YJ wrangler door wont close
Start out by checking the latch mechanism on the door. Use a screwdriver to "trip" the latch with the door open, then pull on the screwdriver against the latch gate. If it doesn't hold then you may have a bad latch (the springs in the latch can go bad over time). You can also try spraying penetrating oil (PB Blaster) into the latch and again using a screwdriver to trip the latch, then open with the handle, and repeat several times to work the oil into the mechanism and free it up (this trick also sometimes works with the springs on wiper arms that have lost tension). If the penetrating oil trick works, think about spraying dry lube or white lithium grease into the latch to help prevent it from happening again. If the door is misaligned, consider new hinge bushings, a misaligned door can cause damage to the door, and put tension on the door latch in a direction that puts pressure on the latch that it wasn't designed for.

Wipers will not park
both stuck mid glass?, not stuck running endless when off,?
that means the auto park switches in the wiper motor guts are bad.
when you turn them on the motor self runs,
the runs until the keep alive contact cam reaches the end
ad self turns off in park.
that cam fails on all 1988, its old. and hopeless that old.
if you had dismantled it youd see DAMAGE on the cam contacts or the wiper brush to it.

Where do I find the cec connection for setting timing?
timing of what, cam or spark.
what engine, is there.
Computerized Engine Control or Computerized Emission Control (CEC)
the 4.0L and 2.5 liter , uses the RENIX ecu. and not the CEC. tje REnix has fixed, CKP sensor timing.
the 4.2liter has distrib timing.
my guess is you have the instructions and
get lost at the find VACUUM switch on top of valve cover words?

No dash lights & dimmer switch stuck on high beam
You could have two different problems . I have had two 1999 wranglers an the dash panel going out has always bin a faulty main connecter to the panel . I reach up under an wiggle an push it back in place . It doesn't come out it just loses connection . The other problem is a faulty dimmer switch i think .

1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced
you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.
