Hello everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself being that this is my first post. I'm currently a student and study IT management in central NY.
Anyways, I drive a '93 YJ Wrangler which I've had for almost 2 years now and love it despite it being old and a little rusty. My problem has been persistent since I bought it but I haven't had to time to take a look at it.
When I bought the jeep, the PO said very clearly that he did not wire the stereo. I now know why, it's a freaking mess. My problem is that when the cigarette lighter is pushed in or I plug in something to the outlet like a GPS, my stereo turns off and the courtesy light underneath driver's side dash comes on.
The outlet works though and I'm able to power my GPS but I cannot listen to music and that annoying light stays on. Any ideas what could be causing this? I'm new to any kind of electrical work but am always willing to learn something new.
Also, it might be worth noting that my stereo does not turn off when the key is removed and has the potential of draining my battery. I'd like to change that so the stereo only works when the key is turned on but need to tackle this problem first!
Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance! - Dom
