Can you operate 1999 Jeep Cherokee sports auto trans with the TCU disconected ?
Turn the key on, get gauges to move, go to start and get nothing. no click no gauges. I have replaced the starter, cable, and solenoid. wondering if there might be a fuse ? or ?
My first guess would be a lack of a ground to the engine block. The ground strap is needed to deliver battery negative to the starter. You can use a multi meter to determine if you have battery negative at the case of the starter. Then check for battery positive voltage at the “S” terminal on the starter Solenoid while someone holds the key in the “START” position. If you see both battery positive and battery negative, replace the starter. If you do not see both you will need to trace your wiring and connections.
