I'm having trouble diagnosing a no start problem. 1997 Cherokee 4x4 4.0 liter.

I can hear the fuel pump come on when I turn on the key.

I pulled a plug wire and have no spark with plug attached and grounded to the engine.

I checked all fuses outside and inside big and small, none are blown.

For the heck of it I replaced- the coil, distributor cap, rotor and the pick up coil in the distributor.

After further investigation, I have no 12 volt signal to the coil. I unplugged the coil and with a test light, key on, I do not have 12 volts at either wire.

Help me please?
Thanks,
Dave Ps. Feel free to email me direct iniguy@hughes.net

There is probably 100 plus post on this forum about Jeeps not starting!

Do look for them, there is alot of info on them, look under the Cherokee section.

One thing I always tell peeps is to check there position sensor, located on trans. Mine has giving me problems several times.

Second thing that has givven me problems is the shifter. I must push it forward (towards the firewall) so the jeep knows it is in park. You may want to try & start the jeep is nuetral. If that switch is still good (mine is not).

Good Luck

Look Deeper in the forum, you shall find what you are looking for. Wink

Here is a good one
