TJ Starter Wire

I have a 99 tj wrangler 4.0. The starter has a connector for the switch wire. Is it required? Can you just put a regular wire connector in its place? Mine seems to have a problem. Sometimes it wont start and when you wiggle the wire it starts.
Thanks for the help
Dave

Certainly, just make sure the new connector is good quality so it will maintain a good tight connection. And if you're talking about the heavy connection from the battery, make sure the connector is sized to adequately carry the amperes the starter will consume. The control side of the starter solenoid doesn't take much load so it can use lighter connectors.

Thanks Jerry. its the small wire going to the celonoid with the quick disconnect. it looks like somthing important but when i check the volts out of it it didnt seem any different than normal. Just wanted to make sure it didnt have a diode in it or something.

its wireing, you can do it however you want. and to answer your question, yes you can change the connector just make sure you use a good one that can handle the load.

No, it's just regular wiring.
