Check Neutral Sasfety Switch, located top trans, its possible that mis-adjust there.

Other possibility, Anti-Theft system activated... some THEFT warning on cluster?

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

The CPS is one of the first places to start, but remember that the signal goes thru the ECM first, which ultimately supplies power to the coil, I've had to replace the ECM on my 96 Grand Cherokee 4.0 3 times. The dealer wanted to replace the crack and cam sensors, but it was only the computer that was bad.  Sorry I cant give you any definitive answers but I did get it to turn over when I hit the computer with a wrench!

SOURCE: 1996 jeep cherokee not starting

The most common cause is usually the crank sensor, but at this point I would not jump to conclusions without testing it as well as all electrical connections pertaining to the ignition system etc anyone can fix a problem by just changing everything but thats not the best way to go!

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

Time to meter voltage. Start with the 12V circuit. Are you getting voltage at the coil. Does the voltage fluctuate when the engine cranks? If yes to both check the high voltage circuit. Start with the coil then the distributor then each plug. You should be able to find where the spark is failing.

The power is on and off so starting is hard


Need to try the crank shaft position senor. It work off the turning of the crank. It the sensor goes bad then the engine has no idea what position the crank is in, so therefore you won't get it to start. I had to replace a few of these on Jeeps , this is a big problem for Jeeps.
