1986 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 163000 miles
As I tried to start the car, it wouldn’t. The ignition key moves in 4 positions –
1 – Lock
2 – Off
3 – El. Circuit
4 – Start
All positions seems to work (even on the position #3 all the gauges work and the voltage gage shows the battery status) except, when I try to “start" absolutely nothing happens and it starts draining the battery – real bad. After trying to start again, position #3 fails to work. After replacing the battery, the same thing happens - - position #3 works but the start attempt seems to drain real bad the battery. Smell, under the hood is like the battery acid would vaporize...
I replaced Alternator, Starter and Battery. Didn’t help any.
have the same problem?
