INTERMITTENT STARTING SAMURAI

Suzuki Other

My 87 Samurai intermittently will not start. It just clicks. Then it will start normally most of the time. The odd thing is that when it won't start, I can jump start it and after charging for a second it fires right up. The old alternator was only putting out 13 volts so I replaced it and it starts MORE frequently but still not completely consistently. Could it be the ignition switch even though jump starting it ALWAYS fixes the problem?

I don't have an answer but I do have the same problem with my 1992 Suzuki Sidekick.
Did you ever fix your problem and what did it turn out to be?
