Re: Starter troubles
I'm still having troubles, so far I've replaced several solenoids to make sure that wasn't the problem. I've replaced the ignition switch, the starter works, I can put power straight to it off the battery and crank it over to start the Jeep, I just can't get it to crank over using the key and solenoid. I've measured the control wires going to the solenoid coil and I've got about 4-6 volts, could this be the trouble? Also any chance it could be the spark coil? I only measure about 4-6 volts there too. When I measure on the output of the solenoid, I don't get any voltage reading. And when I checked with an ohm meter, it shows that the output side of the solenoid is going straight to ground somehow. I pulled that wire out of the harness and checked it, it's clean, no cuts or nicks, but when I connect it from the solenoid to the starter it reads it going straight to ground, could this be that it's just reading right through the starter motor to ground? Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's a bit of a pain to get the jumper cables out and jump start the starter from the battery every morning. Thanks for the help guys.
