I own a 1998 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4X4 , the other day I lost all power to my accessories and my vehicle died shortly after. It turned out that the battery was completely drained. I had the battery charged and checked at a local parts store and it was fine. I rechecked it at home and confirmed that it was fine. I pulled the alternator and had that checked, it was fine. I was told that it may be that my cables are bad. I checked them with a multimeter and all seemed to carry a current through them. I checked the fuses in the fuse box under the hood and all were intact. Should I replace my battery cables even though they checked out fine? What kind of reading should I be looking for on the multimeter? Is there something else that I should check? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
