Jeep No start, Faint click in PDC box

97 2.5L wrangler has a no start problem. Drove about 120 miles Saturday, go to fire her up Sunday morning and nothing! No cranking no clicking nothing! Cleaned up terminals checked wires and went to fire it up again, nothing except i noticed a very faint click in the PDC Box, assuming that was the starter relay. Lights and all work fine but when i go to fire her up my radio turns off then about 5 seconds after the attempt the radio turns back in. I am leaning towards a Cable issue but wanted a little advice. Tightened/Cleaned terminals and cables. Charged battery, Tried Jump starting, Tried another battery, Hit the starter and starter relay a few times. NOTHING
Pop starts fine!
Any help is appreciated!

Bad solenoid on the starter maybe. Pull the starter off and take it to Autozone or one of those and they will test it for you.

I had a similar problem. Replace positive and negative battery cables. There is also a wire from the positive terminal to the power distribution center. I had replaced first the positive, couple weeks later the negative, 6 months later wire to power center. All had internal corrosion.

I'm going to look into both when I come home. In leaning towards a cable issue which is why my radio keeps cutting out when I go to crank
