Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
Turns over fine but will not fire...changed coil..pickup coil...ign sw... coil and plug wires etc...no power to coil?...crank sensor? ign module?computer? is there an ign relay like the fuel pump relay?
I'd try an ignition module based upon what you have already replaced. Depending upon which engine you have and what month it was assembled, You could have one of several ignition systems (seems like they were using up whatever was on the shelves) any diagrams are cryptic as to any relays used etc. I'd try that, then physically begin tracing the coil power back to it's source. Actually, the car is old enough that I might even consider building my own ignition system and discarding the junk they used when they built it! But, that's somewhat complicated.
