Someone help me! What is this? It looks like a relay that runs to the starter and the positive terminal on the battery, but it's loose and seems like it's preventing my jeep from starting.
X2......... Yes this is the starter solenoid. Tighten up connections and see if Jeep starts. If not you can take 2 rubber handled screw drivers and place one on each screw/lead on each side of solenoid and touch the metal parts of screwdriver together. If It arcs and Jeep tries to start the solenoid is probably bad. If you change solenoid make sure you take note which lead goes where according to orientation of solenoid as hooking up wrong will cook your new solenoid and you will be headed back to the auto store.
I got mine from rock auto. You might be able to find it in the help section at any major auto store. Just remove your master cylinder cap, flip it over and remove the black rubber gasket. There are two tabs on it, you will see once you flip the cap over. Take it with you to match it up. If not tomorrow night ill look at mine and get you the part number
Sooooo running into a new issue lol. Today when I started it up, e engine wasn't completely warm yet but I pulled it out tried driving and it just died. Did it like 3-4 times especially starting uphill. Any suggestions?
