Thank you for the information.
Upon further investigation the problem appears to be the clutch safety switch which my mechaninc has now removed for me. Apparently this can only be repaired by dealer??
Now, in addition to this being unsafe for someone who may not be aware of the missing safety switch, my clutch "clicks" everytime it engages...
Ive always had trouble finding a good mechanic but was told that if water gets into the starter it gunks up the starter components.
One mechanic even told me to spray it with wd-40 after it gets wet.
This sounds foolish to me since the starter looks to be one of the lowest points.

The switch will probably have to be ordered from a dealer, but any competent mechanic can replace it.
As for spraying the starter with WD40 every time it gets wet.............

Was headlights and taillights, digital lights working but not the dash cluster? This is what my 2004 Wrangler is doing. Need help, shop labor is $95. an hour. Hope to get an answer soon. Thanks, Bill

So it's still a problem...
So what exactly IS working?
So what exactly is NOT working?
Your post is a bit confusing (or it's just early still).

They might have trouble finding any honestly Satisfied Wrangler Owners.

Not necessarily. Depends on what years we're talking about (YJ, TJ, and JK's are ALL Wranglers).
#1401 of 1888 Blower motor removal

I need to remove the blower motor on my 2002 Wrangler ,but can't seem to find the screws to remove them, it's underneath the glove compartment dash . Any help PLEASE

No screws as it has a release tab. Disconnect the wiring harness, operate the release tab, then rotate the motor assembly counter clockwise and withdraw it from the HVAC unit. Reverse the process to install.
Earlier models are bolted in and are removed from the engine side of the firewall after removing the battery.
#1403 of 1888 starting problem
Nov 20, 2008 (7:52 am)
I have a 06 Rubicon and it decided not to start after I got to work today. I have lights on the dashboard and I hear one click when I turn the ignition key after that I hear what sounds like something else trying to engage like maybe the solinoid. Another issue I see when I open the drivers door the speed and rpm gauges on the dash start to jump or pulse. I disconnected the battery and then reconnected it to see if it was just a loose connected and I also banged on the started but neither solved the problem. Any ideas what could be the problem?
#1404 of 1888 Where are the spark plugs
Nov 20, 2008 (9:51 am)
Sounds stupid, but it is time for my 04 to have a tune-up (actually WAY over due) but I cannot find the plugs and wirings. I try to find a repair manual but 04 info is tough to find. Thanks
