Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question

The first thing I would check is the ignition switch. It may be getting hot and causing this. You can also check the ASD relay in the relay box under the hood, near the battery.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron
