2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Won't start "SWAY BAR" and "HOTOIL" lights on

2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Installed a radio and had the battery disconnected while we were installing it. Hooked the battery back up and the truck won't start and the "SWAY BAR" light, "HOT OIL" light, and check engine light are all on. Put the factory radio back in, still the same thing. Did ECU reset procedure, still nothing, checked every fuse, still nothing.

Any ideas???

You called the Jeep a truck... you might have pissed it off...

maybe try disconnecting the battery, both positive and negative... When completely disconnected you can touch the positive and negative togeather, this will discharge all the extra power in the system.... MAKE SURE YOUR ARE COMPLETELY DISCONNECTED

Ha ha, didn't know I couldn't call it a truck that must be it...

Battery, done it in all different configs. Disconnected for almost a day, just positive, just negative, take both off and touch together, doesn't work. Went through the entire Jeep trying to see if something was unplugged or something and that's not it. There's really not much to it. Apparently there's only 42 wires in the entire vehicle.

Did you try and lock and unlock your jeep with the remote; sometimes the anti theft system will think it was messed with and lock the system down, even a battery disco won't work until the remote is triggered.
