I have major jeep problems please assist

I have a 98 jeep wrangler sport, 6cyl. It ran fine and then one day just stopped running all together.... So i try to start it and nothing happens no noise no crank, nothing. So i checked wireing everything chekcs out fine, but sometimes when i turn the key dash lights do not come on so i play with the battery get them to come on and try to start the jeep, i hear clicking from the A.S.D fuse the relay near the fuel rail, and a kind of long clicking/buzzing noise coming from the box near the horn, i believe its the evap sensor. So i replaced the batter, the starter, the starter relay fuse, the A.S.D fuse plus checked all other fuses. The jeep still will not even try to start, but if i push start it it will run and stay running until i turn it off and then will not start again until i push start it once again. It gets spoark to all plugs i do not see anything that is grounding out, i checked all fuses, wire connection, even the clutch switch... everything seems fine. Also if i push down on the positive post on the battery i can feel vibration through the evap relay and the round connector near the fuel rail, as well as hear clicking from various fuses & relays on both sides of the engine bay.... i amd 100% stumped everything i can think of that makes sense is cast aside because if i push start the jeep it will run perfectly fine and will stay running. SO if anyone has anything or possibly had this same problem please email me or post back EMAIL: SatanicGoat@hotmail.com thank you in advance

It almost sounds like your battery is shorted. You said if you push down on the positive side of the battrey you hear buzzing? MAy even be a ground issue. I would opt for getting your battery tested. I know that you just replaced it but I have recieved a bad battery before. Do you have any corosion inside your cables? Under the insulation?
The reason it runs when you push start it is because you are running on your altenator.
Get that checked and let us know.

First check all connections at the battery and the starter and make real sure everything is good and tight and is clean with no corrosion.

sorry i posted before reading it all.but the part about hearing all that when you push the post down on the battery sounds fishy.I still say you have a connection problem right there,put the old battery back in and see if that still happens if so replace that cable from the starter to the battery.

Def sounds like battery/battery connection issue to me. but I've been wrong before.

If the cables look worn at all replace them.

I know you replaced eveything but I think it is the battery..or the cables....Get a set of battery cables and try to jump start it....obviously it is running off the alt when you push start it so the problem is the Battery, the starter or the wires between them.
Let us know what you find.

Sure sounds like a connection problem to me also. I check or go ahead and replace both battery cables.

Clean all you connections and replace the batt cables. I'd personally be suspect of a shorted starter. That is one of the 1st things I'd go get checked out.
