Electrical?!?!

I recently bought an 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee, private seller, which was running fine. Now all the warning lights on dash come on and and and A.C. cuts out. Plus, driving it sometimes seems to bog down. I need help, any answers or suggestions.

I've heard the harnesses at the bottom of the steering wheel can come loose, the ones in the engine bay on that computer, and to check the ground points. Just remove the negativr bat cable disconnect all harnesses and squirt some dielectric grease in there and reconnect. The tighten all power and ground cables. Reattach negative cable to batterh and see if you're good.

Ok, thanks. Hopefully it'll fix the little lag it has sometimes when I'm driving as well.
