Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

First thing I would check is to make sure your battery cable connections to the battery are tight, since it started after the change.

After that, check the DIY section, there are several threads on no-start fixes.

Also, the following info will help us help you:

How many miles? Auto or manual trans? Any symptoms like this before?

These Jeeps are notorious for crankshaft position sensor failures, which would cause a no-start as you describe.

It's common enough that some serious Jeep owners carry a spare

Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

Jump starting the vehicle should not have caused any issues.

Since you said this started immediately after changing the battery, have you made sure the battery cables are properly tightened?

MagicRat is correct, the CPS can cause a no start condition. But since this started suddenly (it DID start suddenly, right? Have you been having start problems before the new battery?) I'd think it had something to do with the work that was just done.

Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

OK understand the part -the CPS - is difficult to buy in Malaysia, but that could be the problem.

You can try disconnecting the battery cables, then holding them together for 15 seconds, sometimes that sort of reset can help.

Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

Several threads here about testing fuel pressure. Sorry, but I have never done it.

Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

Yes, I can certainly send you a CPS, glad to help. They are approximately $90US at the dealer, and less expensive at a parts store.

Let me find out how much they are and I will post back.


edit: I live on the East Coast of the United States.

Re: Cannot start my 94 xj...

There are 2 different parts for the 1994 XJ. If you send me your VIN (vehicle identification number) I can find out about the correct part.
