Odd Electrical issue - need help
This morning I went start the jeep (2005 LJ 4.0) and there was ZERO power. Not even the lights would come on.
When I opened the hood, I noticed the under-hood light had fallen loose of it's mount so my first guess is that since it drained the battery due to the internal switch going to the on position.
I put the jumper cables on to the other car and lights / power came back. I held the ignition in the start position for two or three seconds and got the typical click click click click from the starter, which of course means - still not enough power, but then everything just went out. No lights, no anything, even with the jumper cables still hooked to the other car.
I am stumped, because even if the battery is in fact low, why would I have no power at all at this point even when hooked up with jumpers to a running vehicle?
Any thoughts would be helpful!
