Went off-roading for the first time yesterday with PGH Off-Road and had a blast but now the day after...
I have a bit of an overheating issue because of the mud in the radiators, but I know how to over come that. My question really centers around the electrical connections in the engine bay. I've been told to use electrical cleaner to clean each of the connections, anyone done this/know if its safe?
When I start it up as well, it starts fine, but it sounds quite muffled and not as lively as it used to start up. The battery is fine, fuses are fine, anyone have a suggestion?
Also important (but less so), the horn is particularly weaker now that it went through mud (unsurprisingly), but I wanted to see if anyone has ever successfully cleaned it out to full strength.
Cliff notes for the ADHD challenged (me)
-safe to use electrical cleaner on a jk?
-starter is weak but works
-horn got mud in it, barely works, suggestions?
For a stock, non-lifted Sahara still on the factory bridgestones, she held up AMAZING. She crossed TWO rivers, got me through two rocks with about 1" on each side while going up a hill like it was nothing. I was blown away by its performance, she took everything I could throw at her and kept up with lifted rigs of all sorts with big tires and tons of upgrades.
But before I think about upgrades, I want to get her running strong again. If I've learned anything about cars - maintenance is paramount.
