My 93 V8 ZJ completely dies when I try to start it. I turn the key, "CLICK", then nothing. No power, zip zilch, nada.

When I diconnect the negative battery terminal, I get the flashing lights and security idiot light inside. I "unlock" the doors with the remote, and then it starts just fine.

Anyone have ANY idea of what this can be? The battery, alternator, and starter are all good.

TIA.

What I would do is check the B+ battery cable and see if it has any corrosion or "pregnant" spots in it where the wire is all bulged out. Verify that both terminals/posts are clean .... Also check the post on the battery. Batteries of today are plastic inside around the post so even though it may look fine...it could be internally broken. Do this for both terminals and if anything looks like its not right - replace it. Up to and including buying a new battery.
