Well it started again last night. Won't start. If I hook it up to jumper cables, it starts immediately. Not even a hesitation. I'm kind of stumped on what it could be...I'm going to go today and get the electrical system tested again.
5 months ago I had the issue with it clicking once or clicking alot when i tried to start the car all the lights and assessories came on but it wouldnt crank over. I replaced the starter (new one from autozone) and it started right up and never had that issue since.
I am having another possible issue:
Our first below freezing night here in Denver the car was completly dead the next morning when i went to start it. i thought it was the battery since it was the stock from mopar. i bought a Duralast Gold ($165.00) from autozone. It lasted 2 days and went completly dead, so i took it in and told them they gave me a defective battery which they replaced. The next night the 2nd NEW battery was also dead. I charged up the Jeep and drove it down there to test my electrical system. they checked the battery and the alternator and said both were good. the alternator was holding charge at 13.7 amps. some one told me there is a selanoid in the alternator that might not be turning off when the car is off which can pull current very slow (it is the original alternator). i am lost on what is draining my jeep, if i drive it around it will hold charge for several hours but overnight it is like someone syphons the battery. oh by the way I changed my oil right around the time my car lost charge and my oil light has been on since(code p0520) oil pressure sensor. i am going to replace that now. could this sensor drain the battery?
