    In the video I saw about the jeep fire, it said the owner had done some heavy mods on it. Maybe one of those was the cause.

    Tappin' and talkin' with Tapatalk.

    I could certainly believe that heavily modding could result in an error in wiring or failed third party appliance or "mod" leading to subsequent fire. The 12 Volt Lead/acid batteries in our cars are capable of putting out massive amounts of power all at once (cold cranking amps), in some cases over 8,000 watts and approaching 10,000 watts (typical microwave ovens produce about 1500 watts). They can produce enough current to weld steel and melt copper wiring, and sparks that can jump several feet away, any of which can quickly ignite flammable materials in the vehicles.

    It doesn't even take heavy modding .add the wrong car stereo or even factory stuff like improperly grounded cruise control wire when the vehicle is off..can lead to fires or explosion or at the very least..a pcm failure..it damages the circuit by having t9 little or too much amperage ..

    Agreed, but heavily modded means there's even greater potential for failure.

    The biggest mods I've seen on jeeps is light bars...(south east Texas has a weird and huge Jeep following) but I agree..people.with no real education into auto electrical systems...should Not be modifying systems...it's like me playing with lighting..with coat hangers and fire crackers...no real good will come of it
