Help Dead 2012

Well took my mother out to eat for moms day on sat to beat the Sun rush anyway we started to leave turned the key on my 2012 2dr sport and the dash lights looked like the 4TH of July right down to the sizzle flicker/flash get bright go dim well my brother was there . we opened the hood and you could hear clicking from the fuse panel without the key in ignition. it turned out clicking is coming from the ignition relay took relay out and it continued disconnected bat for 10min to try to reset no use even with the key out and the lights turned off. the parking lights and headlights would flicker very dimly called roadside assist and they sent a tow well could not get it in neutral with key all the way on when the tow guy hooked jump box to it it was enough to get it in neutral but then key would not come out well got it to local dealer of course not open till Monday if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them thanks Joe. until then

I'm by no means an expert, but mine did the exact same thing you described. Took me awhile to figure it out, but one of my battery terminals was touching the inside of my hood. Tightened the battery down and haven't had a problem since.

Sweet, glad you got it fixed. Mine was making me crazy for about a week. I swore it was electrical too, until one day I finally was able to smell it. I'd recognize that smell anywhere! (Long story with an old truck I flipped, battery and headers had melted to each other, lol)

Glad Firkins got you fixed up without much hassle. I started a thread for Palmetto:
Wheeling in Palmetto Sunday May 19th at Noon
