You need to check the battery drain. Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and using a multimeter between the negative terminal of the battery and the now disconnected negative lead check the amperage which is being drawn from the battery. Your reading should settle anything between 0.03 and 0.20A but hopefully nearer the lower end. If it is above this then you will have to systematicly disconnect each electricrical item until you have a good reading. Once you have get a good reading on the multimeter you should be able have a good idea of what was causing the drain. Good luck

The Module in the Drivers Door is notorius for this problem. I would start by changing that first. Good luck to you. Thanks for using fixya!

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.
