not the battery?

When my battery died the jeep behaved like it was the starter, just click noises. All my other vehicles would at least turn over. When the battery is dead the computer acts funny.

yours too? at least you got 40k more than me. that sucks! I gave it a shot on tuesday but it was a b*tch to get at. going to try again one last time to get at it on Saturday but if i can't i'm just going to take it in... not worth f-ing something else up!

nope, i sat in the jeep and watched movies until my ride came with the headlights on just to see that it wasnt the battery.

It may indeed be the starter, but my headlights ran normal until the tow truck got there

same thing happened to me. Starter took a craap right about 80K too. Lucky it hapened in my driveway. Getting to the starter is a pain, seems to be in the worst spot front driveshaft is in the way.
