When I turn the key the car will not start,it makes no sound and starter won't engauge
I have replaced the ignition switch and relay on hot lead from the battery. No change, and the starter doesn't in gauge. The battery is brand new. I'm at loss on how to proceed. I brought a McNally repair book but its so generic its almost use less.
the ground connection to the block (near the alternator) needs to be looked at...we are working with over 300 cold cranking amps here...a smaller wire will simply catch on fire...assure the big hunkin' lug that connects to the frame/chassis has been wirebrushed down to metal...here and the one that goes to the engine block...both are key...the starter itself gets it's ground from bolting to the bell housing...if corrosion is stopping the amperage from getting thru should use a coarse wirebrush to clean all surfaces for the amperage needed~
by relay you mean starter solenoid? this one slams into two contacts to allow the 300+ amps to get pulled thru for the startermotor~
...okay yes Jeeps have ignition relays...keep the old one it's probably still okay~

the silver box on pass. side of eng. compartment is the starter relay. If your vehc. has auto trans. the problem may be the range switch on pass. side of trans. Will it start in the neutral position? If so this is the problem. Does the silver box click w/you try to start it? Hope this helps......
