I have a 91 YJ with approx. 140,000 miles on it. It has always been a bit of a pill electrically speaking. Most recently it has developed a serious starting problem making it highly unreliable. It wouldl start easily most mornings, then you would drive it to a destination, go about your business, get back in and try to start it and get nothing, except the dash lights and radio, no clicking of the starter or anything. A couple of hours later you'd get in and it would crank right ove and startr as if nothing were wrong.
I have replaced the starter, alternator,coil, ignition switch, plugs, fuel pump and most everything else. Most recently I took it to a Jeep dealership, they kept it for a few days they related having had the problem happen to them and said they traced it to an intermitten short in my Power Control Module which they replaced, $1,000.00 later they said the problem was fixed. I picked up the Jeep, it started right up and I drove it home, two days later I drove it to the store did some shopping and when I came out to go home, it wouldn't start. Again with the same problem, nothing but dash lights and the radio no clicking or turning of the starter at all.
I called the dealership and they said to bring it back out to the shop. I was able to push start it and get it back to the dealership. They had it again for another 4 days, this time the service manager said that the mechanic found a short somewhere and that the jeep was running and starting great, explaining that they kept it for a couple of extra days just to make sure. After paying another $150.00, because they cut me a deal on the labor, I drove home with no problem. The next morning I went to leave for work and the Jeep wouldn't start again. when I got home from work that evening it turned right over.
Has anyone had this problem, and can anyone help?
