Jeep Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to Just Answer!
Can you turn the key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON within 5 seconds and watch the digital odometer to see if it displays a fault code. It will be a P followed by 4 numbers and if there are no codes it will say done. Let me know, thanks!
Did you turn the key all the way on to the run position and then off all the way in the sequence I mentioned?
Do you have a digital multimeter?
Can you turn the headlights on and measure battery voltage and let me know.
Then pull the starter relay out of the power distribution center and take a short piece of wire and jump terminal 87 to 30 in the PDC. Make sure vehicle is in park. Let me know if the starter cranks.
Hey Buddy I went at it this morning, redid the computer reset (discconnected both battery cables) let sit for 15 min. went back out with my expidition, rehooked the battery on the jeep and did your starter bypass. the starter did run like you said. I then seated the relay and put jumpers on the jeep to Expedition, and tried the Jeep, It started (yea!)
so without further ado, my wife and I drove it back to the dealership for service. I sced myself $90 bucks on a tow at this point and was armed with a better knowledge of jeeps
numerous mod's that need to be in sync with the vin and key fobs ect....my lengthy disccusion with the service manager got me free diagnostic check and an inexspensive repair of the wireless control mod. I am more that happy with your effort, I saved a bundle, and impressed and appreciate your diligence. thank you Dennis
That's awsome that you were able to get it going!! I am happy it was a cheap fix, that is always a bonus! Thankyou very much, Richard
