Hi Cynthia. Thanks for submitting your question to us today. I’m not sure if a wiring harness is the root issue of the symptoms you’re experiencing. Usually when this issue occurs, it’s due to fuel delivery or ignition system problem. A damaged mass air flow sensor, clogged fuel or air filter and even a damaged throttle body can be the issues on the fuel side. With ignition system components, worn out spark plugs, plug wires (coil packs) and other problems could be the issue. I think the best way to resolve your problem is to have a professional mobile mechanic complete an onsite inspection before replacing parts.
