Just replaced my second clutch slave cylinder yesterday. The jeep sat outside for two weeks while I waited to install the cylinder. After I installed the slave cylinder I went to start the jeep and all I get is a single click. Have tried all the following with no luck.

Charged the battery overnight.
Tried jumping connecting to the battery.
Tried jumping connecting just the positive and negative battery cables.

Tried the alternate key unlock.
Tried starting in 4 low to bypass the clutch lockout.
Tried pulling the starter relay out for 30 seconds.
Banged on the starter with a hammer.

I'm certain the battery is good and it's not the clutch lockout. Anything else to try before I go buy a starter? It's a 2013 JKUR.

Thanks

got a volt meter? if you do, it should read 12.7V if its good. anything below, get a new battery

Have you tried jump starting it? Get a couple of buddies to push with the clutch in, dump the clutch in 2nd or 3rd gear and it should start.

Ya. Forgot. Checked with a volt meter too. Battery is good. Everything is pointing to a starter.

I recently had the same issue. Went through all the checks that you did. Apparently, my anti-theft system was not recognizing the key and translated that into an attempted theft; so it did exactly what it is supposed to do...shut down the engine. Had it towed to a dealership and turns out it is a software glitch. They reprogrammed the computer and all is good once again; took them all of 5 minutes to do. The dealership said this wasn't an isolated thing and that it has happened to other Chryslers, but is not a safety concern so there is no recall. I wrote to Jeep's emergency assistance service and they refunded the cost of the towing.

Hmmm. Anti theft went off when I tried the other key. Still broke. Tried a multimeter and still no problem found.

I'm starting to think it is the keys. Using both keys manually to unlock the car sets of the alarm.

Anyone have any ideas I can try before having Jeep haul it away?

Maybe replace the batteries in the keys.

Maybe the TIPM(fuse box) is acting up.

Had the same issue with my 99 Cobra. The problem was the clutch position sensor. If you disconnected the clutch cable you make have this issue. Basically if the clutch cable is too tight the sensor is in a lockout mode causing the jeep not to turn over. Give it a try.
Thanks

If your Jeep is not under warranty why are you expecting them to pay and threatening them if they don't?

Back to thinking its the starter. Alarm going off when manually unlocking after locking with the remote is normal.

Battery is good, voltage to starter is good. Just here one click from the starter, then nothing.

What kills me is all the diag codes for stuff that don't keep me from driving the vehicle, but nothing when it's broke.

I'm slowly starting to hate my jeep. It's spent the last two winters parked waiting for whether to warm up so I could fix it. Jeep refuses warranty work because I took it off roading.

And now a blizzard and no 4x4. Ugh!
