Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
Burned up all the wiring under the hood. The question I have is what is under there that I am going to need to fix. What are the things that I am going to keep in mind that I need to find through the mess. Thanks for the help
89 jeeps have simple straight 6 i would be concerned with distributers plugs and wire and also wiring harnests depending upon how much damage will depend upon how much time you take to examine it my first suggestion would be to look at all components damaged for startup battery sparks battery cables once you get started it will have to be process of elimination of how many parts are turly damged be sure to check all wireing and connectors to battery altenator and distributor

Well, If the wiring is all that you burned, then all you need to do is basically replace the engine harness and depending on where the fire is, you may have to rewire sensors or replace sensors with the second option of replacing being the safer option of not causing problems. If you are looking for used parts, you can go to http://car-part.com/ otherwise you can buy from the local jeep dealer who will have diagrams that you can look at to help figure out where everything goes if you get lost. I'm not sure what all burnt, but a new harness can be costly, and hopefully the computer is fine. What exactly got burned besides the wiring?
Anyway good luck and let me know if you have any questions during the repair
