I'm An Idiot
 
Okay so today as I was leaving work my iPod was dead and I couldn't seem to find my charger. While looking around I noticed the cable for my DiabloSport Trinity in the back and it looked like the same connection for an iPod so I picked it up and it fit. I thought to myself 'oh, awesome, now I don't have to listen to the shitty radio. I'll just use the power that comes from the plug under the dash to charge the iPod'....

DO NOT EVER DO THIS.

I have fried something and almost all of the electronics in my Jeep are now ****ed. But thankfully it's still drive-able, and the iPod is fine too!

It'll be a few days before I get my Jeep back, and hopefully it won't cost more than $1000 to fix it...

lol you arent the first to do this. I actually did it once with no issues, but then someone else tried it and ran into some major issues. I dont recall what they did to get it all fixed. Might be worth searching

Congrats man! Losing $100 still sucks, but way better than spending $1k plus! Did you say exactly what fixed it in the other thread? You weren't the first and im sure you wont be the last to do this :)
