    It's time to change my battery. The battery died after I parked the car for 10 minutes with the lights on, then I I noticed significant capacity decrease after jump-starting another car. Anyways, I have read that some people use H8 battery rather than the OEM spec H7 (group 94) batteries for...
  2. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I have a parasitic power bleed that I seemed to have narrowed down. As most, I struggle with electrical, but I think I have started to narrow it down some. What I am looking for is where to go next? Below are the fuses that i have pulled that have stopped the draw on the battery. I have listed...

    Hello, I've got a '99 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I've owned it for a year. The battery drains if left overnight so I installed a separate battery in the cabin and put in a battery switch on the console. It looks super jenky but now I can always start it without a jump. I've torn things apart...
  4. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I accidentally drained my battery last night by leaving my aftermarket heated seats plugged in the power outlet for a few hours. Needed a AC battery charger to jump it back to life. Now, my idle seems quite weak. As if it is about to stall when at idle. Any ideas why this is happening and...

    Hey all, this is my first post and I I hope I'm in the right section. I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 5.2. If I leave it sit for more than 2 days without driving it, it will either be completely dead or at least unable to start. I've done as much as I could think of from videos...

    Hello, So, I've been having a constant battery drain as I drive my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6. I've changed the Starter, Alternator, Battery, and a small negative wire that connects to the frame of the truck (I assume that it is for grounding). Added to the issue, when I use my windshield...

    I'm new to the Jeep world, having just bought a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. I inadvertently bumped the turn signal lever getting out of the vehicle, leaving it on all day. The light was blinking when I came back out, but there wasn't enough juice to start the battery. I guessed that it was the...

  9. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey Guys, Lots of issues with this Jeep. I replaced NSS, Battery, Starter because it would not start. I'm no mechanic, that's for sure. Watched a lot of repair videos and read posts. Previously, when I replaced starter and other parts, the Jeep ran great for 11 days. Then, tried to start...

    Greetings all, I have a 1999 Cherokee XJ Limited. About 182K miles. Always been reliable, until now. In the last month it's developed a battery discharging issue. If you drive it every day, it will start & run fine. However, if you let it sit 2 or more days it's always "click, click...

  14. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    I searched and found a couple other battery drain threads most with no solution, so wanted to share what I found here. If you don't want to read the whole post it turned out to be the multi switch stalk on the steering column that controls headlights. Had a newish battery in my grand cherokee...
