I started the Jeep just fine in the morning. After turning it off, I disconnected the battery briefly. While reconnecting the positive side of the battery, I clipped a metal rod with the wrench and caused a spark. I thought nothing of it and tightened the battery wire back down. Well now the Jeep no longer cranks when turning the key to the ON position.
I can bypass the Solenoid Switch and get the jeep to crank and turn on. I can also run 12V to the Ignition Rod on the Solenoid and get the Jeep to crank and turn on. So I know the Solenoid is not the problem, nor the Starter.
What other possibilities could it be? I am thinking ignition switch because the Jeep runs fine (aside from some sputtering).
have the same problem?
