problem solved for 3 dollars
 
I had issues with my jeep not starting at all. Had the whole thing looked over and the shop said my battery was at fault

battery tested fine at 3 different places

we were leaning towards the starter, then it hit me

The jeep would start everytime i removed the battery

turns out the positive and negative wires in the battery clamps were corroded

3 dollars in new napa clamps, jeep runs like never before...

Just a suggestion to all, go to napa, buy new battery clamps today. Spend 20 min putting them on and save yourself a headache down the road

They are cheap! Its easy to do! No excuses! :2thumbsup:

It's something you never think about, but it sure helps!

.... you could have solved this with an $0.89 can of soda instead of replacing your clamps... or a battery terminal brush.
