Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The whole dash, windows, cd player, overdrive, ac, and pretty much everything electrical stops working. It was going on and off and now its pretty much just quit. PLZ HELP!
I had a similar problem with a Ford F350 diesel truck where the truck when started would cycle off and on until it settled down then ran steady. Finally it hadn't power to anything. I found that there are two heavy 10 gauge wires that lead from the positive terminal of the battery, leading to a connector block, and the terminal was corroded so thin that if finally burnt off resulting in a dead truck. I would check out that same circuit in your Jeep, every car has one, it is a fusible link type or just leads to the main fuse block. There may also be another possibility, and that being a dead short that immediately drains the battery to zero. Check the battery voltage with a voltmeter, if it's at 12 volts, then look elsewhere. From your description though it looks like the first problem.
