No idea, check the wires in the drivers front door boot to start with and go from there. Passenger side may have broken wires also. I havent found a broken wire in the rear boots yet and i have been doing this for a long time.

Platinum has less of a warranty than the gold and costs more..........

When we started carrying the platinum agm it had the same 3yr warranty but didnt have the pro rate like the gold battery or titanium depending on where you buy it but the new platinum agm was supposed to meet all of the requirements for todays newest electronics in the new junk manufacturers are making

Same here..

The Duralast Platinum are rebadged Deka Intimidators, which are pretty good batteries.

The Sears batteries I believe are similar or the same as Odyssey which are really good batteries too. Probably a little better than Dekas but for the extra cost to performance ratio, it wasnt worth it to me on this particular application.

Dekas are made by East Penn. Very solid batteries. I've had a Duracell brand AGM (went battery shopping at West Marine, lol) in my ZJ for a little over 2 years now. It's also an East Penn build and works great. Odyssey (Sears Diehard Platinum AGMs) makes great batteries too. Exide and JCI are ok, but IMO, East Penn and Odyssey are a cut above.

Back on topic, I changed the oil in mine, found a worn u-joint in the rear DS (ordered up 2 new 5-1330x Spicer Life joints) and washed it.

Ordered my Windshield washer pump (front) only for tomorrow. My power Antenna stop going down, it only stayed up. Figured out it was the nylon tape/cable inside broken into 2 pieces, I will do a write-up on that. Found out my rear hatch switch is burnt up, I will have to replace that as well. I am really getting a LOVE vs. HATE for this thing.

Finally some light pictures. The fog lights were adjusted a bit higher after these pics, but my iPhone wouldn't pick it up well on the rd. also my low and high beam shots. I can turn off the headlights and drive with my fogs just fine. Which is what I wanted for the white out snow conditions since the dichroic coating on the lenses, provides a low-glare yellow light.. Also I can upgrade these from 55w to 100w, which I'll probably do in the next few weeks.

They look good nice and bright. Thata about the way that my rack mounted lights look going down the road but my outside 2 are pointed out towards the side of the road and the 2 middle ones arw pointed straight ahead
