I am not sure but they probably went to that crappy sigle terminal plug for the small ignition wire that goes to the starter.If so it may have came unplugged.I would check the connections in any case.Start with checking both battery cables at both ends,then the ignition feed to the starter.If they all are tight and test good to voltage then your starter is more than likly bad.

same thing happened to me in my 06, guages would jump around even when the keys were not in the ignition. Check for corrosion of any kind, no matter how insignificant you think it is, it could be your problem. The main thing is that this problem will continue to drain your battery even when not in use. I was on a trail, shut it down for about 15 minutes and had exactly the same thing happen. Don't trust the readings that you are getting on your battery, I replaced the battery and cleaned the cables and have had no problems since.

Being a standard does make a difference.As messing with the spare fuses does affect the clutch switch.To bypass on the earlier models like 03 you had to pull the spare #19 fuse and put it in the spare #20 slot.I also read something about fuse #28 as well so not sure.

Make sure you maintain the cleanliness of the terminals. This weekend my Jeep wouldn't crank and I noticed that battery corrosion had eaten away the shielding around the nearby wiring harnesses. The harness is $1200 so I got some butt connectors and a new piece of wire and repaired the damaged wires. Now it runs like a champ.

Some batteries will test good until you put a load on it. This happens when you have a bad cell. We get this all the time at work.
