Hey all! I'm having a puzzling problem with my jeep. This is my first Jeep, got it over the summer and have loved it, haven't had any issues until recently. Whenever I try to start it up all the power is killed, and does not return unless I unhook and reconnect the battery.
- Before attempting a start if I turn the key to aux I get full power; lights, radio, interior dome, etc.
- It doesn't attempt to turn over
- I replaced the cable that runs from the battery to the starter
- If I unhook and reconnect the battery I get power again
If anyone knows what's going on it will be you guys! Thanks everyone!
Aftermarket cable ends? Mine did that the other day, removing the cables from the terminal ends, cleaning the cables and terminal with baking soda and water and a small wire brush and reinstalling fixed it. The cables looked great, but apparently had picked up enough corrosion to shut things down.
My ZJ has traction control, I call it my right foot.....
