So it all started when I broke the remote for my alarm during a concert, no biggie... I set it on valet mode and was good for about a year until had some problems with wires accidentally getting kicked and arming the alarm again at which point I had a mechanic take the alarm out. Unfortunately they didn't do this, all they did was set it on valet mode, take out the alarm sound, and remove my switch. Which was fine, until I left my lights on overnight one night, draining the battery and arming the alarm which was supposed to be removed. So I took matters into my own hands and manually removed the alarm myself. Unfortunately; in the process, the clip on the wire connecting to my starter broke and I just had to put it on and hope it stayed on. Which it did for a while. Now here's the current problem: I was running fine for about a month or two until yesterday I couldn't start the Jeep. I have plenty of battery power, lights work, radio works, etc. I push started it down my driveway, rode around my cul de sac, parked and turned it off and back on several times and was fine to go out for the night. Used it to go out, go to work, aaaaaand then today after lunch I go to start it and *click* no start. I make sure the wire is connected securely to my starter and then try again. No luck. So I push start it again and turn it off. No luck. So now I've had to push start it a few times today and not wanting to have to keep doing so or getting stuck somewhere, I am stuck w/ out my Jeep
A friend of mine told me to just hit a junk yard and cut out a new wire to connect to my starter which will clip in and hope that works, but I can't get to a junk yard tonight so figured I'd ask the wrangler forum community for some advice. Any ideas?
