I have a 1990 wrangler. It loses total power. Like the key is turned off! Can not figure it out.

Asked by Aug 02, 2009 at 11:11 PM about the 1990 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Carb has been rebuilt, and the cap and roter have been replaced, but it still stops running like the key has been turned off, no spark? Where should we look?

Sounds like an electrical problem. Check the master relay, ignition switch, etc. to see how far power is getting. Does it sputter, or just die suddenly? Does it start back up easily?
