Q: Gauges not moving

asked by on

My jeep turns over, but won't start. Also, the gauges on the dash don't move when starting.

Hi. A no-start condition with no rpm while cranking would leave me to suspect that the coil isn’t switching. This causes your car to not produce any spark, contributing to your vehicle not starting. I would have a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the no-starting issue with your vehicle and diagnose the problem accurately.
