have you checked all ofyour fuses? usually when you hook up a battery backwads you end up blowing a fuse and or fry your alternator on older modeled vehicles as there is no protection for it.

Hi, I had simmilar problem with my 1993 JGC . I ran out of gas and it would not start until the next day. Then it will start and run until I put the brakes on tho stop and then it will die. It starts right back up. Ended up being the voltage regulator in the ECC/ECM. It is at the mechanics shop right now waiting for the ECC to come in.I will post a follow up.

it is definitely the throttle position sensor, had this problem, sometimes the OBD code won't even come up. as it gets worse your jeep will stop starting right away

SOURCE: runs for 20 seconds then dies
Tryreplacing tfuel pump or at least have the PSI checked. a failing fuel pump will get worse and worse until dead. What happens is when the pump heats up it stars putting out less and less fuel until it starts to sputter and then die. When it cools off it runs fine again until it heats up again. Fuel cools the pump so make sure you have half a tank on hot days but sounds like it finally just gave out.
