So I have an 08 Laredo with about 71000 mi on it. Just bought it used around Christmas. No problems...until This past Saturday night. Went out with my wife for Valentines Day and when leaving the restaurant the Jeep wouldn't start. So I read a bunch of forums and threads about this annoying issue (seems somewhat common) that the wire to the solenoid easily dislodges/builds up corrosion/gets burnt, blah blah. Seems like an easy fix.
I looked under the jeep and can't seem to locate the starter
(feel pretty dumb about that one). So my questions are:
a - Where is the starter?
b - Am I able to reach the wires to the solenoid on the ground or do I need to lift it?
c - If that terminal comes off that easy, can you switch the type of terminal?
