We have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee,ran good then quit,has 8 volts to the coil,the coil isn't firing.Has new parts inside the distributor,new coil,a computer off another Jeep Grand Cherokee,has the same...

If there is only 8 volts to the coil, that is your problem. There should be battery voltage (12.2) volts to the coil with the ignition switch turned on. Connect a voltmeter between the DARK GREEN/BLACK wire at the ignition coil and the POSITIVE battery post. Turn the key on. If the volt meter reads more than 0.3 volts then you have a voltage-drop (high resistance) problem on your coil B+ circuit. The coil is powered by the Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay - this is the MOST LIKELY source of high resistance in this circuit.

I own a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, i took the battery out, put it back in about 2 weeks later. and now it won't start...just clicks repeatitly. replaced the Crankshaft position sensor, throttle...

Check that the battery has full voltage (must have 12 volts or better and able to withstand a 200amp load for fifteen seconds and be able to snap back to full voltage immediately after test) and that connections are clean and tight. If you have replacement ends on the cables, make sure that there is no corrosion where the wire attaches to the end under the straps.

Try checking the driver side firewall electrical harness. There was apparently a bulletin issued for problems related to it. I had a somewhat similar problem which was corrected by direct wiring instead of using the harness. This was done at a Jeep dealer.

No power to distributor

is the voltageon your battery still above 12.5 volts if not depending on the impact of the collision your battery plates might have touched and shorted out so check the voltage at the battery otherwise find out what the voltage should be at the distributer i am pretty sure that it is more than 8 volts if so trace that wire and see if there is any problems there check your dist ground aswell.
