    Funny voltage issues fixed by British Bulldog- a new alternator does wonders. Got a replacement DRL module in, the electric fan again has the thermal controller. then had a stumble/hesitation issue probably from bad gas. Seafoam onsale at canadian tire and a tank of gas from a different station and that went away too

    turns out i also had a bad relay for the electric fan that overdrained my battery. a few times. I had to pick up a canadian tire battery- i`m glad the jeep and the van share some parts, the battery can go in the van when i get a battery for the jeep more appropriate to offroading, and deep cycles.

    it was another loose exhaust connection, inches away from the last one, i had a spare clamp, and that seems to have fixed it for now.

    pervious problem was the battery disconnect. the winter wasnt kind to it.
    today's problem, throttle position sensor failed. replacement was $60 at partsource, not as quality as the original, but after i installed it twice (because it didnt mesh right the first time), it is working better again, and no codes. it's good to know someone with a handy code reader.

    i blew up the rad from not reconnecting all the wires to the electric fan attempting to avoid possible battery issues, driving to toronto without a pre run, found traffic on the way back. POP.
    getting tired of this jeep thing (yes, it is my own fault, not the jeeps- the next vehicle won't get so modded). offers?
