Went to start truck, heard a clicking and banging noise, voltage meter moving back and forth, then everything went dead no power to instrument panel radio etc. Replaced selenod, power back on to instrument, went to start everything when dead. There was no noise, no clicking, no power any where. What is burning out selenod?/ The star was replaced about 3000 miles ago. Thanks

See my profile. Imma Jeep Guy.I do not know your vehicle much at all.

My rig uses the "Traditional Ford Solenoid", It works the same way yours does.

I do not think you are burning them out!

I believe you have a DIRTY--LOOSE--BAD CONNECTION. Somewhere in your STARTER SYSTEM

Check all connections that are mechanical

Battery clamps to posts

Cable to battery clamps

Battery Ground---to engine and/or frame

Solenoid connections--clean and tight

Starter Connection

If this does not resolve your problem----pull the starter and see if it is shorted out or locked up. Advance Auto or Autozone can test it.

Rsepond with good news

Mr. Solver, If you ever want further assistance from "ME" in particular. Respond at this Question, Otherwise I do not receive an "Alert". And you are just "another available question unanswered at this site!

I MAY or MAY NOT be able to assist you if this does not regard a "CJ" or a "general automotive fix".I am not real familiar with your particular rig. Just General things.

How did you come out with the original problem you had. Never saw you come back here!

I like responses. Only way I can see if I helped, UNLESS you make me look good in "FEEDBACK"

Thanks for MAYBE using any suggestions I gave you.

Hope you are fixed inexpensively!
