Check the interior lighting and stereo fuses. The car's electrical system sounds like it was damaged when it was jump started.

Some of these problems occured before we jump started it

Same answer. When electronic things stop working, always check fuses first.

UN-JEWG YOUR BATTERY

INSTALL FULLY CHARGED OR NEW BATTERY. DON'T MATTER

INSURE CHARGING SYSTEM WORKS.A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE WILL DO IT FOR FREE MOST OF THE TIME

YOUR "RUN" DOWN BATTERY MADE THE COMPUTER GO HAYWIRE

JUMPING YOUR RIG, FIRED YOU UP

COMPUTER WAS STILL HAYWIRE, FROM THE VOLTAGE DROP INITIALLY

UN-JEWG-ING MR. BATTERY AND A.A.A.10 MINUTE WAIT, SHOULD RESET MR. COMPUTER

THEN INSTALL YOUR FULLY CHARGED BATTERY

OFF TO THE PARTS STORE---TESTING!

IF THE BATTERY OR CHARGING SYSTEM SHOULD DROP VOLTAGE AGAIN

GUESS WHAT?

SAME THING WILL HAPPEN!

RETURN WITH WONDERFUL NEWS!

. AND YOU OWE ME LUNCH!

ROGER DOGER!

I'LL GIVE YOU THE QUICK "DIY" METHOD OF FIGGERING THIS THING OUT!

1ST IT'S ALL ABOUT JEEPS

I HAVE 2 OF 7 RIGHT NOW

IN THE PIC BELOW, YOU WILL SEE THE BUSINESS END OF MY '77

THERE ARE SO MANY MODS I HAVE DONE TO THIS THING, I'LL JUST HIGHLIGHT WITH THE ONES YOU CAN SEE

MR. TRAIN HORN. SAID IT WAS FOR OFF-ROAD USE ONLY----DUH?---I MOUNTED MINE A GOOD 3 FEET OFF OF THE ROAD!

NEXT YOU WILL SEE THAT BIG 390 CFM HOLLEY MOUNTED ON MY 258 6 CYL. FOR ECONOMY (REALLY) BUT IT HAS SOME AWESOME POWER TOO!

THEN YOU HAVE THE DECALS ON THE HOOD---GOT 'EM ON MY DASH TOO.I STUCK 'EM ON MAGNETIC CALENDERS AND TRIMMED 'EM UP. THEY'RE SORTA MOBILE NOW!

AND THEM TEETH. WOW. YES. HE DOES BITE!

MUST BE ANOTHER 15 MODS YOU CANNOT SEE

I DATED MY WIFE. WE RODE IN BOTH JEEPS

"THE JEEPS AND I ARE ONE"

AS FOR THE CORRECT SPELLING OF "JEWGED" I COULD NOT FIND IT, SPELL CHECK COULDN'T EITHER!

NEVER HEARDA JEWG-ING IN AN 'LECTRIC CORD? (LIKE YOUR RADIO CORD)

AS SLOW AS I HUNT AND PECK, I TRIED SO HARD TO SUBMIT 2ND ANSWER BEFORE YOU REPLIED.I WANTED MY 2ND PART CLOSE, BUT BELOW MY PIC!

I GOT SO CARRIED AWAY, I MEANT TO SAY."IF YOU WILL LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF MR. JEEPS HOOD----YOU WILL SEE 'HER' 2003 FORD ESCAPE". AS FATE HAS IT (AND THERE IS NO "EDIT FEATURE" ON HERE YET) I STUCK IN AN EXTRA "E" AND MADE IT INTO "HERE" INSTEAD OF "HER"!

OK, SO I DIDN'T OPTIMIZE IT--STILL OUGHTTA WORK!

"JEWGS" OTHER MEANING. GOING TO A "JEWG JOINT". THAT MEANS: TO TRAVEL TO A 'DANCIN' PLACE!

WHERES OLE Dustin Berlin, SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING BY NOW?

Juke Joint. As in jukebox, but normally meaning with a live band.

Nope. Never heard of "jewg-ing" an electric cord. No big deal.
