laybackman - I'm not certain exactly what the push botton starter does bypass. All that I know I'm bypassing is the little relay looking thing that is down on the starter. Howscome the push button will not work when it is directly hooked up to one of the larger two terminals on the starter, but does work when you hook it up to the same prong the brown wire is? I believe it is a brown wire, kind of hard to tell it looks orangeish to me, but was probably brown when new. When you say starter relay, you're talking about down by the starter, and not up by the fuse box or anything, correct?
Que89YJ - I don't notice any difference in starter speeds based on which method you use to start it. It's not like one way seems to be spinning noticably faster than another, or atleast I haven't noticed it yet. The ignition, fuel pump, fuel filter and pressure regulator are all new. As far as ignition, new plugs, several caps, buttons etc etc. I had purchased a new distributor, but it ended up being remanned incorrectly and never did work. Timing is dead on according to the mechanic, he used the timing light and the computer. The last code that was thrown was an O2 sensor and that was when I had the Jeep for a short time between the two different shops, and I replaced the O2 sensor. Fuel pressure has been checked and is where it is supposed to be, it does not leak off any more than normal. He would leave the guage on the rail all weekend, when he returned it would have leaked down like normal, but would still have pressure. We suspected that we maybe had an injector that was leaking as the backfire was through the exhaust and it sometimes seemed flooded. He pulled the injectors, left them attached to the rail, primed the system with the pressure guage on there to ensure the rail had pressure, put cardboard under each injector and let them set. He did this for three days priming the system each day and never had a trace of fuel out of any injector. He noided them, and ohmed them and all checked OK.
Sorry for the late response, work keeps getting in the way
I did go out about half hour ago and try to start the Jeep. The Jeep had not been started since Sunday about noon. I went out and hit the key twich with now luck...left the key on and hit the push button and it took off, sounded a little rough, but it was running fine. Shut it off and hit the push button again and ran smooth as could be???? I'm tickeled pink it started, don't get me wrong, just confused as to what's going on.
