Jump start = Volt Meter spikes while driving then wont start
Just looking to see what I'm up against here. My guess is alternator? Here's the details:
Got in an accident the other week and had to jump it afterwards to get it to start. Drove it home and during the drive the volt meter spiked to 19V+. Ended up only doing that for about 5 mins and went away. Shut the car off after about an hour drive home and it immediately had nothing when I turned the key. No crank, no beeps, no lights, nothing. Put a tester on the battery and it showed 12-13V. Took battery out and had autozone test it, good battery.
(ps this is a 2000 TJ 2.5L manual trans)
