    thanks for the help but i figured it out. seems battery cable was good enough to run acc and read good on meter but not enough to turn starter. i pulled wires from bat connect and cleaned, wire brushed and lo and behold it got enough juice. thanks again for the suggestions.

These were not made with a safety switch on the clutch, but far as the starting issue. I am expierencing the same thing. Replaced the clutch put it back together and it wont start. when I jump the starter by placing a jumper wire across the two starter posts it starts right up. acts like there is a switch or relay somewhere that is not allowing current to get to the starter.

Clutch switch bad


Clutch switch keeps it from cranking.
You can bypass the cluctch switch. Make double sure transmission is in neutral. On many jeeps, under the hood is fuse/relay box. One of the relays is the starter motor. Pull the relay. With a pair of pliers, take a paper clip and short the pins that go to starter. They wire can get hot. If the starter cranks, you might be right (see ignition switch and any interlocks - like clutch switch), if the starter doesn't crank, get a new starter.

2000 jeep wrangler wont start


If it won't crank, check clutch safety switch and cables for the starter.
If it cranks but won't start, you'll need to find out if it is ignition or fuel to know where to look next.

I cant put on gear when I start the engine.


Check the clutch master cylinder, the line to the slave cylinder on the bellhousing and the slave for leaks. If fluid is low there is a leak. Master can "bypass" as well similar to a brake master in which case it wont leak but the slave won't move when the clutch is applied. If that system is working then the clutch likely has worn out.

My 89 Jeep YJ manual will not go in to reverse while running


Problem is likely either a worn shift fork or bad synchro (both inside the transmission) It's unlikely that you have a clutch problem otherwise the problem would be with first and reverse and shifting other gears would also be difficult.

1991 jeep wrangler sahara shifting promblems


Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.
