    Battery overcharging

    Hey everyone my 1998 4.0 is having a problem with my battery over charging. It used to start over charging when hitting a bump and all I had to do to fix it was tighten the terminals. It decided to start doing it again but it started messing with my other gauges. For example my oil pressure...

    Normal Voltage Reading?

    2003 2.4 auto, for the past week or so my TJ has been reading a little above 14v when running. This morning it was about half way between 14 and the next notch. It’s settled down a little bit at the time of taking the photo. Is this a normal read? Battery terminals are clean, battery and...

    Fusible links and wire upgrade

    So today I replaced all my negative wires with 2ga wire to clean things up a bit and I needed new battery terminals and all that. I am making all the wires and connections myself as opposed to buying the kit since I have most of everything anyway. I am now doing the positive wires now and I ran...

    Battery issues (Code P1682)

    I recently bought a 2002 Wrangler and have been having battery charge issues. When I bought it, they had a set of speakers in the back that I wanted to remove and got rid of them a couple days ago. They had a box connected directly to the battery which powered the speakers, but the box was also...

    Battery / alternator issue

    I wanted to get some insight on this. I just replaced my alternator as I had just replaced my PCM because the voltage indicator on the dash would die while driving. I replaced the alternator a few days ago and the voltage on the dash is fine now. But I’ll turn the Jeep off and go to turn it on...

    Battery Help (Parasitic Draw)

    I could really use some help. Some backstory: For about 6 months, I've faced some very intermittent battery issues. Or at least that's what I assume. Everything would be fine then one day I'd have trouble starting the Jeep but with some charging of the battery, it started right up. I didn't...

    Battery and alternator replaced, but TJ still keeps dying

    So the battery died on me. I was able to get it jumped and went to autozone and got a new one. They said it may need a new alternator since the voltage on the battery wasn’t going up. So I order one off rock auto and put it in Wednesday. Drove it around for about 45 minutes with no issues...

    Battery Issues After multiple jumps

    Hey guys, I have a 98' that is having battery issues. The first time it died, I believed it to be mod lights (wheel well lights) that were left on. I jumped it and started right up but shut the jeep off too soon so the alternator didn't charge it. After trying to jump it again, I realized the...

    2005 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 3.7liter I bought about a week ago, and first thing I did on payday was replace the battery. I let advanced auto do it as I didn't wanna haggle trying to find miss match tools and shit. But anyway I noticed as I was driving back to work that the rpms were through the...
