On the small wire? Try changing the relay.

Very minimal to no volts on the small wire. Relay in PCM is good

Before you do that check the fuses in your fuse panel...

If you have voltage to the starter relay and the ignition send power to close that relay and send power to the starter solenoid wire and the big red wire has 12 volts with good amperage it should fire up.

If this starter is good; Turn the ignition key to the ON (not START) position. Put 12 volts to the small wire lug on the starter solenoid.

It should fire up....UNLESS you are missing a major ground point, or the starter relay in the PDC lost it's ground point.

Check the second ground from the firewall to the engine block.

I forgot about something that is really obvious. Have you checked the neutral safety switch?

If u have a 12 volt test light... Attach 2 good ground. Next, have someone hold over ign switch 2 the crank position. Probe the starter housing, if the test light lights, u have a bad ground. Next take voltage drop tests of cables neg and pos. u need a volt meter 4 this test. 2 test the pos cable .. Hook 1 end of the meter to the pos post and the other end 2 the pos starter lug. Crank over the engine.. If u have over 2 volts or more. U have a bad connection or cable. Do the same 4 the ground cable..

On your first post you said your Jeep was a manual trans, so it wont have a neutral safety switch. Check the clutch pedal position switch, or google how to bypass the switch. I think there is a fuse to pull.

I believe I also added that I know tht wasn't what it's actually called, but I couldn't remember what it was actually called. I did however check the clutch pedal position switch that's on the tcase and that is operational. As of now I took my jeep to my buddy's shop and he can't look at it till Saturday due to the holidays so I'll keep everybody posted on what it could be once he looks at it

The clutch pedal position switch is located under the dash on the clutch master cylinder. There is a simple way to bypass the switch. Install a 10 amp fuse into a clutch bypass slot.

That's slot 20 in the fuse box. Put one in there and I still had no luck with starting
