Hi Guyz
Yesterday when i started my Jeep, she didn't start... Sounded like a flat battery, so i removed the battery, (bought brand new 2 months back) and put it on a slow charge through the night,(added some battery water). This morning i replaced it back in the Jeep, ready to go run some errands, but guess what... It still doesn't start! Tried both keys, only makes a click noise from the starter i'm guessing. Ive never had starting problems, other than the original flat battery, and it usually starts like a charm, until yesterday Any ideas? i fiddled a bit, and eventually put the battery back on charge, thinking it might be a dud? Or Sentry problems, as i did switch of/ terminated ignition before the sentry light went off yesterday... Help please

I would go grab a new battery and see if it starts then. Could be the alternator isnt charging your battery or you have something draining the battery when it is sitting overnight. If doesnt start with a new battery then its your starter

Also check to see what amps your at on your gauges, should be 14 or above if your alternator is charging your battery when your driving

Get a multimeter and check the battery. If it is not actually dead, it may be the starter. ALSO, it may be the cable running to the starter from the battery. I had this issue. Replaced the started. All was fine for a day, then it wouldn't start. I then ran a new cable from the starter to the battery and haven't had a problem since. Maybe sure all of your connections are corrosion free.
