I just washed the engine down with some car soap and water, so hopefully if it leaks on my journey back home I will be able to spot it. I'm going to pull over and check on it every 15-20 miles.

Just to update everyone, it made it the 40 miles back home fine. Still seeing no leaks and no noises or problems besides the pre-existing ones lol.

Thanks to everyone!

I just went outside to start my jeep and it wouldn't start. It wouldn't even turn over, nothing. All my lights work though....

I checked the battery voltage and it read 12.5x volts. It was around 0 today before the wind chill - but it should have at least tried to start, right?

With your volt meter on the batt does it drop at all while trying to crank?

That will require me to wait for my room mate to get back, and then I will try it.

Also fuel pump sounds good, I heard it when turning the key to the on position.

All gauges work then the key is in the on position

I checked the starter relay using an ohm meter and it read around 65 ohms on two tabs and 0 on the other two tabs, so it's good

I then put the dmm in the starter relay slot in my fuse box and got a 12 volt reading from pin number 30

I did the same thing as above but put my key to the on position and got a 12 volt reading from pin number 30, 85, and 87

I hope that helps someone because I don't understand what it means.

On my starter there appears to be 3 bolts. I attached a jumper cable from the top left one to the positive battery terminal and nothing happend. I then attached the jumper cable to the bottom left one to the positive battery terminal and all I saw was some sparks but not very much. I did not connect it to the far right one because it looks like a ground, but I can see the red positive wire going to one of two (or both) of the studs on the left. I can't tell which one because of the black plastic cover it has on it.

Here is a picture of my starter so you can tell what I mean by 3 studs. (In the pic you can only see one of the left, there are two - vertically)

I just tried putting a fuse (20amp) in the #20 slot behind my glove box (which should bypass the clutch safety switch, i believe) and that didn't work either.

Anyone have any other ideas? I've literally tried everything that I have found on-line.


EDIT: I made a new topic so it has a different title and hopefully someone with expertise helps me out ( http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/je...start-2022881/ )

You can try jumping from the battery wire on the starter to the small wire and see if the starter works.
The small wire is the one that comes from the ign/start circuit.

So that would be the left two studs, correct?

Have you tried just jump starting it? It was -5 here in ohio a few days ago, my jeep did the same thing as yours. The cold drains your battery.

I jump started mine and it started right up. Worth a shot instead of beginning to throw parts at it.
