Need advice!! WK wont start!

The wife got in her jeep today and it started for a second twice and stalled. Now nothing! Won't even turn over, just a click. Pulled the battery and it tested good. Any ideas?? Gotta get this thing fixed today so I can go wheeling this weekend!!!!

Oh yeah 05 limited 4.7l

My wife had the same issue while at work. Pulled the battery and it tested fine, but just for the fun of it I pulled the battery out of mine and put it in hers and it started right up. Bought her a new battery and haven't had a problem since.

If its not the battery, it will be the yellow starter wire. Search these forums and you will find a lot of posts on this..As for the stalling please check codes and let us know what comes up.

Well after getting back from the auto parts store to have the battery checked, put the battery back in and it started right up. Must have cleared what ever code it had. Beats the hell out ta me. Been using it all day and its running fine. Could it be something with the crank positioning sensor? I'll check that wire on the starter, but it seems odd that it started then stalled. I guess I'll just have to keep driving it and see what happens.
