DirtyTeddy Try unlocking your battery and cleaning it up.

Texanrojo Same happened to me twice now. I've installed offroad lights and a line level converter for my factory sub. I have a feeling it's the line level converter because my sub sounds like crap before it happens. So I'm betting there's a short in there because of that. But I need to check batt as well

WranglerAddict Had this happen a few weeks ago while the wife was driving. It was right after I lifted ours so I thought maybe something came loose and body shifted over the axels. All lights came on and speedo dropped for a brief second she said. Took it into dealer and they said my comp malfunctioned and try replaced the entire computer system. I have a '13 JKU Sport

Along with the electrical issues I am also having an issue with my auto transmission. Well I got a call from the service manager today, apparently even after seeing the video and reading my trouble codes (P0741, P0573) they can't find anything wrong with my jeep. Here is the kicker, he told me that my error codes were probably caused because I have an aftermarket radio and aftermarket headlights.

I left a message for the gm, I'm waiting for a call back now.

I sprayed WD40 and wiped the terminals. Hasn't happened since...

DougM55 I ended up having a bad battery replaced under warranty on my 2012 with 28K miles.

I sprayed some wd40 and it hasn't happened since. Maybe coincidence. I'll check out the battery if it happens again. Also may put some dielectric grease when I clean the bay

scottmphoto My Rubi did this, the electronic sway bar unit was not waterproofed and was shorting. Chrysler replaced it.

ave8er My '12 did this. And then it left me stranded miles from anywhere. It turned out to be the battery on my Jeep, may not hold true for you. They told me the battery shorted out inside. It was on a Sunday and it was like 7pm. I bought a battery from the closest auto parts store. Mailed the receipt to Jeep and they mailed me a check.

DirtyTeddy Just a bit of update, it happens randomly now usually in the heat. But I notice now that I do lose acceleration because it happened back to back and was noticeable. Checked my battery connections and they seem tight, I'll give a go cleaning them

DougM55 Just went through this. Not 100% sure what fixed it. Dealer replaced the TIPM and WCM. I also disconnected my aftermarket remote start.

It lasted less than a second so could not tell what lights were popping up. Also these consecutive times all happened in a span of 20min on an hour trip. Happened once on the way home as well.

Any Insight on what gremlin I have would be awesome
Make sure your battery connections are clean and tight. Any momentary break in contact will cause this.

Ok then it is the same exact circumstance. Was scared it was a cause of me flooding my jeep earlier this year LOL

nwbronco Check your battery voltage. Should be around 12.5VDC with engine off, and around 14.5VDC with the engine running.
