Wiring harness Issue
Hey there Jeep Engineer, Thanks for being here.
I have an 88 YJ with 94k. I just bought it and it is super clean and I think i got a pretty great deal. Problem is that I was having some electrical issues and after replacing distributor, rotor, coil, plugs, wires, carberator, running vacuum tests and compression tests, I still had the problem. I was not getting enough juice and it was bogging down when I stepped on the gas. Further investigation led me to discover that a previous owner had tampered with and cut a few of the wires in the wiring harness. The harness is super hot to the touch and there are many different electrical supply issues. I am also not getting power to the alternator. Anyhow, my mechanic friend told me that the best and easiest fix would be to install a new wiring harness, as opposed to running tests and being able to solve all potential electrical issues that may or may not arise. anyhow, I cannot find a wiring harness to save my life. Do you have any suggestions for me? i am in Dallas and have looked at every jeep house and every company that i am aware of. I spoke with painless and they said they are working on a harness for this model but it will not be ready for another 6 months to a year.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Edit: Bill this is supose to be limited to the JK model, I'll leave the question in case they want to answer it, but don't be suprised if they don't
