My Jeep will not turn over when the key is turned on. I have replaced the starter/solenoid, ignition switch, and the crank position sensor. If I use a screwdriver to bridge the gap between the solenoid and starter, it starts up immediately. The Jeep has always run great, it just quit turning on using the key. Any suggestions as to what I should do next?
