Default Electrical problem? very strange..

I have a problem with my Cherokee Sport 2.4 2003.

Every now and again, when i start the car, the overhead display, the electric windows and the indicators dont work.

If i stop, turn off the engine, and restart it, sometimes everything works again.

Any ideas??


Thanks.

Are you talking about a 2003 Liberty?

Cherokees they made from 1984 to 2001. Later years they started others. Like the liberty, patriot and jk that I hate

Nick, it sounds like dirty or corroded ground(s)

Clean all of them and make sure you have good metal to metal contact.
That may solve your problem.

That was only in North America. Overseas the KJ and KK kept the Cherokee name.

It also sounds like it could be an ignition problem(lock and tumbler). They have been known to have that issue also. If not, I agree with Scott it could be a ground.
