Is it The Alternator?!
I bought a Jeep today and it started up first try when I test drove it. Paid for it, drove to a
restaurant, came out, it started fine. My husband said he MAY have left the lights on while
we were eating, but he can't be sure. Still, it started no problem there.
Decided to put some gas in it (it was not low but we live an hour away) wouldn't start.
Got a jump start and as soon as the cables were removed, it died. All the accessories
were still working. Eventually, it would not even crank, it was clicking.
I had to leave the bloody thing at the gas station.
YAP its alternator. you can also check the battery cables.
The battery terminals looked pretty cruddy, to be honest. I know the Jeep was sitting, un-started, while it was for sale. The only thing, driving from the restaurant to the gas station, my husband put it in 4-wheel drive to go over a grass verge -for fun- and now he thinks he's destroyed the whole vehicle. :)
clean the terminals, have the alt check..... and a grass verge wont destroy the vehicle;
Yeah, I know, lol. He thought he killed the engine. Thanks for your help!
keep me posted, if thats not the fault we can take it from there.
It was the alternator. Thanks so much for your input. :)
