it won't start I got power to my lights and the check engine light came on
Automotive Expert
so was this an issue before or after you replaced the starter?

it was an issue before it was changed but the check engine light is new
Automotive Expert
if the car is not running and key on on position the light will be on by default. will the engine spin over or nothing from the starter?

Automotive Expert
so engine will not spin over correct ?

Automotive Expert
did the jeep stop while driving or came out one day and would not start?

right after I parked it, it won't start
Automotive Expert
any check engine light on before you disconnected the battery?

no, and I didn't disconnect the battery.
Automotive Expert
you replaced the starter with the battery still connected?

a mechanic did I didn't see how he did it but I guess so cause the time was not correct
Automotive Expert
did you have him diagnose the issue or just told him to replace the starter?

he diagnosed could not find a problem at the timebased on the clicking sound I heard we ended up changing the starter
Automotive Expert
single click or rapid click?

it was single click
Automotive Expert
he diagnosed it but could not find a problem? it was not starting and he could not find an issue?

actually it started after it went to the mechanicwe changed it to be on the safe sidenow I don't here the click there is no sound but there is check engine light and it won't start
Automotive Expert
so sounds like he needs to take a look at it again now that's it not starting since you paid for a diagnosis that was not complete. as i said the check engine light will be on if the key is on and the engine is not running.

oh ok
Automotive Expert
take the battery out and have it tested. also make sure there is no corrosion on the terminals

alright thank you for you assistanceone more question if it were the security system is there anything I can do?
Automotive Expert
this should be pretty straight forward diagnosis do you see a red dot flashing on the dash?

Automotive Expert
the no not a security issue

ok, it must be the batter then. I"ll have it checked tomorrow, thank you so much Kevin!!!
