I found this picture, http://www.wranglerforum.com/attachm...1&d=1302105895
I cut those two wires and tie them together. That took care of the issue for me.

|skyhawkap||The other two things I would look at is your starter relay and the ignition switch module (However, I would start with the safety switch as stated above)|

|tbraun5||No codes, I checked those..... Interested in the pics of the clutch bypass!|

|crisjacof||I just had the exact same issue, check your clutch safety switch, mine was faulty and sometimes it wouldn't let the jeep start, but it would if pushed. There is a connector under the dash that you can jump with a small wire, I found that to be the culprit and removed it from the jeep. I'll post pictures tomorrow morning.|

|Smashbox||Turn you ignition key on and off a few times (3 I think) and see if you get any codes on your odometer|

|bluesky||I would put emphasis on what Bransford asked you...was your battery load tested by someone who knows what they are doing? Awhile back I had my battery tested at Napa and they said it was good, I actually had to argue with them to just sell me a new battery, as I knew I needed one. I threw it in the parking lot and no more charging issues Maybe start with a new battery... it's simple place to start (since you already checked terminals and cables) and a really affordable investment either way.|

|tbraun5||I took starter and battery to autozone and they tested them?|

|Jerry Bransford||How did you check the battery? Was an extended load test performed on it by someone who know what they were doing? Only a load test conducted for a long enough period of time can give an accurate health indication of a battery.|

|tbraun5||I tried that when I checked battery.|

The first thing I would do is remove (not just look at) both battery connectors. Wire brush them so the posts & connectors are bright & shiny clean, then reconnect them & make sure the nut & bolt are tight enough so the connector can't be moved on the battery post by your hands.
Loose/dirty/corroded/worn battery connections are a common cause of that type of problem.

05 TJ won't start
I tried to start my jeep yesterday and it just clicked a few times then wouldn't do any thing. I push started it and made it home. I checked the battery, had starter checked, and replaced the ignition switch. still nothing. You turn the key and every thing is normal, just won't start (doesn't crank). I push started it again, drove 3/4 of a mile parked in the garage and shut it off, now it starts fine????? Any ideas whats going on?
