There are several things you can check:
Distributor cap and sparks - check for moisture.
Accelerator manifold (the thing on the top of the engine which opens to mix oxygen with the fuel) - oil any hinges and clear any water/debris.
Fuel - I know it sounds silly, but it has happened to people.
Starter motor - check connections.
Fuses - Check main fuse box for starter and other electrical systems' fuses; are they broken?

Is there a clinking sound from the engine?
Does the starter motor turn?
Attempting to start the engine too many times may result in the engine flooding with fuel, preventing enough air from being able to mix, thus preventing ignition.
You may need to bleed the engine of fuel.

The randomness of the power coming onto the electronics is indicated by a loose wire, you should have a shop technician check your wiring, however wiring can be very costly.

I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

Do you have power?
battery might be drained cause your alternator is not charging anymore, 2003, seems about time for a new alternator, those vehicles consume lots of power cause pretty much everything is electric, lots of motors and servos, so they depend a lot on a good power source from the battery. If alternator doesnt charge it, no power...

have power system checked.

Good luck.

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.
