Helppppp!!!!! Electrical Disaster

went to the track the other night, about a 2 hour drive. Got there and made my first pass on motor 12.94. parked the jeep and got ready for a pass on spray, in a pinch i wired my bottle warmer to the rear power outlet. i checked pressure and all was where i wanted it so I threw in the 25 cent fan mod and pulled my abs fuse and hit the pit, pulled to the tree purged the lines and made my pass 12.32 at 111 mph. I parked and let it cool down for a bit and then hopped back in to improve my time, ass soon as I made it in the line I noticed my heated seats were burning me up but the switch was not indicating they were on but anyways i pulled to the tree staged, purged and wot! half way down my dash lit up like the tree i just left from, warning lights everywhere and my radio cut on and high beams on and off needles bouncing back and forth and i ran a 13.43 with the 125 shot which didn't seem to spray in. After I parked I had to pull the 40 amp fuse from under hood to get the seats to not burn. The jeep acted up the whole ride home and still has been for the last two days, im riding around with the seat fuse pulled. this after noon my friend used star scan and it shows heated seat module "one wire OPERATION" CAN BUS B codes for over head electronics, radio, park assist, seat memory, heated seats ...... all sorts of stuff even he is lost. Anyone have any kind of clue on where to start to find the issue?

Did you check all the other fuses to see if any of them have popped? I would disconnect the battery and let the system discharge for a bit and reconnect. See if anything changes. Another starting point could be the bottle warmer may be drawing too much and causing some funky things to happen...

Re: Helppppp!!!!! Electrical Disaster

All fuses are good and all relays seem to be working properly. I unhooked the warmer and left batter disconnected for an hour but still acting up. When we used star scan and cleared the code for the seat Warmers it fixed the passenger side but the drivers seat is still burning even with the ignition off when seat fuse is in. I'm riding around with the fuse pulled so no seat functions and rear windows not working. I never would have thought they would even be fused together. Today the guages didnt spike, no crazy lights but park assist still out.
