04 TJ 4.0L is having problems starting this morning because of the temp I assume.

It's ~10 degrees here in Oklahoma and when I went outside to start it (both at home and to leave work) the ignition key turns but nothing happens. Lights come on, radio plays etc, just no starter turning and no clicking or anything.

After a few minutes of waiting and mindlessly turning that key it eventually kicks over... Anyone have ANY guess as to what is going on?

By the way, I had ZERO problems last week when it was the same temp around here.

Take off your battery connections and clean them with a terminal cleaning tool...pick one up at any parts store for five bucks or less. Reconnect and see if it starts better. Problem like you describe is usually a cable or connection problem. Start there and then go to the starter.

I agree with TexasT...sounds like a bad/dirty cable or cable connection to me.
