2004 Jeep Liberty • 80,000 miles

I have had no issues with my Jeep until last night, when I left work last night the battery was COMPLETELY dead, I was able to get it jump started w/o any unusual problems (started in a few minutes) however when I started it I noticed the the gauges "pegged out" and all of the warning lights came on. After a short time 3 -4 minutes they returned to normal, but the radio/clock had no power everything else seemed to be working. This morning when I turned the ignition to "on" the gauges again "pegged out" and warning lights came on, I also noticed that the lock for the rear get was trying to actuate, and the radio was still out. I checked multiple fuses including 21, 33, 18, 13 all were visually good. I then cycled power by disconnecting the positive terminal from the battery for about 5 minutes, still the problem remains. Any ideas?

Check all fuses with a test light to verify.

Sounds like low voltage at the battery causing havoc at the gauges.

Start with battery voltage. Should be 12.4 to 12.6

otherwise it may have a damaged bcm
