You only have two codes, 11 and 12, 55 means that it is the end of the sequence

11 is " No distributor reference signal detected during engine cranking. Check the circuit between the Distributor and the PCM." (Haynes) or "Camshaft signal or Ignition signal--no reference signal detected during cranking" (Chiltons)

12 is "Battery Disconnected within the last 50-100 Key Starts" so not a big deal for you so that leaves the problem with error code 11, though you have not given me any other symptoms. Usually the cam sensor is the problem with these Jeeps so access it underneath with a long extension and a flex socket or through the fender well on some applications and replace it (hopefully try to test a working one from another Jeep in it before buying a new one, just so you don't waste the money). Let me know how this turns out.

    No I meant the cam since the distributor is part of the error possibility

Alternator not charging battery (replaced alternator and same issue) tested and no codes showing, alternator shows good and battery shows good. Could be a break in a wire between the two or what Help

Yes. The field control wire feeding power into the alternator needs testing and the output from the alternator to your battery also needs testing. Either one can cause low charging of the battery. Corrosion or loose connections are common issues as well as broken strands of wire internally . A fuse or fuseable link sometimes burns out in the cable from the alternator to the battery .

How do i test a throttle position sensor

The only way to effectively test it for operation is to monitor the data it shows using a scan tool. There will be a resistance test that can be done but it will not show the true sensor operation

Emisssion test failed with 0p410 code/fuel cap failed

The diagnostic test won`t tell you if there is water or what the problem is exactly.There is a trouble tree you follow when you get a code and it will tell you test a number of things by using a multimeter or test light.Some techs skip test or just replace parts and clear the code and sometimes the test do not come up with a failure.The usual problem with this code is water in the system and it usually requires replacing the injection pump.There is a service bulletin for this vehicle not passing the I/M test.The bulletin is 06-06-04-037.What you should do is go to the dealership and see if they can give you a copy of this bulletin so you can show it to the inspectors that are performing the test.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Headlight wont work

Did you try swaping bulbs from left to right to see if you got a bad bulb? Did you check voltage at the plug where the bulb itself plugs in? Test lights don't really show you the whole picture. Invest in a Voltage meter.
