Having problems with your 1987 Jeep Wrangler ?
Hello i have a 1987 jeep wrangler and it won't
\015 Hello i have a 1987 jeep wrangler 4.2 with an auto transmission and it won't crank but i found that with the key on the tail /back up lights are on.i was told that the safety neutral and back up are on the same switch in the trans.i traced the wires from the trans and found a black wire with white stripe broken coming from the trans harness weather pack into the engine bay .i do not know where this connects.\015
The wire should go into the same harness as do the remainder of the wires from the switch. If you tell me which pin the wire attaches to in the harness plug I can tell you what it does/ The two center ones opposite the clip are for the starter.(Plug facing you, clip at the top, two center pins in lower row) Likely the wire you are looking at is to the starter relay But, if the reverse lights are on, make sure the neutral switch is adjusted properly before doing anything else...if it is, a contact inside the switch may be broken and bridging the reverse contacts.
