    My KJ wont start. We've done the ignition thing n it's fine. So now we're up to starter motor maybe, unless one of yas know where to pinpoint me next.
    (She's an old gal, 330,000km n engine is still beautiful)
    My question tho is ...will a KK starter motor n alternator fit my KJ??
    (If KK is also V6 n petrol)

    Welcome to the forum. What year is your Jeep?
    Next try the starter relay. See photo try moving one to another (swap 1 around)

    You can have the ignition on and use a jump wire to bypass the relay as well.

    Does the engine turn over but not fire?

    Any codes stored that you can read out?

    What year/model is your Jeep?

    Some models the Alternator has the Regulator built in while others have external regulation from the PCM/ECM.:(
