I have a tach wire question for those who in the know. Is there another option for a tach wire I can use to get a tach signal other than reaching all the way into the passenger rear side of the engine bay The tach signal input wire on my remote start unit is really short probably a 1.5 feet long. What have others done My remote starter starts cranking and then stops before fully starting so Im assuming I have a bad tach signal wire. Thanks guys.
what brand and model are you using does your alarm flash the brake lights when the remote start is used some alarms will kill the engine if you hit the brake light if the brake lights flash in doing so it will kill the engine immediatly after start up. you will have to add a diode on the brake light trigger if this is so. tach signal is also something good to look at. you should be able to attach it

I hate to bring this back from the dead but I have the exact same issue. 1996 jeep cherokee sport with an open or short connection between the ignition swith and starter relay. Where did you find your short I do have some wiring diagrams from the chrysler manual but i dont know what to do with them s please help
There is no fuel pump relay on the CRD...unless you have fitted one yourself. You have two problems....ignition switch does not actuate the starter. Secondly if starter is actuated then it does not start. By jumping pins 30 and 87 you have proven the starter and battery are OK. So maybe the starter relay is faulty or fuse 28 under the hood has blown. You need to check with a Voltmeter that you get 12 volts on both side of fuse 28 when turning the ignition switch...if not then the actuator pin is broken or the ignition switch is faulty. If this 12 volts is on fuse 28....you need to check that pin 85 on the starter Relay is at Ground....the Dark GreenOrange wire. You see that this wire has to go to ground via the ECM which is checking the switch on the Transmission (assembly Transmission SolenoidTRS) to check that you are in Park. If you ground this Dark Green wire then the starter relay should energise when turning the ignition key...make sure you are in Park Do you have the anti-theft SKIS system installed You should have a Key symbol or a small red light on the cluster that goes on briefly when the ignition is ON...this means SKIS is installed. The light should go out after a few seconds. If it flashes then the SKIS system has not recognized the chip inside the key...engine should start and run a few seconds then shut down. If the SKIS does recognise the chip in the key but the ASD fails to energize then the SKIS light stays ON and the engine turns over but does not start. So check if your AS relay is energizing...you can swap the ASD relay out or also jumper pins 30 and 87 together and see if the engine now starts. Reasons for engine not starting are ASD relay not energizing. Air in fuel at the fuel filter. Bad Crankshaft Sensor. Bad Camshaft Sensor. Bad ECU or bad wiring. The bad wiring that Samse2101 is pointing to is a known problem on the 2006 CRD only. Here is the circuit diagram for the Starting System...this is for the 2006 model but should be close to the 2005 model. You can download the complete 2005 Service Manual here..includes all circuit diagrams. Note that the Export models have a few differences to USA models Some owners recommend also downloading the 2006 Service Manuals...each one has a bit of information that the other one has missing. httpwww.colorado4wheel.commanualsjeepKJ
You should probably post this in the FSJ forum...us cherokee owners have the small ones. Do a search for FSJ starter diagram. Theres a bunch of FSJ wiring and vac diagrams around
The problem with the jeep was an extremely corroded positive terminal. There was so much gray gunk holding it to the battery it took a couple hours of PB and hammering which ultimately messed up the post on the battery (the PO had a used battery in it anyway). This also showed me the power from the starter solenoid was getting gross too so I just decided to replace it. I used 4 ga. wire and soldered
Are you saying the motor is running and the starter ISNT turning while the motor runs but when you shut the motor off the starter STARTS Can you be more clear Its either an ingnition swtich problem sending a signal to the starter at the wrong time or its a mechanical starter problem. To help the discussion heres a basic diagram of the jeep starter. I belive most are permanent magnet motors and dont
With the starter relay back in place tie pin 85 of the relay to ground...this overides the interlocks such as park neutral etc. Make sure fuse 28 (15 A) is OK in the fuse box under the hood. You need circuit diagrams to see if voltage is getting to your ignition switch....and coming out of it Download the 2006 Service Manual here...includes circuit diagrams httpwww.colorado4wheel.commanualsjeepKJ
Pull the starter relay. You can make a simple jumper out of wire and 2 spade connectors. In the starter relay cavity in the PDC youll see 5 openings 3 on top 2 on bottom. The 6 & 7 are at the bottom. If you put your jumper into these 2 the starter should run. When it starts then you pull the jumper and hopefully unless the starter itself has some internal short it will shut off and the engine keeps running no more problem. Relays while they can go bad work by getting voltage to a simple low voltage solenoid that makes contacts move. Most of the time the problem is stray or unwanted volts being sent to the relay and then making these same contacts move when you dont want them to. So to be safe swap the AC clutch relay into the starter relay spot. If it starts and no more problem with starter then leave that relay there and get another one to replace it in AC spot. You are done. If the problem occurs yank that relay out and shut it off. You are looking for spaces 8 & 10. The top row of 3 spaces goes from right to left 8-9-10. Put the jumper into 8 and using the voltmeter run it to gound and see if you get any voltage with the ignition off. You should not. Then turn it to run and see if you get voltage if you do the ign switch is bad. The only time you should get voltage at 8 is when the ign switch is turned to start and it should end when you move the key to run. 10 is the ground that goes through the NSS. If you want to check this then put the jumper into 8 hook up voltmeter put another spade connector or just a small wire into 10 and hook it up to the voltmeter. It should show voltage when ign switch is in start position and the trans is in P or N and only then. These s 6-10 are from the wiring diagram part of the FSM. My number last post of 86 & 87 are from starter section of FSM but these are basic relay s and not the actual ones that jeep uses have no idea why they do this. Good Luck Phil

I am having the EXACT same problem. Replaced the NSS Stater Solenoid checked all the wire tested the voltage everything checks out but the jeep wont start. All I get is a clicking at the solenoid. Touching the B and S at starter fires her right up. Do you (others with same problem) get a click at the solenoid Did you find out what the problem is All help will be appreciated as I need to get this jeep

New starters are pretty cheap anyways. Ive had to replace the starter on both of my 96 XJs since owning them. They just go bad after a while. I used to have this problem where my jeep wouldnt start... ended up being the aftermarket alarm the previous owner put in. It had an ignition bypass on it and the wire had frayed. So the starter relay was only getting like 5v of juice. Id have to turn the key

between the two somewhere. Like I said earlier the ignition switch may be bad. If you are looking for a cheep and easy way to fix this install a push button switch on the dash and use it to activate a relay which you would use to activate the starter solenoid. Doing it this way will bypass whatever problems you are having and still require your ignition switch to be in the on position for your jeep
Yes the key was set to ON and i connected red power from battery to both the 1 on my diagram nothing and then 3 and nothing happened. I was really confused. Did the same thing with my last starter we assumed it must be the starter then thats why i got the new one. Could be that the battery is getting low but usually itll slowly turn over or do something. Right now the car is at Pepboys. Im going to have to get rid of it after this car is very problematic i might get into a overall better condition jeep with less miles.

Im not really familiar with any of it...so any help is greatly appreciated Id like to be informed on the process before making a purchasing decision. Thanks and happy new year. I had mine taken in Wed night (its now Fri night) to be installed. The shop manager at the dealership installs Commando brand remote starters after hours. Hes installed many in Chrysler & GM vehicles but never in a jeep.
Unfortunately you are correct. There is no diagram other than whats in the FSM. Im not very skilled with electronics but looking at my FSM I think this is what the fuses go to in the junction block which is inside the jeep 1(25A) - aux power outlet 2(25A) - cigar lighter 3(10A) - left headlamp fog lamp relay 4(10A) - left headlamp 5(10A) - right headlamp daytime running lamp module 6(5A) - trans slector

Quote Originally Posted by alex211 Thanks I already that diagram but it really doesnt help that much since all I need is what color wires do what on the column plugs. It may have the info in that diagram but I cant seem to find it. Large red wire - main power in. Grayred goes to the parking brake switch. BlackTan goes to the brake warning light. Violet goes to instrument cluster pin A-14. Dark Green
