2000 wrangler starter issue

Hey guys, im a new member here i have a rather odd question hoping to get an answer. I live in Maine and we as you know have some cold temps. Anyway for the past few years i have had to replace the starter in my 2000inbox wrangler with a 2.5 . When its cold out say 32 degrees or below i jump in it to fire it up and alls i get is a single click from the solenoid like i have a dead battery, thats not the case. I have delt with this for the past two winters. If i pour hot water onto the starter it starts right up. And it seems to be fine untill it sets over night or if its too cold throughout the day. It did it for the first time this winter today which is weird because temps were extremely cold a few weeks ago and i didnt have an issue till today. I hope someone has a fix. Thanks guys.

Sounds to me like a corrosion problem. Are you sure all the connections are tight and there is no corrosion build up?

Aa far as i know all connections are good, im going to look at it today and go over everything at work. I seem to have to replace the starter every summer when it finally gives out. It just doesnt make sense to me. Its been working fine all winter so far untill the other day after a real warm day here. It was 55 on thursday then it was 12 friday morning when i went to leave and it occured. The only thing i can think of is during that warm spell it turned my driveway to a mud run perhaps it allowed alot of water to get into somewhere. I dont know like i said im going to check more into it today.

So i took a look at the jeep yesterday and i didnt come up with anything. It looks like a brand new starter still. No corrosion on any of the terminals or mothing. It gave me trouble when i first started it in the morning, poured hot water on it waa laa. Didnt bother the rest of the day though, it was in the mid 20s all day so it didnt cool off too much i guess. I dont know why this happens to every starter i put in.

Not this last time unsure of what brand it is im gonna check and see though. 12 degrees this morning and it started just fine, starting to bug me. I have to tear into it this spring when i get another vehicle anyway because i have some frame rottong issues in the rear and some on the tub as well. I will go over everything for sure. Gotta love the shit tgey put on the roads up here, eats a frame in no time.
