03 Wrangler Dies when parked and in 1st gear


Asked by Aug 12, 2016 at 01:18 PM about the 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I park my jeep and it's on a hill I put it in first gear because the E break doesn't work. Sometimes when I go to start it back up it completely dies. It's because for some reason it loses all power. I unplug the battery for about 20 minutes then reattached the connector and it starts back up. Why does the battery drain to nothing when it's parked and it's in gear??
