Re: Hi

Welcome to JeepGarage!! It could possibly be your starter is shot. Old school people would tell you to try a screw driver between the terminals to see what happens.

Re: Hi

i was advised correctly on here to turn my key 3 times to the lights and off, either a code or Done will show, i did it and Done did show. if starter was naf would that not produce a code?

Re: Hi

Not sure. Try reseating the battery cables if you didn't already. You could take the starter off and take to autozone or something that can test it to see if that is it.
