yup, went home at lunch to try and get 'er going. FOUND THE PROBLEM! As soon as I hooked up the jumper cables to my sable, the under dash lights came on.
been using them more often now that its getting dark around 5:30pm. All the kids have a hard time climbing in and out so I put the lights on to help them. ...oops.
On the bright side, (no pun intended) I noticed my battery does need a cleaning. And yeah, I made it to the gas station! I've been told that when the YJ's say empty, THEY ARE! No taking chances with 'em.

By the way, I love your sig "A lack of planning on your part does not constitue an instant emergency on my part" my wife has that sign in her computer store!

My battery gets weak after a 4-5 days. It's old though...
Sorry bout' your luck. Mines ready for the coming snow but most likely i'll be in my truck with the plow.

Non-YJ Day, but... its my own fault I guess.
darn it... I havn't drove the YJ in about 2 weeks because it was really low on gas. Had to run my sons friends home and was really low without passing a station. So, I figured I'd wait until I could just go straight to the gas station on the way in to work one day. Got up early, got in there to run 'er up for more gas and low and behold... my battery is completely dead from sitting two weeks and its pooring rain like heck, might get snow today as well.
So, Im stuck with the sable today. Heading home at lunch to jump 'er and get going again.
Is it normal for a YJ to run the battery dead sitting for two weeks? We didn't leave anything on??? Let me know if anyone has had a similar symptom. I know my battery is only about a year old and it ALWAYS cranks right up. Not sure whats up this time???
