Re: Need help with starting Jeep

Give me a little more info, when you say it starts fine for a while do you mean it can go for a couple days starting and running fine and then all of a sudden it goes back to not having power again? It sounds to me like you have a loose ground wire or a short some where that is either preventing your vehicle from starting becasue it doesn't have a complete circuit (ground problem) or the battery and power is being drawined somehere from a short that may be draining your battery . Check all your wires located around the body and frame and make sure none of them are shorted and make sure you ground wires to body, frame etc, are all tight and have a good connection. Thats where I would start, I would also check my alternator and battery to make sure they are in proper operating condition.
