ZJ Starts then Dies - grounded alarm wire
Alright, here's the issue - I have a 1995 ZJ Limited 5.2 that I've been slowly getting in order and finally got inspected today. I've been doing 90% of the work on my own and have a pretty good grasp on how to do things. I replaced the stereo head unit and all four door speakers today, and when I went to start it up and move it from in front of my garage (in an apartment complex, absolutely need to move it ASAP) it would start then stall in about 2 seconds - pretty much exactly like the alarm was going off. However, the alarm is NOT going off and I can't get it started by locking and unlocking the back door (which is a struggle, because it only unlocks about every 10th attempt). Next I cut the purple/yellow wire in my drivers side door and screwed it to the door panel. Same result, only this time when I reconnected the battery I didn't have the 4-ways going like normal. I need advice on getting this thing going ASAP!! Thanks in advance!
