Jeep Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
SOunds like the ignition switch may need replacement. But first make sure the battery connections are clean and tight.

is it not one of the circuit breaker because it automatically reset after few seconds
Jeep Mechanic: Anthony, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Not a breaker. It should be a bad connection at the battery or a faulty ignition switch.
