Okay, I've had a really odd problem with 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Starting. I bought it 3 years ago and had issues with it starting ever since. It started as once every couple of months and it'd click once. let it sit, a few minutes then it'd start up fine with no issue for months maybe even a year. The last week it's been an issue starting all the time. The first thing that happened was the driving home the radio, wipers, blinkers all stopped functioning. I pulled over and turned the car to ACC and the radio powered back on and wipers continued working again. I restarted the car and and again nothing from radio, wipers, windows, or blinkers. Drove home pulled the key out and everything continued functioning like the car was on. When it stopped down pouring I went back outside to take a look and see if it was working correctly. the battery had completely drained. I jumped it and got the quick click click click click but no start. Jiggled some wires, tapped on the starter, and it started no problem, turned off started again no problem. I replaced the ignition switch because it was a cheap fix that seemed to be able to cause this, particularly the electronics only working in ACC and not on RUN. drove around to recharge battery. Next day turned the key and one click. tried jumping it again and wouldnt jump right away but did after about 20 minutes. drove around for an hour to make sure if it was charging it would be. Tried restarting and click. jumped it and click. waited 30 seconds and then it started no problem. turned off and then on 3-4 times. Pulled the cables off and then started it 3-4 more times with no issues.
I'm just trying to figure out what could cause these symptoms. Also, I had a third party remote start system installed about 2.5 years ago I didn't know if some issue with the starting system wires being crossed or the like could do this. I figure its got to be one of the following but it seems like one of the symptoms would rule each these out
Any Other Ideas? any advice to rule these out?
