Strange '05 Problem
I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (Hemi) and something strange happened to it today, so I’m interested to know what you all think it may be. This afternoon when I went out to the car, the alarm was going off. The garage is a little ways away from the house, so I don’t know how long it had been going off, but I was out there at 11 pm the night before and it was quiet, then this morning / afternoon we had a big thunderstorm, so it could have started anytime. Anyway, when I go to start it, it makes a rapid clicking sound from under the hood. It sounds to me like the starter, but I’m not sure. Also, it says “D__ TEST Complete” (can’t remember the other 2 letters) in the dashboard display, then says “Service Electronic Brake System.” I put a battery charger on it to see if the battery was low (even though the lights / air come on when I turn the key) and it seems to be at least ½ charged, so I don’t think it has anything to do with the battery (Which has never been changed).
[Edit] Just went back out and checked on it and it seems the battery is low - now showing at about 25%. When I turned the key the rapid clicking didn't happen initially, but the "Engine Malfunction" light came on and stayed on, along with the same "Service Electronic Brake System" message.
Any help would be greatly appreciated…
