nothing , just bought it tonight
how old is the battery?
I DONT KNOW .LOOKS FAIRLY NEW I JUST GOT THE JEEP TODAY AND DROVE IT HOME OPENED THE HOOD AND COULD HEAR A HISSING COMING FROM BATTERY.ALSO ALL THE ELECTRICAL GAUGES ARE NOT WORKING .WHEN I TALKED TO GUY I GOT IT FROM HE SAID EVERY THING WORKED
be VERY careful with that battery. It may have a shorted cell internally. It has a risk of exploding, so i say be very careful. I would close the hood and replace it tomorrow. put a new battery in it. But I would not do anything to it short term with it hot as risk of explosion is possible.
