It could also be the neutral safety switch
Edit: or its just as simple as it being the starter

Washed it and cleaned most of the interior. And took the doors and windows off.






I don't even own a jeep anymore

Just because electronics work, does not mean battery, cables and connections are not bad. What are the symptoms? Any grinding? Electronics do not take a lot of power, but cranking the engine does.

The first time it cranked for about a second but then stopped. Now when I turn the key I hear a single click from the ignition area but nothing else also can hear a click in the engine comp. But no grinding or cranking at all.

Can never be sure since I am not there, but it doesn't sound like a starter. Sounds like not enough juice. You have juice, just not enough. Try moving the cables around or a jump first.

The clicking is a symptom of not having the juice, and the system is working. Good luck!!!

Drove the boys and I to brunch after a long night of honky tonking and noticed bubbling paint on the rear drivers side corner where the body comes together. SUCK!!!! Another job for my build page.

It's not a dead battery clicking. It's more of a faint click from the ignition switch which I'm assuming is normal.

Hmmmmmmmm? Well, I don't know if you have AAA or what, and I don't know your level of mechanic ability, but I sure would try the whole jump thing first as I see it from here. A jump from someone is sure cheaper than a tow. More than likely, you have already tried something like this already though I am guessing.

Sounds more likes dead battery based on that. Have you tried using jumper cables?

Yes I've tried jumping it and it does the same thing while hooked up to another car.

It started perfectly 4 other times yesterday and now nothing.

Installed 6 inch springs on my rear axle and continued trying to eliminate the driveline vibrations I'm getting with my 8.8 axle.

I had no idea these axles were such a pain to get dialed in and vibration free...

They shouldn't be.

I've set up a couple and never had an issue. Are you using a magnetic angle gauge and setting the pinion angle 1-2 degrees below the driveshaft angle? (I'm assuming you have a SYE based on lift height and axle swap)


Also, what is the driveshaft angle in relation to the transfer case output angle? (DS * - tcase *)
