Electrical Demons

02 4.0 won't start or turn over gauges flicker up and down. Brand new battery. Nothing works not even the interior light. It seems as when ever I use an electric device the gauges jump up and down. any ideas?

Not enough grounding it sounds like. Make sure the thick wire "ground wire" is still attached and hasnt snapped off and you might need to get a small ground wire and attach it to the body. If your gauges continue to flicker go to the nearest shop and have them see what needs to be done. Otherwise your throttle cable will burn up and melt the rubber to the line and your gas peddle will get stuck. Its a fairly common mistake.
