    Is the fact that the left blinker clickety-clacks at the right tempo a clue that the problem is on the right side? I walked all the way around and everything looks good. Only thing I couldn't easily test were the backup lights and brake lights.

    The question is why tommudd was online since then and didn't take out the garbage?

    I picked the right time to install the remote start on my 2006 Liberty with the snow and cold weather this past week

    Weird. Aftermarket bumper? Mine has done it since the arb replacement Abt 5 years ago, everything works, just my left blinker is fast...no other issues, everything is functioning properly.

    Stock bumper, and all running lights are fine.

    This is just the latest of a few weird things in the past two months. Maybe my Jeep is trying to tell me something. :(

    It's just trying to tell you that it's a jeep, and that it loves you. That's how jeeps tell their owner's they love them! Mine is infatuated with me, I tell ya! It seems also that our jeeps are connected through the waves (Radio?, Micro?, who knows) As I am also battling an evap leak, AND, I had this issue with my turn signals too, for me it was a bad ground from the connector to the chassis. As I did not have the time (at the time, now it's to cold out, or any other excuse will do) I just tapped in a new ground wire with one of those quick taps and ran it to the chassis.

    which remote start kit did you use?

    I wish I'd been able to pick up the factory add-on kit.

    I had an old Avital 4103L around that I was going to use on my 1996 Chevy truck before the torque converter gave out, you might want to look around and see if something newer has better features. I used the same model on my 04 Sunfire for a few years without issues until the motor went on that. I haven't got a Security bypass on it yet as I live in the middle of nowhere, might put one in next year.
    The parking lights and door lock feature work but I haven't been able to get door unlock to work with the correct resistor but I have a wiring diagram and will try with a relay direct to the door lock solenoid and skip the resistor and that isn't a big deal as I have relays around. I did post a question here about the door unlock issue and someone had the same result with the resistor. You can find wiring instructions at bulldogsecurity.com or the12volt.com

    I heard the factory add on kit had bad range and a nephew had a KK and the remote start on it just quit working according to him and he never asked me to look at it.
    I would avoid bulldog remote start as I have problems with those in the past but companies that are part of DEI are really good

    Tom, I usually use https://www.jeepkj.com/recent-activity/
    It is a nice option as it shows recent posts plus profile changes as some spam bots just join to add spam homepage links like https://www.jeepkj.com/members/peter-milder.29266/
    https://www.jeepkj.com/members/allen-sports-usa.29250/
    https://www.jeepkj.com/members/kneejointreplacement.29244/
    https://www.jeepkj.com/members/gricelda.29246/

    Someone can delete those links when the users are banned. I did use the report user link on the profile when I first saw the change but report user might be broken

    Besides all I did to the 03, also did 2 JK tuneups with one getting an oil change as well.

    Need more garage space for sure

    What's a tune up on a JK? Making sure the angry birds grill is still on good? Punisher sticker still in tact? Check to make sure the spare is stock and the others are 37s with 3:23 gears? LOL I crack myself up...probably shouldn't quit my day job anytime soon.

    Jeremy Thanks, I did not see them under recent activity. You seem to able to find them very well & we all appreciate it.
    If you open their profile you may see report available there as well?
    Anyways, I took care of all 3 as above, including Peter Milder (got your report ) they are all toast.
    PM me if you find em. I'll look after them, so Tom does not have to worry about them.
