1989 Jeep Comanche straight line 6?


You have hydraulic lifters that do not need to be set. Make sure the pushrods are centered in the lifters and tighten the rocker bridges down alternating sides to keep them even. Pretty sure torque on those is 15 foot lbs. If installing new parts always put a swipe of white lube or pre-assembly lube on all pivot points to keep them from galling before the engine oil can reach them.

The gen. pulley wont turn truck turns off when idling


You mean the alternator pulley won't rotate?

If so, the battery is dying because there's no alternator to keep it charged up, so there's no electricity to keep the computer and spark plugs working, and the engine then dies.

An alternator pulley that won't rotate means the bearings inside the alternator have frozen up solid.

The only fix is a new alternator, and probably a new belt. You might need a new battery too, if the battery has been discharged too much and damaged.

Just installed new battery in 89 jeep comanche but still wont start. it has lights, radio. etc. and it jump starts.


Are you jumping cables from both battery terminals or are you using the ground cable to engine ground? Might be your ground cable from the battery is broken or not making contact.

Break Lights won't come on in my 1988 Jeep Comanche


Why replace the whole fuse box? That's rediculous. If you can't find the fuse box, just fix the affected circuit. Did they check the brake switch?
