Should be on the bellhousing on the drivers side just where you need rubber arms to reach it.Should have no continuity between b&c terminals (check with ohmeter) Harness plug is usually on the drivers side between the master cyl and the back of the engine (unless someone moved it)

SOURCE: 1994 jeep wrangler no fire
Crank position sensor has a higher failure rate than it should...however i would not change it "at random" Check for continuity between b&c terminals of the sensor with a digital ohmeter.
There should be no continuity between them (b&c should be marked on connector) No continuity reading is same as when probes are not connected to each other.
I really dislike when people try and help and use terms that owners can't understand ... "check your zxy and qtr then add an abc" dosen't seem helpful. I hope I am as clear as I can be!!!

wall5552: there were two engines used in 1992 Jeep Wranglers.
A 2.5 liter and a 4.0 liter. HOWEVER>>>> The location for the crank angle sensor is the same for both.
It is located on the bell housing up near the front at about the 10:00 PM position.
The Cam position sensor is located in the Distributor on both engines as well.

There are several things you can do if you haven't done so already, Check voltage at ignition coil, as soon as the engine starts to turn over there should be voltage. If not, the crank sensor is not triggering the ECM quickly.... on 98-99 wranglers, this was a problem area. Check terminal connectors at the ECM, clean and secure, another area of concern.The module on the side of the throttle body is the air idle control 'motor' as jeep calls it. Over time they tend to carbon up and it results in bad air/fuel mixture and yet fails to send a fault code, you can remove & clean also the O2 sensor in front of the cat. convertor.remove & clean. Check fuel pressure, you should have some residual PSI. Treat fuel system with a good treatment...I like the Lucas products, their fuel system treatment and injector cleaner burns hot & clean.
I hope these suggestions help...and the wrangler returns to top form...good luck.

After you crank it for a while, take out one of the spark plugs. If it is dry then you have a fuel issue. If it is wet and smells like gas you have a spark issue. Find that out and report back and then we can get more specific.
