2 questions, Locks, and LED lighting
Hey everyone. I am new to the JK world. I had a 03 TJ before. My 1st question is I have a 2010 sport with manual door locks, previous owner installed the astro start system and must have installed an actuator in the drivers door for the unlock feature to work with the astro start. I washed my jeep about a week ago and drove it all over town all week, NO PROBLEMS. This morning I got up to go to the gym and my remote would not unlock the door, My key would also not turn in the lock. The temps outside are the same as it has been all week, just freaken cold. After fiddling with the key for a while it finally turned enough to unlock the door. Any idea why and how to prevent this?
Question 2 is the previous owner installed a blue LED strip below the climate control knobs. It is on the bottom of that lip that sticks out right above the switches and power slots. They powered this so it is constantly on while driving the Jeep. At night this is extremely annoying. Its also to cold out to be taking my dash all apart to find out how this is wired so I can remove it. It will have to wait till spring. Can I do anything to get this removed, such as cutting the wire from the strip and removing the lights or covering the lights with something so its not glowing while I am driving.
I would love your opinions on what to do.
