Battery died and is acting up?
Long story short, had my hazards on for maybe 25 minutes, while I was flagging. Got back to the Jeep tried to start it and it wouldn't start, assumed the battery died and of course the crew I was with had no jumper cables so I dished out a ridiculous 35 bucks for cables at the auto part store. Ended up getting the Jeep jumped and everything was fine. Did a 30 mile drive home, mostly highway. This morning got out to the Jeep and started it but you could tell it struggled a little but it started up fine. I tried pressing the gas pedal a little to give it a little juice but it wasnt revving the engine at all, like nothing when the gas pedal was to the floor. So I put it in drive and release the parking break and it took a few seconds but it kicked in and started driving, at that point I could rev the engine like regular.
Made a quick stop to the bank and when I got back to the Jeep to start it, it wouldn't start. Turned it off removed the key for like 15 seconds, and tried starting it and it slowly/dyingly did. Drove my 20 miles to work and all was fine. Then I started to look at the battery voltage on the display, and while the engine is off and key is in run position it's at 11v give or take a few at certain times. When I go to start it and it gets up and running, it's just under 14v which I know it should be at like 14.2 or something when normal.
When I got to work I turned it off for maybe an hour. We had to go to a work site so I tried starting it, and like before it didnt start on first try. Tried again and it started, tried revving when it started and it died, then I just tried starting it and left it alone for a minute before I could drive off.
Anyway check engine light came on and now I'm gonna go to the dealership to see what's up. **** Jeep couldn't wait 2 more freaking days, I had a oil change scheduled for Saturday ugh.
