Flustered HELP NEEDED!!
 
So 3 days ago my 07 JK decided not to turn, at first I though it might be the battery, so I jumped it. only to turn it off and hour later and it did the same thing. so I proceeded to troubleshoot the terminals. everything in the battery seemed o.k so I took the battery to Auto zone. when I picked up the battery
everything checked ok. so I called a mechanic friend of mine I explained the symptoms to him he said it may be the starter so I took the starter off and had it checked and tested and everything was fine, next was the alternator took it off checked it and everything came back good, every time I turn the key there is no response maybe a click from time to time. everything electronically works and turns on but Im starting to think it maybe something else. It DOES how ever turn on when I plug a jump box to it. It even stayed on for a drive around the block but when i slowed down it died again. CAN SOMEONE OUT THERE HELP ME???

replace the battery

Is it the original battery? If so, I would replace it. Also, the test autozone runs are not always accurate. I had dead batteries in my diesel truck, had the alt. tested, which they said was fine. Replaced both batteries and was stranded a couple days later. Reolaced the alt. and has been good since. I would replace battery, and keep an eye on your charging system gauge, as it could very well be your alt.
