My buddies 89 xj w/ 4.0 has a problem. when he it seems like the whole electrical system is dead. the only thing that will work is the lite on the hood. everything else is dead. He said before it went to haveing no power the gauges were going on and off and it just cut off in the drive way. He has a brand ne wbattery and alternater and a new starter. We have checked all the fuses an dstill nothing. Can anyone help ?

Dear Xtreme,

Maybe you've already done this, but when I have any kind of an electrical problem I start cleaning connections. Corrosion can really cause some wierd things to happen. Clean your battery cables really good and then clean (I like to hit it with a file) your battery cable where it connects to the starter. Don't forget your ground. Follow it and take it off and buff up the attatchment point and the eye. Sounds too simple, but that's where I'd start. Dean.
