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!

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.
