Cherokee XJ 1997 2.5L turbo diesel.
Recently, someone unsuccessfully attempted to steal my Jeep and I had to get a second hand ignition switch installed (from my dealership). Since then, my battery has been draining overnight and things have got worse. My immobiliser has become stuck on. When I unlock the car using the key fob, the 'security' light goes off, but the fuel and battery gauges do not work. Whats worse is, when I try to use the OBD and get the codes, it does not actually do anything (the check engine light never comes on during start). I have got my battery charger on the battery (still connected to the car circuits) at all times as to provide power.
I am totally at my witts end and am out of ideas. Anyone got any suggestions?
