I went through this a few years back with my '00 with CA Emissions.
Theoretically there are few things that could be causing this. Fuel trims, O2 sensors, exhaust leaks, and the like.
I spent a year checking every thing I could to be sure it was the cat.
Jeep seem to run fine all that time though.
I did not mind spending the money but wanted it to be fixed if I did.
Well turned out it was the cat.
Solved my P0432.
As long as you are not in CA or NY you want the cat for a CA Emissions '00 that is not registered in CA or NY.
It is different then the one you need to get if you are and somewhat cheaper.
I used a Walker one.

I am in NY. I have fixed a Ton of stuff on this thing. Itís my daily for work. I just did the spark plugs last week and it seemed to be running great. I was on my way to the auto parts store to get some coolant to try and flush my heater core again because my heat isnít very hot.

For me it was Walker 52304. Pretty sure for you it would be Walker 81850.
I would double check that I am right about the NY thing.
But sadly pretty sure I am.

Added C gussets while doing my ball joints. Artec c gussets and synergy ball joints. Finishes off my dana 30 with artec truss with Johnny joints, chromoly shafts, lock right locker, 4.10 gears, LCA skids, one ton steering, Solid diff cover, and Bilstein shocks.






All back together

Not sure why my pictures got turned.

Nice setup. Looks like it's about time for some new mud claws.

Do it and get better tires. I ran those on 2 TJs.

I have really liked the mud claws. They have good traction and haven't chunked almost at all. I wish they had more lugs on the sidewall but i have only punctured one in 5 years.

Went to the post office with the crazy holiday traffic everywhere. It was pouring rain and while backing up I felt a thump. I get out and see a new Cadillac behind me. OOPS! He was backing out too. I told him I didn't see any damage and we both went on our way. He was very old and didn't seem too concerned anyway. I guess it would have been a no fault accident. I think he was backing out first though.

So for the past couple mornings my headlights have not worked right away.
Been cold. But when the Jeep warmed up they would work. Sometimes.
I have the headlight harness upgrade in there.
So I finally decided to poke around today.
The relays have clear housings and it looks bad in there.
Moisture, corrosion and whatnot.
So I decided to clean them up a little, hosed everything down with electronic cleaner, and threw some dielectric grease in there.
No joy. So I am like OK no big deal. Not like a drive much in the dark. LOL.
Then it occurs to me that one relay is for high beams and one for low beam.
So I try the high beams and they work. Swap the relays and now the high beams don't work but the low beams do.
So while both relays should be replaced I can get by with just replacing one for the time being.
This is the one that appears to not work anymore.

So everybody says they are regular Bosch 5 pin relays.
The thing is that original relay says 80 amp on it.
Frankly thinking these are from China betting not a real 80 amp.
Tough to see, sorry for the crappy picture, but it does say 12V 80A in the upper right corner.
So I bought this relay cause I could get my hands on it today.

https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...c3nid=IR-27795

It says 30 amp and the schematics match.
And everything works again.

So exactly what Bosch relays are people talking about?
What amp rating should they be?
And so everybody knows on my headlight harness the left is high beams and right is low beams.

And this is probably partly my fault.
I probably should have thrown some Dielectric Grease in there when I originally installed the harness.

You should be OK with the lowly 30 amp relay as it supposedly would take more than 3,000 watts to blow one.

Goes around , comes around .

That is good to know.
I poked around looking at headlight harnesses. The one from Ksuspension appears to use the exact same relays on theirs. Actually it looks exactly like what I bought. Pretty sure I paid $17 for mine. You have to look really closely but it says 12V80A just like mine do.

https://www.ksuspensionfab.com/store...Harness.html#/

This harness on the other hand says 30/40A on theirs.

Wonder why the difference?

Also out of curiosity.
What would happen if the amp rating on the relay was not enough?

If the design is good , the amp rating of the components should be less than that of the harness .
Sams as a fuse .
Of course , finding the cause of the 'blow' should be first .
With today's great quality controls ( Laughable) , it could simply be poor quality unit components .

You lost me there.
Hypothetically if the amp rating on the relay is too low what would blow in the harness.
Would the inline fuse blow that is coming from the battery?
Would the relay just fry?
Would the Jeep burn to the ground? LOL.
Some or all of the above? MLOL
Poking around it appears just the relay will fail and there will be no output of power.
In this case to the headlights.
But I am just guessing cause there is all this tech speak that goes right over my head.
