Jeep has trouble starting.

Recently my Jeep has been slow to start in the mornings but never fails. Twice midday I have turned the key, and the fuel pump makes its noise it does when it turns on, and the starter just clicks once. Then all the lights die out. After 15 min on both occasions, it decides it wants to start, very easily. I replaced the starter a couple months ago, and it has started fine till recently. I know its not the battery. Please help. Thanks.

Check the ignition switch, or turn the key to the on position and place a screw driver between the battery connector and the solenoid. If it fires up right away it is most likely the ignition switch. The ignition switch is inexpensive it is just a pain to install.
