Hey TJ owners! I have a 1998 TJ, all stock. When I turn the key to ON, the gauges work, the radio plays, the lights work everything. When I turn the key to START, I get just an electrical sounding buzzing noise that sounds like it's coming from the gauges, but nothing from the engine compartment. In the past few months (since I've owned it) the power would cut out sometimes when the jeep was running, e.g. when I flipped the turn signal on, or just randomly. If I turned the car off and on again the power would come back.
So yesterday morning finally the jeep just wouldn't turn over. I pushed it down the hill and it jump started just fine. I tried again in the afternoon but still wouldn't start, and this morning again the same thing. I checked the error codes and I get 12,43,43,43,17,55. That was from turning the key on and off three times. I did it while holding down the odometer reset button and I got code 43 with the check engine light flashing 4 times, and then 3 times. Then 17, with the light flashing 1 time, then 7 times. Then 55, with the light flashing 5 times.
Is this enough info for anyone to make a diagnosis? I really appreciate the help! I don't want to go replacing a bunch of stuff just to find that "that wasn't the problem".
Much appreciated! Thanks!!
