I'm thinking a loose connection but has anyone seen this before?

I had a bad capacitor in mine. I think it did what yours is in the picture for a day and then went out completely. The capacitor was obviously bad so I grabbed one from Frys and changed it out. Works fine now.

Solder joints are notoriously poor on these jeeps, especially the vic. May be easier to grab another one from a JY.

Again, bad solder joint. The connection between the VIC and the sensor in the reservoir usually goes bad.
