Please let me know as soon as you do know because if you got the whole lot (wire harness and ECU) stashed I will be very interested. Thanks for the help

We regret to inform you that after 3 hours of cleaning up his shop and searching, we could only find a body harness. My apologies. The one on Ebay may be your best bet. AFAIK your XJ 4.0 manual ECU should plug and play.

Can confirm the XJ computer is plug and play. You will get 2 or 3 more codes than normal since you dont have the fuel pump bypass relay the electric rad fan and there is one other one. I had the same ECM he has just sent it back turned out I didnt need it.

Problem is wiring everything back together because this makes it not plug and play at all

The computer is plug and play not the harness. The connector on the YJ harness plugs right into the XJ computer no resplicing wires or anything.

You can get a 4 cylinder harness and easily adapt it to your rig. There are a few thing you need to lengthen and add the 2 injector circuits but its easy. There are way more 4 cylinder harness available and they are cheaper.

I understand that all I am saying that a YJ harness would be your best bet. Que is great and call walk you through adding the 2 injectors and lenghtening the 2 sensors so a 4 banger harness will work for your 4.0. He walked me through troubleshooting the harness on more than one occasion. Once he did it while I was still suffering from my 3rd major concussion in 3 months and a bruised brain. Ig he could walk me through it he can walk anyone through it. Just follow his instructions to a T.

Before you put the new harness in use your cell and take pics of everything you have going currently. Pull the old harness out and compare the 2 of them side by side. Pay close attention to the bulkhead connector. There is a strong chance with that much smoke let out of the harness there was peripheral damage. Be patient and you will get it.

Patience is everything. I use the statement at work that if I don't have the time to do it right this time, how am I going to have the time to do it over and over? I am not slow or lazy buy any means, but also don't care if somebody is in a bigger rush than what is reasonable. I love it when I get asked how much longer? I always answer, "the whole time". It is not an exact science, not every repair is the same, especially in the salt belt. As Que said. Be patient. Be observative. Be thorough.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

I'm with Que and the guys, I'd stick with the YJ harness. A couple guys locally part YJs for a living and more than likely have the harness and ECU that you need. Call them, they may be willing to ship:


Steve (609) 529-6188 in Manahawkin NJ, advertises on Craigslist. I've bought a few parts from him, he parts a LOT of YJs.


Jim Diamond @ cj5.com has a warehouse full of old Jeep parts (lots and lots of YJ stuff) in Pemberton, NJ, I've known him for decades. http://cj5.com
