    If an electrical short is causing the issues and you eliminate the short by pulling a fuse then yes the other symptoms may disappear. It's not a full proof way to diagnose the issue but it's easy enough to do and could save a bunch of time.

    I may be wrong, but I think all that shit is driven by the CANBUS so if there is a wire or component that is grounded or loose, it would cause gremlins like you're experiencing. Not sure if pulling fuses would help track it, but it might.

    Is the can bus at all related to the clock spring they replaced on the recall?

    Yes. The clockspring relays information back to the computer via CANBUS.

    headlights won't turn off? the headlight switch is a multi-switch and all run thru the clock spring. very possible the clock spring is bad again or the headlight multi-switch is bad

    wondering if the dash is grounded properly, take some wire, find a good spot on the dash to ground to and run it direct to the battery negative.

    I didn't read back far enough but are there any codes?

    Correct headlights on as soon as you turn the key, no dome light, dash is dead. There are no codes when it works but now it has quit working all the time. Before I could unhook the battery and it would work for 4 starts then quit working.

    I hope the clock spring is bad again, at least that should be under warranty

    Gave my daughter the hard top for Franklin for the winter, adjusted my tailgate up, and got the spare put back on. Going to put the sway bar back on after dinner

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
