08 JK Struck by lightning
I am in need of some serious help. My Jeep was indirectly struck by lighting last night. It was parked under a tree that was struck by lighting and now wont start.
The battery comes on and all gauges appear to work. The radio is fine, as is all the power windows. All the exterior lights working including my Hellas. The starter just doesn't kick in...I worked all day and left the battery unhooked for the day hoping by the grace of god the computer just needed to reset...still no luck.
Inside the house we lost all cable/Internet devices (2 boxes, modem, wireless router), a flat screen tv, the invisible dog fence and a fish tank light lol So
The jeep is having other random issues as the interior lights don't come on when you open the door and the remote entry will randomly not work.
Here is the kicker I am currently living in Martha's Vineyard which is an island with 0 dealers and little options as far as reputable shops.
What do you guys recommend I start with??
Side note: Last night when I parked the jeep I had a 100% mechanically and electrically sound jeep. Not anymore!!
Thanks so much for all your help!
