Battery problem

So i have a jeep jk 07. I have recently installed a new battery. Starting about November-ish I have been noticing my jeep acting weird. My stereo would shut off and come back on, didn't think it was a big deal till today on my way to work while waiting at a red light my dash lights all light up and then quickly went away and then my jeep completely shut off. No electricity whatsoever, couldn't even turn on hazards. It was completely off, had to get my dad to jump start it. Checked my alternator, that was good. Anyone have any idea? Thanks

Make sure that your battery cables are both tight and clean.

It's surprising that with today's vehicles a loose or bad connection can cause all kinds of weird stuff to happen.

good luck

Battery problem

I have a 2015 and while I was out wheeling all of my dash light started flashing. It looked like a lights on a Christmas tree flashing. I took the jeep to the dealers and they gave a 5 page read out of error codes. To make a long story short, they kept the jeep for two days. It end up being a dead cell in the battery. They replace the battery under warranty and I have not had an issue since. That was about 5 months ago.

I have a 2012 JKUR and I have had a couple of issues of it acting weird on the trail and both were the result of loose battery connections. This should be your first easy fix option. Otherwise I'd take it to the dealer under warranty. Jeeps have been known to have battery terminal connection issues. Happened in my old TJ as well. Good luck!
