Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
New PCM added and the keys recoded. Jeep ran great for 4 days and then just stalled at a gas station. I pushed it out of the way and it sat for 5 minutes and started again. I drove apporx 4 blocks and then it just stopped altogether and would not start again. No power anywhere. I had no dash display lights, no odometer reading, no power anywhere.
Your issue seems more related to the wiring harness and starting and charging circuits when no dash appears.
The Crank position sensor only gives the ECU a reference point as to which cylinder to fire, not much beyond that.
I would recheck the PMC installation, all steps, connections and mounting screws and make sure the connectors are fully seated- they may not have been initially for various reasons, and the vibrations of driving may have shifted the connectors enough to reveal partial contact. also check the bulkhead connector, make sure it is tight. Check the battery cable down to the starter and over to the power distribution block. Make sure all fuses are clean and fully seated in the power distribution block. Check engine block to frame and body jumpers- make sure they are all in place.
Also check alternator wiring. It would not hurt to check the electrical portion of the ignition switch- this is down near the firewall on top of the steering tube. Make sure that connector is fully seated. Normally a pin holds it in place to make it difficult to remove. Sometimes it can distort.
Plus anything that looks like a fusible link along the way- test it- gentle tension will reveal if it is the source of problem.

Have you checked the ignition switch to see if there is power in and out?
