NEED HELP - i have a 2009 trooper Joyner. the vehicle has a no start condition. no spark or fuel

after changing starter for possible bad soliniod vehicle will not start

there is no spark to the at the sparkplug and the three wire coil wire harness connector has 11.5 volts at each wire

in addition with the ignition switch at KOEO the fuel pump and cooling fan to not operate...no power to the fuel pump.. when the fuel pump is provided 12v directly from battery the pump and fan operate. the fuel switch is broken but had been bypassed and has 12v on both sides

all fuses and relays are in good condition. all fluids at good. battery charged. compression is even on all cylinders

also i can not locate the ALDL connector, it is not in the passenger side glove box area, any suggestions

i have owners manual but it dose not address a no start condition like this.

need help thank you

was everything working prior to removing starter? is the starter cranking it properly now that you ve changed it? all wires were correctly hooked back up to starter? ..Im not sure what you mean by "fuel switch" ?? maybe main power shutoff??? if the fuel pump and fan are not cycling when you first turn the key to start/run position..and the starter cranks properly..I would start with there being a power/wiring connection problem in the fuse panel behind the drivers seat ..also check ground connections normally found on transmission housing bolt below starter...Hardy

sounds like you need to look at the wiring to all you relays. look for hot connectors and burnt wires on the back side of the relay sockets.

my 08 has no ALDL connector, not sure about 09s

Have you got a manual for your Trooper, read part and pieces, it'll tell where to down load one.

thank you for all your assistance.

i am unsure of the condition prior to this post as i received the vehicle in this condition after repairs had been made. i have the manual, but i just got stuck. i did a visual inspection and found no damage to wiring or fuse block. i will check fuse block and grounds with DVOM next time i work on vehicle

i suspect the ECU may have been damaged or i am not getting crank shaft signal to trigger spark/fuel. does any one have a test for ECU or no how to pull codes from this thing?

Thank you again for all your help

compared to electrical connection problems,ecu rarely has/is the problem burnt or melted wires ..corrosion (inside fuse box and/or in wiring harness plug connections) wiring harness damage,and bad grounds..all quite common as most machines typically were not gone over and well sealed from new...these problems are much more common than a failed component on the trooper..not to say that nothing ever fails,generally if fan and pump are not receiving power to cycle on start up,means ecu is not getting power...just my 3 cents...Hardy

Also, unless the plastic around the fuse melted or around the base where the relays plug in, a visual check may not reveal the burned wire or the hot spade lug connector that goes to he relay plug, I've seen them still together, but not contacting, pull the fuse relay block that's behind the seat and take a look there. That's where the pump and fan are common and the power for the ecu

PS, fill out your profile so we know more about you and where you are, you may have some one just around the corner who can help and may go ride with

dmdc...how did you make out...agreed with Kinarfi as to unbolting fuse block and looking/testing inside as have also found corroded and melted wires and connections on the back side...once repairs are made, recommend try to seal up (weatherproof) fuse box best you can ...Hardy

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • First timer. 09 joyner sand viper.

      So I've been in the anything motor lifestyle since I was 8 doing methanol kart racing. Currently I'm building a 04 Z06, 08 Cobalt SS,  an 08 Tundra, and as of last night my first Joyner buggy. I've waited for years for this. And, this is the first forum I've ever joined (next lol to the corvette forum). Currently I'm wheeling a Honda foreman 450 4x4, a built 400 ex, an argo 6x6, a 48v ez go lifted cart, or my geo tracker 4x4. I'm out of Conroe (north Houston TX). I look forward to learning from y'all and feel free if you ever have questions or wanna talk anything wheeling. Thanks for the awesome forum!

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.
