Ok so made it home. Found a blown 15 amp fuse and replaced it with all I had on me at the time; a 30 amp. Alternator began charging again, and the speedo started moving again. But now the speedo is sluggish- it lags really bad and isn't responsive at all. Is this because of the heavier fuse that I used or is there now another problem? Anyone care to give me a crash course on what could cause this?

cheers

Mine wasn't bad at all, Mine was all one piece so I took the tire off, then the 2 bolts that hold the caliper, then there are 3 bolts that hold the hub on I took those out and the axle nut and removed the hub/wheel bearing assembly and replaced it with the new one and put it all back together it was about 45 min including buying the parts

Do you know which 15 amp fuse blew, IGN LPS? The alternator fuses from the stock PDC setup are 2 50amps in parallel with each other. I don't know if you have a sensor or a cable but one of those may be going out. I would check the continuity of the wiring to the cluster if you have a sensor type. If there is corrosion on any of the contacts or not properly seated, resistance will be created causing sluggish reactions if nothing at all. I would, as I'm sure you know, place a new 15 amp back in its place, with the whole fire, death, doom thing. If it blows the 15 amp again then you need to investigate why it's getting the higher amps into the fuse to begin with. The higher amp fuse, being designed differently, could, as it heats up, cause a higher resistance as it designed to run hotter than it's lower amp brother. Also your fuel pump is run off that IGN LPS fuse, so maybe see if that kicks in right away when you cycle the key. Hope that helps some.

The first few times I ordered from them, I just told them I was a paying member(my membership just ran out, waiting to renew) and that was it. After like 4 or 5 times they just put it on my account so it automatically does it now even if I order online

Is always easy to forget, I replaced the radiator, thermostat, water pump, temp sensor, and a few other things in my wifes car. Then I realized it was over heating due to a lose hose. DOHHHHH. *bang head on desk*.

love my jeep

Took it out on lunch break



Noticed I have a hesitation if I punch the throttle. Drives normal otherwise, maybe even a little peppier. Any ideas?

I think its the elephants trunk that's causing the hesitation.

The elephants trunk has been there for over a year now though and has saved me a few times already, so its not going anywhere lol besides, I noticed no difference in power, good or bad, after installing the snorkel.

It didn't blow one of the under dash, labeled circuits. I checked them all and they were all fine, including IGN LPS fuse. This morning I replaced the blown fuse with the correct amperage one.
Here's a pic of the block that contained the fuse that blew...


And here's my main block


I believe my speedo is cable driven. I'm still confused as to how it would become sluggish and unresponsive at the same time the fuse problem cropped up. It was working fine earlier yesterday so I'm fairly certain it's not corrosion, build up, or a busted cable or anything like that.

I'm also pretty sure that the reason that fuse blew is because it's some how tied to the circuit that I wired my fan into. I'll be moving the fan to it's own, dedicated circuit today to prevent future issues.

Still confused on the speedo though. :
Thanks and,
Cheers
