OK, here it goes. I have noticed that when I crank my Jeep the last couple of days that it seems to spin a little slowly. Today I drove it around for awhile and stopped and when I tried to crank it back up it just spinned over slowly then nothing. The ammeter was at about 10 volts. It has a pretty new battery in it so I don't think that is it, maybe the alternator? I let it sit and tried to crank it later and just got the solenoid click. I then got some jumper cables and hooked it up and it would never get it to spin, just click. I got some friends to help me push start it no problem and then the ammeter showed about 14 volts while it was running. I just tried to crank it again and it just clicked. WTF?
Ok, I had the alternator checked, it checked out good. The battery checked out bad. I put a new battery on it and turned the key, and it still just clicks the starter. I guess the starter is bad. I dunno.
