    Any SES lamp on?. Check the Fuses for the window and a/c issue first before we go indepth with the electrical concern.

    all the fuses are good , check engine light is on when the jeep actually starts

    I would take it to Autozone or anyone of those parts supply that scans for DTC's for free and find out what it is first. This will give you a direction in troubleshooting the cause for the concern and take the guess work out.

    Cool but sorry, i don't do service calls. Free of charge if you take it to me here in Kerrville on a trailer. We can scan it with the Chrysler scan tool and do some test on it.

    Spin the motor over with the cap off and you can see which way it turns. Sounds to me like the body ground wire broke off (not the one on the motor) or the alternator went bad. (what happens if you jumpstart it and leave the cables on? Does everything work then?)

    Is your battery any good?, with the symptoms you've described so far sounds like a faulty battery. Just a thought.

    Yes it's possible. When in doubt, check it.

    Sounds like a bad throttle position sensor (quite often they screw up when people wash the motor and spray water into them) Or a bad vacuum leak/hooked up wrong hose.

    A rattle from the catalytic converter means you need to replace it. The A/C issue could very well be a bad blower motor resistor.

    Sounds like the cat could be clogged up possibly and the back pressure tryin to come back up through the head killin your engine, don't know about emission laws where your at but if you can take it off and see how it runs then, if it's better replace the cat or just leave it off and straight pipe it with some flowmasters, louder is better,lol hope this helps
