I took the battery harness off and cleaned it really well and replaced it. when i put the key in and try to start everything comes on like its going to start but the engine does not turn over! Any help with this is much appreciated. I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangle Sport 4 L 6 cycl manual trans

    Check the clutch switch. Make sure it's plugged in. If it is, make sure the e.brake is on, trans in neutral then disconnect the clutch safety switch. Find a paperclip and make a U shape out of it. Install the paperclip on the switch harness connector then try to start it. If it starts, the switch is bad. The switch is located on the clutch pedal rod.

    #2 is the wiring and #3 is the switch. If i remember correctly, the connector is either green or black. Look under the dash board and follow the clutch pedal up to the pivot base. You should see the rod connected to the pedal and the other end goes through the firewall. That rod should have the switch attached to it and the wiring should be next to it.

    I am having this same problem. I turn the key to on, all of the dash lights and stereo come on, the battery charge meter goes to 12 o'clock, but when I turn the key to start nothing happens. I don't hear the starter turning.

    I think the problem for me is that the battery cable that leads to the start has heavy corrosion on the connectors. I would also check that to see if your start is getting sufficient power. I am in the process of removing the connectors on the starter and cleaning them off.

  11. You had to have blown a fuse if you know where to get to it on your jeep, I'm not sire, but to me it seems your last resort is a fuse??

    Check for a 12v on the starter cable with the key on the start position. If theres a battery voltage present, the starter is bad. If theres no voltage present, check the starter relay on the PDC.

    go behind the glove box, there is a fuse block there for your nuetral safety circuit, pull the fuse for the circuit, this will allow you to start the jeep without the clutch being disengaged, also check the IGN fuses under the hood, and you can also take a screw driver and cross the solenoid and starter and see if the starter bendix engages or not, if this does not work then you need a new starter
