|Triple88a||Is it manual? Could a curroded clutch switch.. I know a person that had this happen.. you need to step on the clutch to start but if its a bad switch it would click and disconect and click again and distonect.. sounds just like bad battery....|

jeep won't start
I had a starting problem Mine would almost start like it was cold but that was all.
I found a broken spark plug, near the top of the plug, on the porson (white stuff), When i replaced it the jeep started right up.
It was only craked and not completely broken.

I'll 2nd or 3'rd the Starter as the the trouble. Starters usually give warning before they go....like you said you had been getting some No Starts/Starts for a while.
I'll assume your Jeep is a TJ not a 1992 YJ........either way the Starter/Solenoid are one unit, So Pull it out take it to nearest autoparts store to test it, then replace if neccessary.

|whitebuffalo||turn on your headlights, if the lights go dim when it wont start, its battery/connection problem. if they stay at full bright and no start, look for a relay or solenoid|

I had the same problem with my first jeep. I replaced the solenoid. That fixed the problem.
Good luck getting going again.

|mud707||I'm not sure but does a 92 have a solenoid on the fender or on the starter. my cj always gives me problem and hat is usually what it came down to.|

|Mudweiser||I carry a battery load tester for that problem. Takes about 10 seconds to figure out if a battery is drained..or dead dead. I used to run into the clicking problem alot, but i cut the cables off mine and run top post tractor terminals on it now due to alot of accessories needing power. Side posts are plum horrible or loosing contact as well as the cheapo top posts. Usually its not the connection from the terminal to the battery, its the wire to the terminal. Dont confuse a bad connection with starter problems. My starter is picky about how much voltage will or wont engage the bendix. Course it's usually full of mud, scared to clean it cuz it might stop working or fall off|

|amerijeep||It's probably not important to your problem, but do you have a YJ or TJ. I figured one or the other was a typo.|

|Odhinn||could be a starter, or a weak cell in the battery. If the battery has a weak cell it will charge fine but will discharge fast under a load. might even be a corroded terminal connection.|

'92 TJ wont start, makes fast clicking nose
My jeep has been starting and not starting for about a month now. I turn the key, all my lights come on, and it wont start. Sometimes when it in and out of gear and hold the key in the start position, it will start. And sometimes I turn the key, all the lights will come on and it will just make a fast clicking noise. It was a new battery about a year ago and the battery gauge indicates it is charging at 14 amps. I know there are a million things that could be wrong with it, but I have a $50 credit at the shop and would like to come in there with some ideas. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
