2001 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 58000 miles
I have a jeep that ran ok, then I shut it off and the nest day the battery would run down. I checked that everything was off and attached a battery charger, it started 45 min later and would run fine. I thought it might be the battery so I put in a new one, it did the same thing. We put a volt meter on the negetive post that was unhooked and the negetive cable and it was pulling 12.8 volts with everything shut off. I was told it could be the alternator, but it took off the wire that runs to the battery and it still pulled the same volts. I did not unplug the other wire going to the alternator. Does that wire run the internal voltage regulator, and if so would thar run down the battery?
have the same problem?
