2000 4.0. It has had some trouble starting lately. I'll preface this by saying that my battery has been a little lazy, especially on the cold mornings lately (I live in CT).
But the last few days, when I go to start it, sometimes it'll act like its dead; the starter will make click noises, the display will be really dim, etc. But if I turn the key off and try it again, on try number 3 or 4 it'll fire right up like there's nothing wrong with it, and be fine while i'm driving it around.
one time when it was doing this, it started and idled, but none of my gauges worked and it read 'no bus'. turned off, tried it again, and it was fine.
another time, it started and was idly horribly, and again I turned it off, tried it again, and it was fine.
what is this, a bad ignition? bad ground? could a bad battery make it do this intermittently?
