If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.

I would make sure you have voltage to the coil. Could be a fuse or relay problem. Is the check engine light on when you turn the key on ?

Not geting electrical power to distributer or coil


Check the Crank Shaft position sensor which is located on the drivers side of the transmission bell housing and will have three wires going to it. Also check the Cam shaft sensor which is located under the rotor button inside the distrubtor cap (it looks like a dust cover). If either of these have failed you'll get no spark.

The power is on and off so starting is hard


Need to try the crank shaft position senor. It work off the turning of the crank. It the sensor goes bad then the engine has no idea what position the crank is in, so therefore you won't get it to start. I had to replace a few of these on Jeeps , this is a big problem for Jeeps.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee No Start


I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

My 1996 jeep cherokee sports is turning over but not starting. No voltage to input side of coil. ASD relay seems fine, crankshaft position sensor??


The CPS is one of the first places to start, but remember that the signal goes thru the ECM first, which ultimately supplies power to the coil, I've had to replace the ECM on my 96 Grand Cherokee 4.0 3 times. The dealer wanted to replace the crack and cam sensors, but it was only the computer that was bad.  Sorry I cant give you any definitive answers but I did get it to turn over when I hit the computer with a wrench!
