This is quick overview of my situation.
Jan 2011 - Bought Jeep used, with the RES.
Feb 2012 - Added the brand new RER and Lockpick
Oct 2012 - Decided to put hardtop on for winter. While waiting on my roommates arrival to help lift the hardtop, the battery died from listening to music. Installed the hard top and jumped the Jeep off. First time the MyGig wouldn’t power up. Noticed the fuse was blown and replaced the fuse, but immediately blew again. Obviously a ground somewhere. After removing the radio and examining, there was a small place rubbed on the Lockpick that was grounding. I removed the Lockpick and replaced the fuse and the system worked fine. Within the next few weeks, the MyGig would sometimes power up, sometimes wouldn’t. Sometimes after powering up, it would die randomly. This continued until I found out about pulling the J13 fuse. I pulled it and it would work fine for a little while and go back out. Then one day, it decided to stay on for about a month. In the past 4-6 weeks, even if I remove the J13 fuse and replace it, the system will still not power up. I still have the original RES and the Lockpick. Should I try installing either of them to see if it works?
You're not the First to Run the Battery down with the Music.....lol...not sure why the Wrangler can't handle it...Never had a Vehicle Die so easy and fast...
I had similiar happen with one of my RER units, battery was at the dying point and went to start it and half way thru the start, Battery Died. Mygig didn't like that, Also had/have Lockpick....1st,
Chrysler products have and still have issues with Electrical, Starter clicks, Gauges going crazy etc....they don't have a protection system to protect devices like the
Computer in our Dash with a Spinning HD and when the MyGig is on, running and the Battery Dies Instantly at that moment or even if there is little power left, as soon as you turn the key,
their design causes Hell. On MyGig it's the same as using your Desktop, no power backup, and you pull the plug while the HD is running, busy etc....Never good....
Try putting RER in without LockPick, Pull Neg Battery cable before starting...see what and how it does and also do alot of checking to see that the Fan in the Unit is running...when you turn key off and the RAP system turns everything off, or make it do it,
The MyGig will still run after all this, and listen for Fan til it shuts down. The MyGig runs even when you haven't turned the key or even put it in the Ignition.
Test this: after Jeep has sit for around 20/30 mins...do it where it is real quite and as you open the door, try to see if you can hear the Mygig make some sounds.
Everytime the door is opened, the unit wakes up etc. If you want to stop this during some other testing, just unplug one door, leave open so you can be in near the dash to hear, and if you are going to be opening the door alot, unplug both doors so the Mygig won't come on and go off etc...
I def would try unit without Lockpick and see if fan is working before you put other unit back in...I will try to help ya all i can and send anything that may help ya....
