i have been on the fence about being a supporting member of this forum... however this thread sealed the deal for me to pony up!
My 95 always started on the second key turn since I bought it a few years ago.
This winter she sat for several months after the frame swap.
This week, I was starting to see the signs that "brain surgery" was in order, turn the key, no CEL for 45 -90 seconds...
FRANTIC, I started searching the forums and came upon this thread.
I ran out to the local Radio Shack(s) (as I had to hit two of the to get all of the caps) picked up the pair of 220uf and one of the 470uf, about 6 bucks. Then I splurged on desolder braid, 5 bucks and a Rat Shack 35w soldering pen with stand and solder..etc.. you know, the "kit" they sell. Another $13. tube of silicone 5 bucks. All in about $30. Followed the directions here in the thread.
Disconnected the battery, moved the windshield washer fluid container, took out the computer, removed the board, cut away the balastics gel, removed the caps, put in the new ones, filled in the gell holes with silicone, reversed the order to put it all back.
Jumped in the seat, took a deep breath and turned the key. CEL and the other lights came right on, and the engine started on the first crank.
YEAH BABY !!
How excited is this guy!
I guess my YJ Is my midlife crisis therapy.....
