Long story short....My 97 eclipse is across the US at my parents house. I tried to have them start it awhile ago, ended up jump starting the car. While jump starting the car, the wiring harness that slips onto the terminal was arcing. Maybe just the wiring is brittle or breaking before the battery connection. I did do a engine replacement awhile ago, maybe the wiring got bent and is now weak. I did replace the alternator and put in a new battery. Any ideas?
