Customer Question

I installed an ignition switch on my 1995 wrangler. Now it won't start.
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery?
Customer: Those are good. It turns over just no fire.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I put the old one back in but still nothing. It ran before I took everything apart.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: no. I just didn't know if there were a certain way to do it.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
