Re: power steering pump
First check the distance from the bracket mount points on the block, to the pump mount points on both brackets. If distance is different then the brackets are different. If they are the same, you may need to either change pump itself to one that matches engine year. However, if there is sufficient room on the pump shaft, any shop that rebuilds pumps can re-position the pulley to your specs, or replace the pulley with one that has a different offset.

sound like lack of lubrication at the steering joints, your ball joints need greasing and make sure you bleed power steering system, check power steering fluid level.if low more like power steering system full of air need bleeding.
Theres no fuse, it operates of a circuit breaker with the windows, this is located on the pass/side kick panel.you may have a bad module or switch for sunroof, heres a wiring diagram to help you, make sure your getting power to module and switch and also power and ground to motor,good luck, hope this is helpful.
What you brought is an tank and unit from 1995 JGC. from 1993 till 1995 they have the same fuel pump. 96'er Jeeps start with OBD - Systems and they have other fuel pumps. You can't change the plug ins, because you may have other fuel filter in your Granny. Check filter and fuel lines if they fit with the unit you brought. If not, you need another unit from a real 96'er Jeep
Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.
as you mentioned, the pulley is pressed on. Many parts stores have machine shops that can move the pulley on the shaft using a press. It's best that you bring the old pump with you so whoever does the work can match the old one. Otherwise, measure the best you can. This is not a "trick" but actually how this is done!
Check with the junkyard where you got the pump...you may need to change the pump bracket with the pump, or use a different pump. You don't have a separate tensioner the pump is on a slide mount and is the tensioner (why the parts guy is a parts guy not a tech).
I have recently had to work on 3 different jeep cherokees 92, 98, 99 and have encountered a similar problem on the 92. The serpentine belt broke and needed replacement, it connects all the major functions in your motor including your power steering, fan, water pump and yes altenator...after replacing your new powersteering pump (which by the way is a real pain in the **** with having to mount the new pulley...)
The jeep wouldnt start and I also had a drained battery so I had to use a jump box to get it started...there is no such thing as a safety for power steering...
