Keeping up with tradition I had my truck back for a whopping three days before it stopped running yet again. Truck was stone dead this morning not even a click. The interior light did have some juice so the connection is there. I just got it back from having the new dual pump fore innovations hat installed. Not sure if that had something to do with it, I assume those would only come on when it is keyed on?. As well how would I go about diagnosing battery vs alternator?

Also dont rule out the starter. When I had my battery gremlin it was due to a bad starter. I had AMA test the battery and it was fine even though the Jeep was dead. I got a boost and away it went until one time it just would not turn over anymore.

Easiest way to check.a battery is to take it to your local autoparts store and have them charge and load test the battery..... Just cuz a battery will show higher then 11.5 volts does not mean the battery is working, so its underload that you would know if the battery is good or not.. I would start there first....

I didn't start it for three days (since Monday) and my alarm (viper) does tend to drain the battery a bit but 3 days seems insignificant. I am hoping I was just a moron and left something on. I will get the AMA guy to test the battery when he comes to boost me after work. If the battery is good it goes back to the shop for trouble shooting... It's literally been there 2 and 1/2 out of the last 3 months. Very frustrating!
