Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. the times it doesnt start do you know if the tach is showing rpms?
just checking in to see how its going
excuse me???? if the tach wasnt showing rpms that would me the crank sensor is bad, so what are you talking about????????
it was a question that you did not answer, so that we could continue the process of fixing your vehicle. apparently you are not familiar with this
the rpms will move up a bit while cranking, confirming the crank sensor operation. now what is it that you dont understand?
turning over means starting. cranking mean the engine cranking. so next time i would suggest writing the correct problem
in the automotive industry. cranking mean the engine is trying to start. turning ove means everything turned over and started, sorry for the mix up
have you tested for power at the starter motor?
is there a red blinking light flashing on the dash?
if the security module fails or you have a dead key the jeep WILL NOT crank and will set codes (YOU NEED A SCAN TOOL to read ALL the codes)
the starter circuit is very basic on these and starter motors are still as common as they always were
BUT you need to determine if there is actually power getting there from the starter relay
then you should have closed the question.
i will for you so you don't have another expert attempt to help you
have a great new year
