This is really weird:
My jeeps charge indicator went to zero while i was a few blocks from my house so I drove home right away and shut her down.
-Battery shows 12.4V
-Just tested the alternator the day before when i cleaned the terminals and its putting out 14.5V
-There is a good connection between the battery and alternator I tested with a voltmeter.
-I've removed my winch/lights/sub cables to simplify everything
-When I try to crank it all i get is the solenoid clicking
-When I hooked up a spare battery to jumper it, the motor turns over but not super fast. It should still be enough to start though. With the additional battery im getting just under 13V. Even though it turns over, it doesn't want to start!
What is wrong with my reasoning here? This just doesn't make sense to me. The next thing I will test is if I get sparks at the cylinders. If you guys can solve my problem, I promise to finally get a membership! I've been meaning to for a while now.
