Broken Wires in Wiring Harness May Cause Engine Problems on Chrysler Cirrus

Problem Description and Possible Solution

If the car will not start, stalls, or hesitates while accelerating, it may be caused by wires in the wiring harness that are broken internally. This is typically found where the wires pass under the distributor.

intermittent electrical problems in different areas. Radio goes on and off. blinkers work sometimes other times they and the hold instrument panel goes dark including radio and clock. When this happens the wipers don't work either. Runs rough like its gonna die. Battery light is on. Battery is brand new, alternator is work properly. Today was a new one, instrument panel goes dark but I applied brakes and they came back on. Car starts right up after sitting for 4 months but wouldn't start 2 miles down the road when I turned it off to fuel it. Makes me sick that this car has only 83000 miles, it's a 1998 I have babied it owned it from 12000 miles and it's paid for. Interior is all leather and well kept but I don't know if I should pay to repair it or look to dump it.
