Question about Cars & Trucks
You probably have a bad fuel relay switch. It is located in the engine compartment in the fuse box. It costs about ten bucks and takes 2 minutes to change. I hate to say it but you probably didn't need a new fuel pump. If the relay is not the problem then it will be your fuel pressure regulator about $60. This part will affect your fuel gauge and cause intermittent starts and stalls or a no start. If your car sits for awhile the pressure will fall off and the car will start again but will not run well and it can stall out at anytime and not re-start.

Check your catalytic converter. If you are over 80k miles, these devices will wear in stages. The first stage of wear is slower gear change at cruising speeds when approaching any type of incline. Second stage is the engine light will reveal a faulty oxygen sensor. Because the converter is basically a "filter" built into the exhaust system, it wears by slowly clogging, which leads to no starts, no power, and sometimes a blown head gasket. If your mechanic removed the oxygen sensor before the converter, theres a strong chance it would start right up.

Between 100-140 thousand miles the fuel pumps go out on the 1993 cherokee. Its a fact. All parts are manufactured with the knowledge that it will last for a specific period of time then it dies. The relay switch was helpful for a brief while because there was still some juice in that pump, but now that it is gone it is gone.
If you don't see the fuse box under the dash in the driver leg area or beneath the radio check for a covered box under the hood. There should be a fuse spec guide on the lid of the box that tells you where specific wattage should go and for what purpose. But, your fuel pump problem will not be solved by a new fuse.
