Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help. Have you had the battery tested? I would remove the battery and have it tested first to see if your dealing with a bad cell in the battery.. If it will start then check the charging voltage and it should be around 14v @ idle.. If the battery is bad I would replace it and retest.. If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!Have a great day,Brad
