This was brought on by my mistake. I had removed the fuse for the door switch and I left the lights on and the battery system went dead. It was totally flat and there was absolutely no response. Had vehicle jumped but the charging system does not seem to be up to par. Was able to drive for a couple of days, but now the jeep will start but will shut down as soon as gas is released. Instruments seem not to register properly.

Do you
have the same problem?

Get the battery bench charged and load tested to check for condition, the alternator will not fully charge a dead flat battery with a few drives.
