2010 with a dead battery
 
We picked up a 2010 WK HEMI with 15k miles on it about a month ago and have put about 1000 miles on it since. Tonight we went out and when we got back in the damn thing was dead. Click.

We got a jump and drove home with a CEL. I also noticed that the ECO indicator wasn't appearing on the dash too.

This thing has cost me more in maintenance and stupid shit than either of our Wranglers that we have had for two and three years. Is this normal or did I buy someone's headache?

Yes yes I know. I didn't complete my thought before I posted. Lol! Watching tv and posting = poor choice! :)

I am more concerned with the other stuff like the mds not functioning and the transmission concerns which I added tithe first post.

Sorry.

When the battery on our jeeps have low voltage a lot of the electronics tend to freak out.

What is the code for the CEL that came up?

EVIC - To display codes, Turn your key on and off three times without starting the vehicle and at the end of the third you should either get the code(s) or "DONE".

Thanks. Been trying it after following the directions from WKjeeps. No luck at all. I'm just about ready to push this thing down a hill. Lol

Lol there are many times I want to hulk out on mine too. Worse comes to worse don't sweat it tomorrow hit up auto-zone and they will plug in an OBDII scanner for free and pull the code.

As viking said..... The wk freaks out when the battery runs low. Once you get a new battery it will run fine.

I did a little research and I'm going to see if they'll warranty the battery for me. It's a long shot and I'm laughing about the thought of asking but the worst they can say is no.

They already owe me a new back up camera and it's well under warranty so maybe if I offer some donuts or whiskey my service advisor will hook me up.

I'll let ya'll know what happens. I wish I'd of just bought an SRT8. I settled for this thing being "smart" and have kicked myself continually since I brought it home. Ha ha! I think it doesn't like me back!

I'm sorry I disappeared. The dealership replaced the battery under warranty. That was cool...but it took them 3 days. LOL!!
