Default Jeep Dead. Help!

So my Jeep died today. I think its my starter but am not sure. Basically, when I turn the key, all the lights and accessories come on but the motor doesn't turn. No sounds from it or anything. Just dead.

Is it my starter or could it be something else? Thanks!

oh yer fucked if its a jeep newer than 99

did you try the neutral position of the shifter?

id find the starter relay in the underhood box, see if it clicks when cranking, if not, pull it and pop off the cover and then manually close it and see if it cranks (or use a paperclip to the proper secondary side pins) and youll be able to drive it at least

its possible its a starter but iirc thats a neutral/park switch to the pcm and the pcm enables the starter relay and it powers the starter solenoid.

more than a few times ive found older starters with the exposed motor lead (fromt he solenoid) corroding and eventually burning completly through, but youd hear the chunk of the bendix if that was the case.

Starter. Happened to me with my 99 Cherokee. Everything would turn on but wouldn't crank. Changed the starter, fired right up.

yeah well the older jeeps used the nippondenso starter so you could just slap new brushes in the solenoid and your back driving for 10$

now its all bosch and you have to buy a brand new fucker

this world is so fucked with everything being non servicable

Thats a real possibility if we changed it outside. Luckily, I have a garage.

My 05 WK 4.7 did the same thing, its the connectors to the starter, they used cheap alloy and they corroded. I took them off, wire brushed them clean and used some electrical grease when i put them back on, thing still cranked all day when i traded it in at 160k.
