Do you think the coil could not be getting power because the car thinks the alarm is activated so its breaking the circuit?
Jeep Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 5 years ago
the alarm system if activated it will only cut fuel off ,not spark.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Jeep Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 5 years ago

the next thing is to check the asd relay in that same box so let me know when you finish with the fuses.

Jeep Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 5 years ago
that will be perfect tomorrow at 7:30 it is good night.

Jeep Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 5 years ago

if the fuse #8 is ok then we need to check why the relay is not getting that power and that can be either the ignition switch or the fuse box output power to the relay in the same box, this problem can be the relay box also.

but will continue tomorrow and hopefully will be over .
