Re: Help! Dead Jeep...

Where should i start looking to find out where and why this thing shorted or what-not.
I would start by following the wire that goes from the starter solonoid (battery side) to the fuse box. Chances are, your problem is in that wire or one of the larger circuits, since anything else should blow the smaller fuses in the fust block.
Don't eliminate the possiblility, tho', that there is a short somewhere like the headlight circuit or even the radio. If the fuseable link was weak, a "small" short the normally wouldn't blow it could have.
If your Jeep has the splices wrapped in duct tape, they may be your problem. My Jeep had several of those that the tape had come off of.
