Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport
Interesting. They haven't used generators in over 50 yrs.
But yes that was the warning light for the generator.
If you have a volt meter that would tell you what the system is doing.
If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, you would need to check the connections at the starter for voltage and ground.
And the red warning lights would normally come on until the engine starts.

Did you got the fuel pressure checked.As you say it sometimes not starting and sometimes starting, this indicates that fuel pump is bit weak, its not letting fuel to the engine.Try spraying starter fluid to the throttle body and then see is it starting with starter fluid.When you face the no start problem like this at that time spray the starter fluid and see if its starting up right.If it starts then its fuel pump and filter issue.The pump is loosing its pressure.-------------But if the same no start problem with starter fluid too, then it can be air filter blocked issue or transmission trans-axle issue or shift bezel issue or it can be low tire pressure issue.----------

If the tapping done on the relay is to short or bypassing it then you may have an issue with the relay. I suggest to have it replaced or try a known working one from a similar car. If it meant tapping or bypassing the wiring, inspect the line from the relay to the power. You may a have bad wires somewhere, like loose connections, exposed conductors, loose ground or corroded terminals including the ports where you plug your relay in.

My jeep has the same problem, while im driving it starts to sputter as if running out of gas. Then it died and wouldn't start. The no starting issue was my starter going out, I fixed that but the sputtering kept happening and proceeded to get worse. I found out that my gas cap pressure valve was sticking and not letting out pressure. I loosened the cap and it seems to be working so far. Try checking your gas cap.
