Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. When you say it won't start, do you mean that when you turn the key to the start position, the engine cranks cranks cranks cranks cranks, but won't fire, or nothing at all happens when you turn the key to the start position?

Just clicks and clicks, the odometer flashes no fuse
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Are the headlights good and bright? If so, do they stay bright, turn off, or get dim when you turn the key to start?

They dim when trying to start
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Sounds like low battery voltage. I know you said that you tried to jump it, but Maybe the jumper cables or ?? has an issue. Do you have a volt meter handy?

I have something like that I can check it
Jeep Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 month ago

Ok, do that if you can. The voltage should be 12.6 volts, and not drop below 11 volts when you crank it. If it goes below that, then take the battery down to your auto parts store and have it tested. Replace it if it fails the test. Most auto parts stores will test it for free.
