    Push to start

    On my 2001 TJ sport when I bought it, it had a push to start wired up bypassing the ignition. From what I can tell it is a relatively common thing on the TJs. Something on the ignition rod breaks and instead of fixing you go around it by wiring a push to start. Well on mine you put the key in...

    Hi all, Need some help solving an electrical gremlin on my 97 TJ sport. My left blinker does not turn on when the lever is pressed all the way down. However, the blinker functions as normal when the lever is held about halfway down. The blinker also turns on permanently (not blinking) when...

    Loose Wire Loop Connector by battery terminal?

    New to the Site, just purchased a Jeep 97’ TJ 4.0L. Found this mysterious black wire with a loop connector on the end tucked away by the battery. Does anyone know where this goes? Kind of hard to make out in the photos, but it travels back into the main Molex Harness connector before the ECM I’m...

    TJ Cluster Issues

    98 Wrangler 2.5 Auto. Gauge cluster works sometimes, only on nice days. Cluster doesn't work if it is raining or the humidity is high. It will work if disconnected from the battery for a period of time but if the jeep is turned off it won't work unless disconnected again. I Have replaced fuses...

    Multifunction Switch (MFS) issue

    Not sure what happened, one minute everything was fine, the next a guy pulls up next to me (in a JKU) telling me I don’t have brake lights. I was on my way home anyway, so I checked and neither the turn signals, flashers, not the brake lights worked, but the tail lights worked. Turns out the...

    Need advice before I pull this out of fuse box

    I have been having issues with the dash gauges going in and out, I’ve done some research and I think it has to do with this in my IOD fuse slot. Is it safe to pull this and put a 10A fuse in its place? I’m afraid if I pull it, the fuse slot won’t accept the new fuse. I have attached a photo.

    Hi from Rome, Italy where I converted my 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L in a LPG powered to pass emission restrictions here and run everyday as a daily driver in city centre. I decided to make this post cause I can't really figured out the problem after many attemps. Symptoms are some little random...

    P1682 alternator doesn't seem to charge battery

    I got the 'check gauges' light and the p1682 code. It still starts and runs however the battery slowly drains while running. No new mods. I suspect it is the alternator since it has not been replaced for the 7.5 years I've had this Jeep (no issues until now). Wires and battery terminals were...

    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...

    A/C replacement causing RMP surge and pulling

    Had the ac evaporator replaced. It wasn’t done right. There has to be a wiring issue. The fan only works on 1 speed. As soon as the heavy system is turned on it surges the RPMs. I’ve replaced the fan switch a little while back and the fan switch has been spliced in as it had previously melted...

    Parking lamps fuse

    So I installed a seat heater, and it came with a fuse piggyback device which I briefly used on my parking lamps fuse before changing it to my wipers because the parking gets power when the key is removed. However, since doing this my parking lamps/dashboard lights keep flickering, even more when...
