  • engine not turning over?

    I went on vacation last week and my jeep was running fine. it seemed harder to start and keep running but still worked good. I get back from my vacation yesterday and it wont even attempt to turn over. I checked the voltage onthe battery and its all good?. is this a bad starter? or what the hell else?

    Thanks,
    Gishdream!

        try taking a pair of pilers and jumping it ... shoots a few sparks, but it will tell you if its bad and takes like 3 seconds!

          Sounds like the battery to me. It might have 12V, but not enough amps to turn it over. Have you tried to jump start you Jeep?

            sometimes a battery can get so dead that a jump start wont even do it. try a battery from another car if the solonoid is not to blame.

              but the only thing is that I can run the heater just fine, I would figure if the battery was to low the heater wouldnt turn on. I tried to jump it also. diddnt even click.

                The intire vehicle can run on a battery that shows 12volts but does not have enough amps to turn over an engine. I found this out with my CJ-5. That was a biatch to find let me tell you. Problem was it was a newer battery. So never rule out anything.
                However solenoids are cheap. Replace that one first and make sure you have a good ground to it.

                  Check With Your Headlights, Turn On Your Headlights If Their Dim Then Replace The Battery, But I'm With Everybody Else Check The Solenoid First. Oooor The Starter May Be In A Dead Spot? Hit It With A Hammer, Or Semi Large Wrench.

                      Yeah, he's right. Worked for me before, but if you're not even getting the click, it's the battery.
