Red light on Dash Blinking, Jeep Won't Start
I haven't been around in a while since I haven't had any problems with the jeep because I've been working too much, but here is my problem....
94 YJ 6cyl.
The battery went bad so I bought a new one today and installed. The post clamp on the positive was really rough also so I replaced it today too. After hooking all wires and cables back up, the hazard lights flashing for 15-30secs and a little red light just to the right of the steering column won't stop blinking and the jeep won't turn over. I took everything apart 3 times to make sure it was right and it looks fine to me. I ended up checking the starting by using a screw driver to cross the solenoid and it start up and ran fine but the red light is still blinking while running and after I shut it off, it won't start again.
Any suggestion? Bad connection somewhere? The new post clamp that I bought just has 2 bolts that squeeze a little metal strip on to both red cables? Could this cause a lousy connection? I don't figure it would since I can cross the started solenoid and it starts.
