Question Starting problems.

Alternator and battery are fine.

Yesterday, i installed a subwoofer. Testing it with the engine OFF, everything worked. When I tried to start it everything went blank, and starter didn't click.


In order to start the car, I have to Jump it.

I haven't checked fuses. but i don't have a manual to know what is what. =\

Perhaps you have some sort of bad ground with the new add? If you un do the speaker stuff will the jeep start?

oh sorry i didn't mention that the subwoofer is not in the Jeep nor are ANY of the Cables.

I tested it after i pulled the power line and got nothing. as of right now i have pulled everything out but its going to be a pain to put the alternator back in. =\

UPDATE:

I unplugged the CD player all together, and still nothing from the engine.

The starter clicks once and then no turnover

ur saying batt. is fine.. so i dont know what to say.

the only thing that comes to mind is that running the subs and system with the car off, obviously drains the batt. and u would have to jump it. after that initial junmp it should be fine

Turns out the battery had a bad cell, however i didn't not find this out until the 3RD time testing the battery. =\
