New owner - electrical help required

Hi all,

Just purchased a 2003 grand cherokee limited 2.7crd here in the UK.

Drives really well but I have found a few issues during my first weeks of ownership and would like help/advice.

Firstly, I have I think an electrical issue in that when I turn the car off and lock up, the clock display (in the radio) stays on, as do the back lights for the electric window buttons. I have already had a flat battery so replaced it but have the same symptoms.

Any suggestions as to where to check?

Also, my fuel gauge is really inaccurate. I first filled it from quarter full and it took nearly £80 to fill. Then I filled it from almost empty and it took only £60 to fill??????


Thanks in advance.

Michael

Also just noticed that most circuits still work with key removed - wipers, windows, radio etc. could this be connected? Michael

Re: New owner - electrical help required

Check if the key can be removed in ACC position, it should not be possible. For now you can solve the problem by looking that it is not in ACC when removing the key.

Re: New owner - electrical help required

Just went to check, key can be removed in any position.
I am turning the key as far as possible before removing it.

Is this pointing to a work ignition barrel? If so, is it an expensive or difficult repair?

Re: New owner - electrical help required

So the key cylinder is the problem. No idea about price, but is easy to change.

Re: New owner - electrical help required

The right position to remove the key is the before last position, then all users are off, besides BCM.
