Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Attempted to start suddenly all the instruments (tach etc) went dead car went silent no power to anything. was going to remove the neg battery cable to check leads and reset. When I touched the terminal with the screwdriver, I noticed some real small sparks, indicating to me that there is some electrical feedback coming to ground. If I am saying this wrong, its because I'm a novice.....can anyone help?? Thank you! Melvin
Sounds like a bad connection at the battery terminals. Make sure you clean the clamps and posts
really well. You can use baking soda in water to remove acid build up ( white powdery stuff ). Which
causes there to be a poor connection. If you have an after market clamp on one of the battery cables
take it apart and clean it good too. Also check the connection at the ground cable to the body and engine. Good luck. Neil W.
