    Own and drive any brand of vehicle for long enough, and you'll end up needing one sooner or later. A battery boost or jump-start, that is. An empty battery in your car can come from far too many reasons, from a battery nearing the end of its life to somebody accidentally leaving the dome light...

    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...

    I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 recently I have been having issues with the battery going dead. If I don't start my jeep for longer than 6 hours and drive around it goes dead. You can probably imagine my frustration when I try to go to work in the morning or leave work in the afternoon...

    I'm not a gearhead guy and my 86' Wagoneer is only my second vehicle so I want to be honest about my ignorance of automotive repair. I do like figuring problems out and repairing myself so I want to learn. Last month I left my dome light on overnight and of course my battery died. I jumped it...

    My old battery was old, and would barely start my jeep. I went to firestone and got a new one, but after installing it there was no power. All of the connections were good, so I gave it a jump. As soon as I started driving around, the check gauges light came on and the battery voltage was...

    My girlfriend has a 2009 Wrangler Sahara. She drove it today, started up fine, then parked it at home in the garage. When she went to start it again, it just clicked like it had a dead battery. She said she hadn't left the lights on. She lives about 100 miles from me, so I wasn't a lot of help...

    Hello, I've had my '97 TJ 4.0L 6i since I could drive and never thought that an electrical problem could occur in such a simple machine. But here are the symptoms: Interior lights do not turn off with doors closed and keys out of ignition, I have already replaced the alternator (it was the...

    I didn't drive anywhere for 12 hours, nothing was left on. When I went to start the engine it wouldnt turn over or crank at all, as if the battery was dead. I had my girlfriend try to jump it with her honda element. We left it running and after about 5 minutes we tried again. It wouldn't...
