2012 Manual Won’t Start

Stopped on the trail today to let the dog jump out and grab some water out of the stream go to start back up and nothing. Won’t turn over not clicking or anything. Almost acting as if I was trying to start it without the clutch engaged. No check engine light. With some help was able to get it pointed down hill bump started it and drove home no issues. Battery is in good shape plenty of power. Really seems like it doesn’t get that the clutch is engaged. Ideas?

You sure? It's been load tested?
These JKs are extremely sensitive to batteries that are even a little weak, or if the cables aren't good and clean and tight. And when the battery or cables are questionable, they won't even try to turn over.

Went out to the Jeep after work fired right up. Checked cables they were both very tight. Took battery to be charged and tested and they said it’s fine.
