Well, thanks for the advice, it seems to have been the remote starter. I removed it, and the car is running like a champ.
Now, the next gremlin on the list is the signal.
The right turn signal starts as a slow flash then the dash chimes and the signal speeds up. The intensity of the bulb is about half of that of the left turn signal. I have replaced all the bulbs on the right side, both front and back, but the situation is the same.
Any thoughts, o geniuses of the Jeep?
thanks again for your help.
