Bought this Jeep and drove it 150 miles.
Put it on blocks and replaced starter, starter solenoid, all hoses, all gaskets, ignition switch, alternator.
The engine was rebuilt 6 years ago.
Since replacing above parts the starter will not crank. I have tried 3 starter solenoids including the original that was on the vehicle when I last drove it.
Nothing when I turn ignition.
The starter works when I place cable from the battery to the starter, it will turn.
The solenoid originally had a neutral back up safety wire but was not attached when I bought the Jeep.
I have since tried everything to get this engine to crank.
I am at my wits end!
Again, I believe it has to do with the solenoid but can't figure it out. I am getting voltage to the ignition wire on the solenoid and voltage to the back up safety switch but no power from the battery to the starter post on the solenoid.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
