Re: HELP jeep wont start

do u have a spare (sitting around battery?) you can eliminate the battery idea by just hooking it up real quick. i also believe it could be the battery, if not, itll reset anyways after you disconnect it and reconnect it.
gl

edit- itll reset but no guarantee it will stay off ( the icons) if it doesnt stay off then we know its not the battery. or u can test the battery u have in it to see if its creating enough juice.

Re: HELP jeep wont start

thanks guys, i have the battery disconnected now, im going to reconnect it in a few minutes to see if that works. i might go buy a new battery anyway since this one is pretty old. i just hope i dont have to take it to the dealer again.

Re: HELP jeep wont start

Battery is my bet too.. Mine did the same shit last year. Dealer replaced the battery free though.. saves you from buying one out of pocket unless you go with an optima or some other bad ass battery

Re: HELP jeep wont start

you guys are great, i just reconnected the battery and left the interior light on for a min to test it and it died off and the headlights look like candles. im off the sams club to get a battery. i just didnt want it to be the solenoid.

Re: HELP jeep wont start

Couldn't a bad altenator cause the battery to not fully charge? Hopefully it's just he battery but if it happens again in a few days you may need the altenator as well
