Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Our 2001 Jeep Wrangler had a dead battery and a starter issue. The battery was replaced, but now the security system won't operate and the starter can't be replaced until it does since disarming the security system is necessary to turn on the car. After fiddling with the key that disarms the system, the light turned green (it usually turns red when the system is disarmed. The car still won't start, and we are wondering why the light turned green and what to do to get the system working without having to pay to remove it so that the starter can be fixed. Thanks so much.

Try checking the battery and battery leads. Sounds as though you have a bad battery. Also check your fuses under the hood and dash.

2006 Jeep Wrangler won't start


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.

Sounds like you have a bad battery. The quick way to diagnose it is to first ground the negative jumper cable to a metal point that is attached to the car frame of the Jeep. If you can't find one just attach it to the negative battery terminal on the battery.

Then detach the postive battery cable from the battery (you can do this first if you feel safer). Next is to hook up the jumper cables to the car that is going to jump your jeep. Make sure the positive jumper cable is not touching anything on your Jeep first.

If you have friends this makes it easier!

Now you want to connect the positive jumper cable(red) to the positve battery cable on the Jeep. Make sure that the cable ends are not touching the Jeep at all (very important)

Now you want to go start the jump vehicle and make sure the cable still is not touching. Then go try to start the Jeep. If the battery was bad the Jeep should fire up with minimal effort. If you are still getting the same issues then it is either a bad cable or possibly a starter motor that is starting to go (high resistance).

If it starts bring the battery down an autoparts store to be tested.

1998 Jeep Wrangler 4cylinder Won't start


Connect the charger to the terminals on the baqttery not the cable ends. This will ensure a good connection. If battery still does not charge fully, replace it, clean the cable ends before attaching them. Then put a volt meter on the battery and check that charging system is putting out at least 13.5v a little more is ok, With accessories on including high beams lowest reading should be 12.75 and not drop even after five or ten minutes.
Jumping across a bad battery will often prevent enough power to the starter, If still in no-start with new battery starter may also have failed.(but will need testing to verify.

2001 Jeep Wrangler not starting


have you check the alternator possible problem. if not that you have a draw on the battery with the key off. you need an amp meter one that will clip around the positive cable from the battery this will tell you if your vehicle has a parasitic draw with the key off. most parts stores have loaner tools you can use. hope this helps some.
