    '97 Clicking sound, no start

    Whenever I try to start my '97 wrangler there will be clicking sounds and it will not start. Previously the check engine light had been on due to needing a new Crankshaft position sensor, I replaced the sensor and the problem is still persisting. I have also tried jump-starting it. Ideas on what...

    Jeep Wrangler TJ won't start? Read this!

    I have seen many posts on this board with people incorrectly diagnosing starting issues, or giving advice that requires a lot more wrench turning and guess work than necessary. I figured I could make a little diagnostic write up to better inform people about how to test the system, and how it...
