Evpjr Don't start partying just yet. I don't want to "rain on your parade" but there might be a problem down the road with corrosion build up in the main battery busses, that can cause low voltage going back to the battery from the alternater, and a weaker recharge.

Fog Light problem, now battery problem?

I have an 04' wrangler, my fog lights have been malfunctioning (won't shut off) and it drained my battery. I pulled the fuse for the fog lights to disable them and jumped the battery. After being jumped it will only run for a few minutes then shuts off. Is this indication I need a new battery.. or something else all together?
