Get an extension cord and cut the female plug off then plug it into the wall and put the bare ends on you battery terminals.

found it


Fuck you guys check shit the hard way. Ask an electrical guy and electrical question.
Do you got a multimeter? If not get one it'll save you hundereds of hours of BS over your life and possibly thousands of dollars. Spend $80 bucks or more on it.
Now armed with your new multimeter set it to 20VDC or whatever setting it is has that is above 12 VDC.
Stab the neg lead into the neg battery CABLE
Stab the pos lead on the pos battery CABLE
Notice how I said CABLE not terminal.
Try cranking over and measure the voltage while doing so. If it drops off to almost nothing it is a bad connection or battery.
Wow that took 20 seconds and no hammer or wrenching.
Next
Put the multimeter leads on the battery CLAMPS and try again
If the voltage stays good then you have a bad connection from the CLAMPS to the CABLES.
If the voltage drops you have bad CLAMPS or BATTERY
Next Connect your multimeter leads to the battery TERMINALS and perform the same test.
If the voltage drops off then you have a bad BATTERY if its stays good then you have a BAD CONNECTION between the TERMINALS and CLAMPS.

If all the above checks good.
Set your wonderful new multimeter your favorite new tool that makes you so smart to the 100 OHMS setting or lower.
Connect one lead to the battery TERMINAL and the other to the ENGINE it should read very close to ZERO not I, I means infinite not 1ohm.
(Anything less than 5 OHMS is good)
If its bad replace or take apart and clean your engine battery ground cable and check again.
Next. Perform the same test but from the battery TERMINAL to the CHASSIS aiming for the same results (less then 5 ohms) and replace or clean as needed.
If all these basic very quick one beer tests check out ok then its time to move on.
Using your multimeter again set it the 20VDC setting climb under the truck (now its time to get a bit dirty) and connect one lead to the main POST on the STARTER MOTOR and the other on a good CHASSIS GROUND and check the VOLTAGE while attempting to crank.
If it falls off then you have a bad connection at the POST cus we already know its good at the BATTERY cus we tested that didn't we.
If its good then we have a bad STARTER.
And done! Diagnosed. No hammers no wrenches and only one beer in. You'll have that many more to enjoy now and revell in your electrical supremecy.

Maybe it just needs to be hit with a hammer.

the jeeps are bad for the starters give the starter a few good smacks and see if it tries to crank and the multifunction park safety switch is bad for gumming up and losing contacts. Jump the starter relay and see if it tries to crank
