2.5 engine wire harness replacement

Just bought a used engine wiring harness to resolve my high idle problem. Anyone have experience with this and tips for what I may run into?

Uncoil and unwrap so it lays out naturally. It was installed for a lot of years and will be easier to install if it is layed out. When installing lay it out in the natural position and hook to the firewall at the big connector first. You can cruise all the common easy stuff first but don't clamp anything tight until completed. It should be fairly easy.

Should be easy, but someone rigged up my Jeep and some of the connections are far from factory.

I got a harness for a 91 and is in awesome shape. For the 95 there is a couple connections that are not the same, and some of the wire colors are different. Can anyone tell me where to find diagrams on the web for a 91 and 95? All the ones I find are fuzzy when zoomed in.

Airbag bypass 1995 2.5L

Hey guys, I replaced all of my engines electrical wiring and now it turns over but won't crank. After troubleshooting I find it is because I have no airbag and someone previously jumped some of the circuits to make it run. Anyone know how to do it? Is the system designed to disconnect the fuel pump when the airbag is deployed on impact?
