No power to my 2005 wrangler

help, me out folks. I went to goto lunch today. I turned the key I had a 1/2 of blip of the starter and then nothing... nothing at all. I do not have light, radio alarms...ect. The only light I have is the under hood light nothing else. The gauges are acting all weird flipping around and stuff.. please help me out. I pulled the power wire on the battery for now.

Check your battery, battery terminals and connectors first.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

How old is your battery? Sounds exactly like how my 06 behaved when my battery gave out. Trip to Sears for a Diehard Platinum P-4 and all was good.

You have an under hood light...........that works?!


But seriously, pull off both battery cables, clean and replace and see if it comes back.

Is there a main relay that could have died?

Mine works at the car wash, after I spray it with water, never any other time....
