I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler. I never had any problems with it, I worked for like 5 hours one night, came out and my battery was completely dead. I had a buddy jump it for me. It took about 10 minutes before it was able to even start up. I tried to get it home and it died after about 45 seconds of me driving it. He drove me home and I came back with with my girlfriend and we tried jumping it. I started it by pressing the gas, but when I released, it would die right away. I eventually got it to stay started by lightly pressing the gas. I wanted to make sure it was good before I tried driving it home so I turned it off and tried turning it on again but it wouldnt start. Im trying to figure out what is wrong so I can fix it. I really cant afford to have it towed to a repair shop and pay a repair bill. My girlfriend thinks its the starter, her mechanic friend that she texted said it could be the spark plugs, the guy who tried jumping me says its the alternator. I believe its either that or the battery. Does anything jump out at you?
have the same problem?
