See my profile. WHAT EXACTLY DOES YOUR JEEP DO, WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO START?

Have you PHISICALLY removed and CLEANED: (NOT JUST LOOK AT THEM)

All mechanical connections, to include wires inside the battery clamps

Both battery posts

Both ends of each battery cable. POS and NEG

Remove, clean and tighten both ends of the STARTER cable

Remove, clean and tighten ALL WIRES entering the SOLINOID aka STARTER RELAY

SEND REPLY,

Love, Turddog

Did everything except:
Remove, clean and tighten both ends of the STARTER cable

Will do today. Dumb thing to not check. Also, the radio has some weird association with it starting. Sometimes, if you take the radio face off and wait and reattach it. She starts right up. Coincidence?

Thank you for your time and help. Off to check that cable

Thanks

I sent you a PM, must not have it or cannot retrieve it.

Not in my sent box. Email in PM or here, and I will send you several Walmart albums to view, many Jeep modifications.

Make you envious!. Will try Pm again.

Want to know if electrical stuff helped, or do I need to do more homework. RADIO. Must research.

Love, Turddog

Replaced the starter. It was going out. Still have not done the starter cable. It ran great for 2-3 days after the new starter went in. Thought that was it.I did receive your PM and I do apologize for not responding before now. Between work, school and coaching.I haven't had time to think!
