Electrical Problems

My 97 has been acting really wierd lately. First Half of my Dash lights are out, that happened a couple of months ago, then about two weeks ago, I brain farted and forgot to put my oil cap back on after adding a quart of oil, then I decided to clean the engine off of the excess oil that had spewed every where and the Engine light came on, I figured something just got wet and it went off after a couple of days.

Well now the fuel switch accelerator(I think that is what it is called) starts acting up, at first I thought it might be dirty fuel injectors, so I put in a can of Sea Foam and some premium, I can tell now it's not the injectors, I tried to check the codes on the Dash but it's not working at all, so I reset the Engine check light and took her out for a test drive to see if it cleared up.

I put it in Second and she starts to bog out just like it would be if the injectors were clogged, and the Engine light comes back on, Okay now this is getting annoying. I keep on going and now it works okay, bogs a little on the up hills but no loss of power and the low rpms don't bog out any more.

I get back and my right head light blew out! well what the heck, so I go get a new headlight and got a new fuse container for my driving lights because I had notice it had blew too. so I get back and I am putting in the headlight and replacing the fuse container and I notice just under the computer (where all of the wiring is coming from), the battery handle with the sharp ends has dug into the wiring harness. Just Freakin great! I pulled back the handle out of the harness and notice quite a bit of wear and tear on the insulation, so I rewrapped it back in elecrical tape, Next weekend I am going to tear into the harness and see if there are any broken wires, or any wiring contacting another wire, I know this has to be it. At least I hope it is. I wish I could do it now but have to get back to work for now.
