so ive been having problems with my 97 grand cherokee, and i need to drive it 500 miles loaded with stuff back home.
i tried to start it the other day, and it almost didnt start, but i gave it some gas and it was fine. then when i got to where i was going, i shut it off and all the lights died. sounds normal, but the lights arent all suppose to die, like the headlights stay on for a while and stuff. it acted like the battery was dead.
then 10 minutes later the lights came back on and it started fine. then it did it again one more time, and i drove it back to campus and it was fine except all the lights and dashboards were flickering.
now, its running fine, the battery is fine and the alternator is fine. i had those checked at autozone. the only thing now is that the computer thing...the screenthat says a door is opened or when i need an oil change.. it keeps flashing. whole thing on and off, plus th etime keeps getting messed up. and i dunno why
98 5.9, Platinum 4.5 RE SF all adjustable arms, RE Monotube Shocks, Carolina front drive shaft, Pro Comp Extream Alloys Stryker's, 285/75/16 BFG's KM2's,Stage 1 rock sliders,Confer roof rack,Warn XD9000i winch, 3" Kolak exhaust system, Addco front swaybar and lot's more goodies.. 79 CJ5 AMC 304 33x12.5 Pro Comp X-tream mud tires on 15x12 MT classics. 3" lift.
Mine did that right before my battery died. So you either have a loose or dirty connection at the battery terminals or your battery is about to die, regardless of what Autozone told you. Sometimes they have an intermittant dead cell in them.
