My Jeep Is Cold Weather Electrically Challanged!
The electrical gremlins are at it again! Our Temperatures have been way above normal so far this winter, So I have been driving the jeep a lot. In the mornings, when the temps are in the single digits or colder, the electrical system does wierd stuff. I start it up and let it warm up while I scrape the windows. Then I get in it and try to drive away and the headlights are dim and the heater motor is slower than normal. Driving for a few minutes, the lights brighten up and the motor will speed up, but only after driving it for at least 1/2 minute. The charging system is good, it has a brand new red top Optima, and every thing has been correctly grounded. Also, I have a Sun super tach II that completely quits until it warms up. I do have some wiring problems with brake and turn signals are concerned, i.e. wrong bulbs light up, but I don't believe the two conditions are related.
