Possessed Jeep.....TIPM issue?? Lights, horn wipers, etc....
I've got an ’08 JK with about 15k miles on it. Never had a problem with it until today....suddenly, as I’m driving through my parking garage at work the “ESP BAS” light comes on and the Jeep completely dies. I push it aside and try several more times to get the engine to turnover- I got nothing. 10 min later, I try it again and it fires up and runs perfect. I drive it 3 blocks and as I’m sitting at a dead stop in a parking spot with the engine on and in park, the horn, wipers, lights, and washer fluid come on simultaneously and stay on until I pop the hood and jiggle a few relays (believe they go to my HID lights) next to my fuse box, aka the TIPM Totally Integrated Power Module, is that right?- then everything shuts off. I fired it up and drove it back to work with no problems. WTF?
Obviously, the best thing to do is bring it to a dealership under warranty- but, I’ve got a Hesco blower on it and I’m a bit hesitant to bring it to a dealer so they can give me 1k excuses of why my Hesco set up would cause this- and then mark my warranty as “void”
Any ideas on what this could possibly be? Any thoughts/suggestions on how to approach a dealership?
