2008 JK Power Cuts Out
So my 4 door Saharah has an issue where the power cuts out for a second then kicks back in. A few of the error lights flick on and then the power cuts and goes back on. The stereo goes out as well and sometime it resets the clock. Today it happened and the spedo started to drop but then kicked back in. I bought the Jeep used and based on the car fax the previous owner never took it to a dealer so I doubt it has recieved any TSB updates. The best coast i found to reflash the CPU was $109 but I wanted to see if anyone has had these issues before I do that. The Jeep still drives fine so it is not necessarily dangerous but if anyone else was driving it like my wife they would freak.

Original battery?

Nope the guy I bought it from mentioned he just replaced the battery and starter.

I checked the batter and the lines were very loose I could lift them off. So maybe that was the cause which would be great!

Well it looks like that flushed out the Gremlins. It is nice to find a solution to a problem that costs $0! Thanks for the help problem solved!
