I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.

Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.

I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.

If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central.

Thanks Chris

With the key in the run position. At the starter use a bare ended piece of wire and touch it to both wire connections on the starter relay, does it crank and start?

Jeep Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Great, though I assume it did not start while the key was on during this test?

Iam looking for help if you cant then refund my money
Jeep Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Sorry you did not notice the hours I work, mentioned in my prior response. If those hours do not work for you, I can opt out and get you yet again back on the waiting list.

Below is a link to the starting diagram. Next we need to remove the starter relay. There are 5 pins but only 4 used. They go to the: ignition switch, starter, PCM, and fuse 10. One pin should be power (12.6 volts). When trying to start another pin needs to be power. When trying to start another pin should be ground. Can you see which input your missing.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
