Wont start
 
Hey I need help!!!
The jeep doesn't start. I just replaced the battery a few months ago. I tried to roll it down a hill and pop the clutch and nothing. Not even an almost start. All lights and electronics work fine. No clicking or engine turn over. Anybody know a solution to this? ..besides taking to a shop.
Thankyou

Well, that eliminated the starter anyways. It is too hard to diagnose with just that symptom.

Actually, I just banged on the starter a few times with a hammer and it started right up. I don't know why I didn't do that in the first place

Wonder why popping the clutch didn't work then. Your starter shouldn't matter in that case. Did start to suggest solenoid though. Sure you may not have tugged on positive wire?

Ive heard a bad ground causes this issue, you most likely wiggled the ground wire while banging away with that hammer and gave it proper connection.
