Gotta problem!

Okay so my yj squeaked when you started it and the lights would dim so I thought it was the alternator so I toke it off ad got it tested and it tested fine so I got a new belt and went to put the alternator back on it and one of the wires come off the harness and sparked of the frame well I got it all hooked back up and went to start and it won't start unless you pump the gas and keep it idling and as soon as you let off the gas it dies well tried to drive it and just spits and sputters can't figure out what it is any help?

I wonder if you are not getting enough fuel and thats why you have to keep the idle up. Try changing the fuel filter and see if that works

could also be bad ignition parts. have you changed out spark plugs, cap, rotor, plug wires in a while? because my car had a hard time stayin idle until i replaced all of those things.
