Electrically dead as a door nail, Thoughts?
'02 Grand Cherokee, 4.7...
I drove to work this morning, no issue. Drove it at lunch time, no issue. Went to drive home from work, I was able to unlock the doors with the fob, I got the key in the ignition, slight turn, I hears a small click (not the click of a dead battery, more of an electronic click in the dash), and got nothing when I finished turning the ignition. Everything is dead. Had a buddy try and jump it, it made no difference. I checked the voltage across the battery, 12.8V. I don't have a dome light, radio, absolutely nothing. I can't even lock/unlock the car with the fob anymore. I had to leave it at work, I'll troubleshoot a little more tomorrow, but where do you think I should look? My first thought was bad cell in the battery, but I have absolutely no power getting to any part of the car (I'd think something would work, it just wouldn't have the cranking power). Second thought was a bad tumbler in the ignition switch, but again, I would think I'd still be able to lock/unlock the car. The fact that the fob isn't even working is puzzling me. Thoughts?
