Thanks Medic for your response. Sorry I am so late in answering but I broke my foot and am just now returning to my Jeep.
My solenoid hook up is a little different as follows:
A post I have the battery and fusible link to junction block
B post I have the starter cable
C post(S) was vacant when I purchased Jeep; I attached the safety/back up switch purple wire
D post(I) white wire to ignition/key
When I turn the key 12 volts are on the I wire but no voltage to the S wire.
I have replaced the solenoid 2 times and still nothing to the starter?
Could I hook a wire to the S post that is hot when the key is turned?
I don't understand how it was cranking the starter when I purchased with just the I wire hook up and nothing on the S post?
Thanks again for your expertise. The photos and drawings are helping considerably.
If I ever get this thing cranked and running I will owe you big time!
I look forward to your response.
have the same problem?
