Anybody have any idea what happened or what to do? I started it yesterday and it was running fine when I parked it.
Is it lighting up the ESC and ABS lights, as well?
One thing to check is the ground wire on the ECU/PCM. Here's a photo of it:
The ECU is the silver thing behind the windshield washer reservoir. (The thing that says "Attach Accessories Here" is my sPOD...won't look the same in your Jeep."
The ground wire for the ECU/PCM is on the far left, top bolt holding the unit. Check to make sure it's seated behind the nut, and the nut is tight. It can cause all sorts of weird electrical havoc when loose.
Total guess on my part, as I'm not very electrically savvy, to say the least.
