if you had corroded battery terminal look around the battery +ve terminal to see if there is another smaller guage wire that may have corroded through and fallen off. The big cable you cleaned powers the starter , the other wire powers the ignition and may need connecting.
Maybe your starter relay is bad, which will not allow current to the starter, making it seem like a dead battery. Could also be the actual wiring to the starter, from the ignition, is bad or the ignition switch also. Just a few suggestions.
Could be loose fuse box (rear wiring or fuses), jiggle it (or them) slightly to check. Could be ignition contact, push the key in or jiggle it to check. Lesser chance of defective or loose connectors elsewhere such as dash switches themselves. If other accessories are not working there may be a main power line to the fuse box from the battery positive connector that is corroded. Most times this smaller red wire has corroded at the battery cable.
I had similar prob - no rhyme nor reason as to when, where or why it wouldn't start. After two new starters the shop finally found a starter wire/cable that was corroded on the inside. Mech' could move it back and forth and it would / would not start. Changed cable six months ago - no problems since. Hope it helps.
There are broken wires in the wiring harness between the frame and your driver's side door. These wires control all the windows and door locks in a 95 Jeep. Same thing happened to me. You will have to cut the rubber boot to get it off and check which wires are broken and repair them.
I have a 95 Grand Cherokee, its got this built-in 'kill switch' (lol) that i had to figure out - the alarm wouldn't stop going off until i put the key in the driver door, then turned it Right-Left-Right...
Your probably already aware of this nuisance, but i thought i'd post it it just in case.
