Lost dash ,signals , wipers and head lights ?

I'm working at a shut down on night shift and just came out to go to my room and I have no dash lights , signals , wipers or head lights . Any one had this happen ? It's been raining quite hard but I can't see that being a problem . Way to wet to look at it now and I got back to my room . The hearter fan works and also the radio and brake lights ..... the doors lock and un lock and the windows work . I think I`ll check for a loose fuse or relay first ....... wierd

Try disconnecting the battery negative terminal for a few minutes.

That seems to fix a lot of electrical/computer glitches on the JK.

Yeah, just like a Windows PC you have to "reboot" your JK sometimes...

Don't laugh... I had a Samsung refrigerator a few years ago that out of the blue would stop cooling the freezer and drop the frig to freezing (high end dual compressor model)... Resetting the digital temp settings would revert back after seconds. So after Samsung had no clue and was going to send someone out after a holiday weekend (when the food is good and destroyed), I unplugged, let it set for a few minutes and plugged it back in. That fixed it. When the local repair guy called to schedule the time to come out told him "never mind, it just needed rebooting." I don't think he believed me, but worked fine as long as I had it after that.

That's why I laughed so hard. It's so true!

I think they need to make some virus software for our Jeeps.
