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.

Where can I find the fuses for the radio? The CD player stopped


the cd player and radio should be on the same system or as a whole, it should all be not working, there may have been a short inside the cd player, check all the fuses in the fuse box look for 10amp and 15 amps usually. being a newer car it is odd. you may need to take it in to toyota for a diagnostic check. good thing about the electrics in cars these days is their computers tell you everything.

Keyless entry, Interior lights, AC Fan Controls problem


Yes you Can. Just unhook the Battery Cables Before you Tear into the Box. The reason that everything went Nuts with it is whenever you Un Bolted the Box you took the Ground away from the Box and all the Components Connected to it. That Bolt is a Common Ground for the Dash ans other Components. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Weather related electrical problems


I had this problem with mine. Do not ever use a automated car wash on your ALERO----it destroys the seal around the window. Then, when you drive in rain, water leaks into the fuse box, shorting it out. I had to replace the fuse box ($500). Hope this helps.

It turned out that disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it reset the control module and fixed the problem.
