My 1998 jeep cheorkee engine turns but won't crank, could it be the computer or what?

it's highly unlikely, there are only two things that can make this happen, not getting fuel (fuel pump failure, fuel pump regulator) or not getting ignition (bad coils, ignition module failure, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor)

No power to coil i have replaced the distripertor cap,rotter,crankshaft positioning sensor,battery,and the coil .i also checked all fuses in both fuse pannels. the jeep ran fine before vacation, older son...

well those jeeps are funny little critters when it comes to the battery terminals believe it or not if the battery terminals get to corroded it will crank most of the time and usually start but wont idle i would clean terminals real good and and charge it up real good and try it but like i said they usually at least start in ur case i would check the grounds and also u say it is a 1998 jeep cherokee is it a grand cherokee with a 4.0 straight 6 cause they usually have a coil pack for each cylynder mounted under a ignition module bolted on the head

also ignition module may b at fault but my money is on the batt or a bad ground if all hat happened is the battery got ran down

check the wires to the coil you might have disconnected 1 by accident,then try looking at the cps(crank position sensor)can be checked by an ohms meter for resistance.its on the back of the motor in top of the bell housing

1998 jeep grand cherokee will not start

Try resetting the asd "auto shut down fuse had a similar problem the jeep would crank but did not get spark or gas also check your fuel pump? and the asd relay may be bad it will prevent the jeep from getting no spark and will not fire some jeeps have security problems

1996 4.0 litre petrol cherokee cranks but not start

5 volts is correct. Those sensors work off of a 5 volt reference signal.

have you checked to see if the alternator is working? If it isn't the battery is being drained. You may have lights and all but the cranking power is drained therefore you don't have enough juice to start it. So check the alternator and if possible do an obd 2 scan at autozone or advance auto
