    Battery draining issues

    My lovely Rubys dead too often, I've bought a new battery, and made sure the doors are closed at night (yes that happened), there seems to be minting wrong with alternator.

    I'm wondering what this piece is photo attached, it's connector as 2nd cable on the positive side of the battery, could this be affecting it? Maybe it's bad or dead? And what is it for?

    Also the wires are freyed not not close to all the way through.

    I haven't gotten that problem yet with my Rubicon(not yet). Have you tried going for OPTIMA battery? I've got the Red one, and it's lasting for a while.

    Welcome to WAL. Go introduce yourself in the Wave forum and you'll probably get a better response... That being said, the piece you're asking about is a fusable link for a winch.

    Are your battery terminals tight? If you grab and twist them is there any play? If so, loosen the connecter a little, get a socket a tad bigger diameter than the battery post, and tap down on it to seat it better then tighten everything up again.

    If that doesn't help, take the battery to an auto parts store and have them test it.

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.
