Start with buying a Haynes or Chilton's auto repair manual for your Jeep. Make sure the previous owner did not cheap out on maintenance or repairs. Fix whatever you find that needs fixing.


The loose wire is probably the source of your problems.


Capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and proper sentence structure make it easier to read your posts and will guarantee you more replies.
