2007 Starting trouble

Hi everyone! I have a 2007 wrangler X manual shift that is having starting trouble. It has 44,500 mi.. Turn the key and "click". The dashboard lit up like christmas. Automatically assumed it was the starter and replaced it. I push started it to get it to the shop. Today more problems! The clock is also resetting on the radio.

Pull the battery and have it tested. while you have it out, clean the connectors and the terminals with a wire brush and make sure that you have eliminated all corrosion. Any amount no matter how insignificant it may seem can cause your battery to drain. There are no early warning signs. It works and then it's dead. when you replace it make sure that the cables are tight enough that you can not move them at all with your bare/gloved hands.
