Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I just got installed 4 sets of lights on my jeep 2010 Rubicon. Yesterday i wanted to see the final product so i turned on everything and it worked fine. Knowing that it drains a lot, they were on for max 20 secs. Now, today i tried to open any lights and nothing works. All the wiring is independent from all the factory lights. So im guessing a (or more) fuse(s) are screwed. How do i fix this thing because im going CRAZY!!!!!!.

First, disconnect what you installed from the power source you used. Then check that system for blown fuses etc. Without even knowing what each fuse is for, you can check all of them in under ten minutes using a test light.
Most manufacturers have fallen love with the use of multi purpose "modules" to take the place of what once was trouble free and forgiving, wires and switches. Many of those modules are "load sensitive" and will fail if you add anything to their circuit. I hope that has not happened.
When installing pretty much anything additional, I go the route of creating an entirely new circuit that attaches to the battery lead right where it attaches to the power distribution center.
This way you have a clean 12v source that is not attached to all the electronics. To do that, The circuit is as follows: Power lead to a fuse (or circuit breaker) rated at whatever you need to operate the additional equipment, going to a relay. Relay feeds the equipment added.
Power lead with smaller fuse and activation switch on dash, going to relay trigger. Always use separate grounds either to battery or engine block, not tied into any factory wiring. In your case It would be difficult to forget the added equipment was on, but for other items you may add, I like using a lighted switch as a reminder.
Be aware that your alternator is not designed to be overloaded.
If you add too much draw, you can exceed it's limitations, in which case you will need to upgrade to a larger battery and an alternator of a higher amperage output. (guys that install those giant sound systems know a lot about that!!!)
Good luck!

2010 Jeep Liberty, operated fine yesterday, this morning 4 degrees outside, no start-dash light says "no fuse"


the fuse is bad, the PCM sees that.
check fuses
or learn to scan PCM
the PCM can be scanned with any scan tool made (newer)
the scan will tell you which fuse it is.
or check all fuses. (test them)
or its loose.
or has hair line cracks inside.
scan it.
end the wonderments.

Sounds like a short in the electrical system. Maybe even just a loose ground wire. On the other hand...It could just as easily be a bad ECM (BRAIN)! Warranty still in tact? I hope so. Diagnostic at a certified Jeep shop... Good Luck!
