Re: Need help jeep wont start

also when your install a sound system dont connect the positive cable to the battery then you wont have to worry about the fuse blowing it the wire touchs any metal .. also why are you running 4 gauge wire its not nessary only when you have a huge system with an amp the it legtly 1000 watts.. it sounds like your amp and subs are sucking up to much juice ive had this happen before to this car i was installing a system on they car couldnt handle the 1200 watt amp.. i suggest either getting a bigger battery or a better am.. also how many subs are you putting in?

Re: Need help jeep wont start

I had this exact same problem after running my system for awhile!

First of all, jump starting with my honda accord V6 = No go. Jump starting with my uncles V8 Ford = instant start up. This jeep discriminates like a little whore, no V8, No care.

And the idle thing, keep it above 1000 with your foot for a few minutes and it should be good. However, chances are your battery are shot! Do what i did, I drove straight to my audio installer and got a new yellowtop installed. $200 but my systems been bumping and my WJ hasn't hiccupped since! *knock on wood* .. good luck bro!

Re: Need help jeep wont start

^^^ I can garuntee your not sucking up to much "juice", you should have no problem running that stereo with 4 gauge wiring..get your battery tested, cant do much other then check that out...

sounds like you may have installed something differently.....keep the rpms high by reving, see if it stays.
