deathphoenix99 As for the dash reading 19 volts, dash gauges are known to be horrbly inacurate, I suggest you check the voltage at the battery when the jeep is running, if it is 19 volts, TURN IT OFF IMMEDIATLEY. That high of a voltage will do damage to your electronics. If it is that high, then the voltage regulator on the alternator is bad. I believe it's built into the alternator and is not replaceable, meaning you will have to replace the alternator.

Lowrollin12 No the voltage on the guage cluster is reading that... Im not saying that is what it really is but something is going on...

meyers The voltage is 19volts at the dash? How are you checking this voltage, the battery is only 12 volts. You may get 14 - 14.5 when charging. But 19 is way out of spec.

Electrical Nightmare!

So 1st I thought i was having issues with the ignition switch when I would have the air bag light come on, No wipers, no radio and no heat. Then it would 1/2 resolve itself and i just wouldnt have wipers and couldnt use the fan on high....

Now the jeep wont start with out a jump and the voltage is around 19 volts on the dash....

I think this could all be from the ignition switch but what do you think?
