New Starter, No Start

Just replaced the starter in the ZJ cause I thought it was a bad solenoid. When i turn the key i can hear the relays click but the engine wont turn. I tried starting it in neutral and it wont work. Battery was dead but now it's charged up and still nothing happens when i turn the key.

Any ideas?

sounds like you might have a ground issue possibly. this same thing happened to my brothers car a few days ago, what we did is we took a set of jumper cables, clipped one end of the negative jumper cable to the negative battery post (with terminal on) and the other end of the negative jumper cable to the engine. left the positives disconnected. fired right up. the original ground cable was bad. replaced the negetive cable and all is working now.

Why did you have to charge the battery? Get the battery tested.
