2000 Jeep XJ 4.0 2wd
Problem: no start, no crank.
Symptoms: 4 days ago the jeep started by a slow moving starter as if the battery was dieing... Slow whinding up. I hear a suttle click under the glove box when turning key all the way..
What i have done:
1)replaced positive and negetive battery wires/terminals.
2)replaced with a Used starter off an 03 Grand cherokee (the solenoid wire connecter was different, so I spliced my old wire to the new starter) yes the starter tested good at pep boys.
3)checked all fuses in kick panel and under the hood. There all good...no burns or broken peices inside.
????? Possible relay? Ignition? I have had a tumbler issue in the ignition and have had to hit it a frw times with a hammer to knock it loose... All lights, radio, horn etc all work. I do get a beeping sound when the ignition key is on as well..
Also have jumped the solenoid wire to the positive terminal on the starter and the starter whinded up...the key was not on...
4)new battery , also have tryed jumping it with the new battery.
ahhh yes. It was the ignition lock cyclinder .. it wasnt pushing in far enough to engage I guess. I pressed in on the key fairly hard and felt a slight push and she turned over!!! Thank you for the help. So I guess I need a new ignition ? or did I really screw something up with all the banging around when the key was stuck.
