My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee (5.2 liter V8) has a number of symptoms. First off my speedometer quite working in addition to a "Service 4WD switch" alert that occasionally goes off. This has been going on for several months. Then one day it wouldn't start, which after taking it to a mechanic turned out to be the fuel pump. After replacing the fuel pump the Jeep just didn't run well and progressively got worse. Now the jeep has very little power if any at all and occasionally wont start or will die

94 jeep 4cyl fuel problem, relay making noise. I have a 94 4cyl manual wrangler. I need to turn ignition ON and OFF repeatedly until i hear fuel pump relay making about 5 seconds of continuous noise before it will attempt to start. Once it starts runs fine.

I have a 98 f150. I went to start the truck and it will not start with the key. It is a 6 cyl. 5 spd. I can turn the switch with no resistance and nothing. If I turn the key off and take key out, the radio, and warning lights stay on. I push started it to get it started and it started right off. When i turned the key off and took key out, everything stayed on. The engine will not shut off by key, had to kill it with the clutch. I replaced the key switch on the column and it does the same thing.

I turn on the ignition switch and have to wait until I hear a clicking on 1994 jeep wrangler. On warm days the click happens quickly and on cold days, I have to wait 30 minutes to hear the click. Once it clicks, it starts right up. Is it the ignition, fuel pump or relay? Help plea!

Ignition failure Not always, but becoming more regular, I will turn my ignition switch when starting and all I get is a click. Sometimes jiggling the key inside the switch will start it right away, other times it will take 2,3,or 4 times moving the key around inside the switch and starting over. When it starts, it starts like a champ. The battery is new. I'm thinking it's the ignition switch, but doing some research I'm seeing the igniter may also be suspect. Any comments and suggestions will be
