Wait.....maybe I should ask if you're finding fault with my response, or expanding on it?

wizekrakr First thing to check is your battery cables. Pull off both the pos and neg and clean the posts and the cable ends. Make sure to scrape any hardened surface or crust off of them. Then you can go from there. Try some jumper cables. That will usually eliminate battery issues. If nothing still you will need to check the starter trigger. Could be an interlock like stated above with an auto trans.

mikewiz38 Could also be the starter. You can test it by jumping the terminals, but use caution.

dead_eye My YJ is an auto and does this sometimes. I shift it to neutral and it will crank and run fine. If yours is an auto, try this.

No start

On vacation after driving the Jeep 3 hours and got back in to a no start. The gauges move and lights work but there is no clicking or cranking. Any ideas off the top? I thought maybe fuel pump because I donít hear it but wouldnít it still crank?

Iím in Lake George until Monday if anyone is in this area - I have no tools but can buy beer and pay!
