Ive got.a bad feeling about this?

So today I took a noce sunday drive in jeep. Nothing serious just cruising around, as I exit the freeway and come to a stop I feel the normal jeep shudder and then I hear a warning chime. I look down and see nothing, then another shudder and all my gauge lights flash on like the car has been restarted. my jeep is stock 2009 x so.... Any ideas

I'd check for tight battery terminals and take it in for warranty if you got it

Make sure your ground is good on the other end away from the battery.

Ha! I think they were being pretty light hearted buddy. Plus if the previous responses hadn't already been really useful they probably would've contributed more usefull'ness...all in good fun. Btw, I had the same issue and it was the battery and/or terminals even though they looked fine upon inspection. Dealer warranty covered it. Good luck.

My serious contribution: had the same issue and it was loose bolt on the ground strap

jeep shudder - (verb) 1. The physical reaction one has when comtemplating taking his jeep to the dealer to have warranty repairs performed.
