Thanks Frank. Turns out that the pcm module is going bad. Gotta get one and oh the head is leaking now! Me and my mouth. Will get it fixed as soon as weather allows.
I just disconnected the battery and re connected it after a minute and symptoms went away My son drove it for a week before it acted up again . He says he saw vapor coming from the head on the right side weather is too cold wet and messy to do anything but park it.
What happened first was I started the gc and it immediately lost all power lights windows starter dash lights everything. Thought I had blown the main power fuse(s) well I didn't find one anywhere. during my search for a definitive fault I came across a posting with similar problems. they solved the problem by resetting the pcm simply removing power from the jeep and then reapplying the power . I did this and viola it worked .. My question now is should I replace the pcm at this point?
