I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler sport 6 speed, manual, with a soft top. I have had the doors off, put the doors back on two weeks ago. Vehicle started fine, drove fine, radio worked fine, turning signals worked, brake lights worked, interior lights worked. Everything worked fine with no indication of impending issue.
Friday afternoon I drove to Fizzolis on 54th and Wadsworth from my home in Lakewood. I parked out front, went inside and grabbed some dinner. Was inside for about 20 minutes. I came out to the Jeep opened the door and got in, no indication that there was an issue. I put the key in and went to start the Jeep. It made one crank and then clicked. Almost like I let out the clutch. I turned the Jeep to off took the key out put the Jeep in neutral. I went to start the Jeep again and it does one single click then nothing.
I repeated the process for about 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes was up it was at the point where the Jeep wouldn't even click when attempting to start. Also the lights wouldn't turn on, the radio wouldn't work, and nothing was working. I assumed it was the battery was dying or dead.
I have the stock battery from it and it has been in the vehicle since new. I figure the battery is dead or too weak to start it.
Tracked down someone inside that would let me sit with my battery connect to their vehicle via jumper cables.
Left the Jeep on it for 20 minutes. The lights work, and the radio work I also have interior lights. I attempted to start again but only a single click each time I turn the key.
Off to look at the jeep again while I am working. updates will follow.
