If it will not crank with a jump then it is not the battery at all. Who tested the starter? Usually you can take a screw drive and place it on the solenoid and get spark which will tell you it is working. Would not be the alternator as it would start or at least crank but not stay running.It is an automatic. My battery doesn’t require water. When I just turn on the battery all the lights, fan and radio work. Once I start to crank it they all go silent/dark. I got a brand new battery from a place put it in and still the same ole thing. I was able to return said battery. Next step would be starter, but it was checked and it checked good. Thanks for any advice so far.

My money is on something electrical and from a computer standpoint. Ignition coils or switch perhaps? Be sure to check ALL of the relays and fuses. You usually have a panel under the drivers side dash and another on the other side of the firewall in the engine compartment along with relays.
Try to not focus on the headlights in the second video.
I had an 84' Chevy truck that ran through starters. About once every six months it would go bad and need replaced. To this day no idea why? The good thing was it was always under warranty and easy as could be to change out (unhook the power cable and three easy bolts) with easy access.It could’ve been just the solenoid. On my vehicle the starter sits under the oil filter and dip stick. It drips a little oil but nothing to write home about. He just suggested every couple weeks wiping it down with a rag.
I'd say it did as well.Well I’m back. The past 3 months or so I noticed my car was leaking something. It was just the size of a quarter over the length of a workday. It didn’t look like oil or smell like coolant. I wiped off underneath and couldn’t find anything obvious. Well on Wednesday it happened. I was taking my son to weight conditioning when steam came pouring out of the right side of my hood. I get home and see a huge puddle on the ground which was coolant. I thought I could smell it earlier in the day but it wasn’t overwhelming. Took out the million bolts and screws and found a cracked radiator. Replaced it no issues. Well when I turn the car on (2000 Jeep Cherokee) it had an extremely rough idle, and I could hear a noise like nitrogen leaking out of joint. Took me a while but I found a silver barbed fitting on the right side of the manifold that had nothing hooked to it. I put my finger over it and the car stalled right away. Tried t again with my finger over before my wife started it and it ran fine. Bought vinyl vacuum cover pack ($3.99), usedbthe one I needed and problem has gone away for today. I’ve never heard that before and the fitting looks brand new so I’m assuming it had a cover on it prior to the other day.
