Starter Problem Fixed!

Per my post 01-05-2012, 09:36 PM

I was having intermittent starter trouble. I would try to start the Jeep by turning the ignition key. The dash lights, radio, and other electrical would come online, but the starter would not activate.

The Fix: I removed the electrical cables from the starter, unbolted the starter, and then reinstalled the bolts holding the starter in place.

Why this worked: The electrical connections including the ground to the block had become oxidized. By disconnecting and reconnecting the wires and removing and reinstalling bolts, I scraped the oxidation off, making for a good electrical connection.

Re: Starter Problem Fixed!

I'm having the same problems. I think I'll give this a try before replacing the starter.
