ok so i have had some starting problems for a long time. replaced starter battery ground straps and a sensor in the trans. still the problem got worse. so now the jeep wont start at all. but here is the funny part. i turn the key. nothing. jump under the jeep with the key still trying to start the jeep and then smash the starter and it starts every time, but the starter still wont stop running untill i hit it again. so no im starting to think the second starter i got was also bad? what do you think the chances are? im thinking about throwing my old starter back in to see if the problem gets a little better. that should tell me if the starter really is the problem. what do you guys think??

When you replaced the started did you replace the solenoid as well? Could be the newer started is bad too, or the solenoid is bad. Fucking electrical gremlins dont ya love them.

yeah it had a 1 year but came seem to find the box i need to bring it back, if my problem gets better after putting the old one back on then i want to get a brand new started anyway, not a shitty rebuilt one
