What Fuse that controls what? Way too little info provided. First i would check the wire from trans to make sure that it is not arcing out it may have rubbed on something other than that check the eaths. Check the reverse switch, and any wires leading to and from the transmission that look as if they're possibly carrying voltage. wiring harness behind the valve cover on a 4.0 is a very common problem area for shorts. i am a master Chrysler, Jeep... tech. i would bet real cash the problem is there. look at the drivers side at the firewall. good luck! I AGREE: check the engine compartment wiring harness- it may be chaffing on the end of the fuel rail near the firewall. reinsulate the damaged wire and zip tie the harness to the one above it.

You just purchased your first jeep A 98 TJ wrangler While driving it went dead you had a new alternator installed and had the computer check and you can't figure out what is wrong No electrical Please?

try checking out the battery cables. If they are bad they can cause horrific electrical problems. Next check the grounds in the engine compartment. Next check the relays for the ignition on in the power distribution block box in the engine compartment. Somewhere to start.

When holding gas pedal steady while driving acts like your giving it more or less pedal but I'm not is this a bad sensor somewhere or the computer 92 stanza xe?

Sounds like a vaccum leak some where, check all small hoses in engine compartment that they are not disconnected or boken/cracked.
