Bad battery or What ?
 
Hello all,

Was going to go to the store and my wk 5.7l was dead zero power at all. The jeep was all fine yesterday. I am charging battery now. The battery was drained all the way down like I left the doors open all night. How could this happen will charging it help fix the battery or is the battery slowly going bad. I do not know if this is related to what cause my problem or what but that day I went out to put my windows up turned the acc on to do this and off went into house. Then no power next day.

I don't know how new your battery is chris but I was having the same exact issue with my Jeep back in Sept. It would randomly have Zero power. I'm talking like no lights when opening the door or odometer displaying on the dash. I would charge it and it would be fine for a day or two then it was dead as a doornail. But then I realized that I was quite the idiot and replaced the battery. Have not had a problem since. Not a bad run for a factory battery that was 6 years old! I would assume that with a battery that old, the cells probably started to just 'die' or no longer hold a charge. Needless to say I wont let this new battery go that long.

Well I just went to go start it up and it started I put a voltmeter on the battery at idle and reading 14.5 volts the jeep off 12.6 volts. The radio was the only thing that did not come on it is a mygig radio Could it be a fuse that blow on why the radio was not working?

Thanks

Well still working ok question. I got a volt meter to check battery volts,Well jeep sitting over night I check battery volts and it is at 12.2volts, I turn the jeep on the lights dim then get bright and check volts at idle and I got 13.9 volts. Is my oem battery going bad I got 3years and 6 months on this battery,it was replaced under warranty work. Do you think jeep would replace my battery because of low volts. This is a 72 month battery I got about 3 more years. Could someone check there volts on a oem battery sitting over night.

Thanks
