Question about 1987 Jeep Wrangler
First, you cannot accurately determine a battery's condition unless it is fully charged, otherwise all test results will be incorrect.
If the battery was in good enough condition to pass testing without a re-charge then it should turn the starter though. You need to check all connections and determine where the power stops. Make sure to verify that the grounds are also good. Begin by testing to make sure or verify that power is getting to the starter (use a volt meter) You should have 12v at the large terminal on the starter and 12v at the small lead next to it when the key is turned to the start position. If you get that, the starter is bad.If you don't, then you need to check the starter relay, neutral safety switch and main fuses in the power distribution center. Ignition switches can fail but not too often. I'd also check to make sure you can turn the engine by hand (with key off) just to make sure it has not locked up.
