Electrical?
1997 grand Cherokee 4.0 2 wheel drive.

ok last night I parked the jeep and didn't notice the heater blower was still running and the info center on roof console was still on and drained my battery. I've pulled fuses and moved wires around to see if I can spot any shorts or burned wires and no luck. I know some jeeps are common to electrical issues so I'll keep searching and get lucky. It's the only other vehicle I have.

Never afraid of sticking my hands in a repair, lots of headaches and tinkering has thought me the knowledge I have in the automotive industry.

RE: Electrical?
Rough guess? Find the blower relay and pull it out then tell us what happens. (after you charge the battery)

RE: Electrical?
After checking everything and some research I found the problem. Water, who would of thought. The fuse box was wet, dried it up and wola. Just incase someone else comes across this, first check that the cowl is clean of debris so water can drain out properly and check the seal on the antenna, it rots and leaks water through there. Now to check everything else around the area for more leaks.

Well guys here is probably one that you didn't know.

RE: Electrical?
Good info but seeing as "something electrical got wet" I'd be tempted to find those relayes in the fuse box to do some detective work. They may or may not last long once they got water inside. IOW, long term issues. Still in all, a great observation!
