Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
Two things... did you check power going to the coil? Should be 12v with key 'ON". There are also fuses in system labeled ignition check these. Other thing often overlooked... There is a sensor pickup in the distributor. if no signal coming from there... no spark (just like a set of points) This part is also called a a cam sensor.
Note: if timing chain is worn out of limits, it can give you really wierd symptoms and eventually a no start condition as well.
You probably fixed it by now, but this info may help someone else!!

The crank sensor is a common problem with these jeeps.
The sensor is on the top side of tranny bell housing on the drivers side.
