Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I want to say to simply try a new Ignition switch and to reset your Inertia switch for the fuel pump. The gauge for the fuel level would be about the only gauge which will work when you turn the Key. Your water temp, oil pressure, and Amp gauge need to have the engine running to show something and your engine is not running.
The fuel pump should cycle. The coil should have spark. The engine cranks. You know you are getting power to the Starter side of the Ignition switch. You don't know if you are getting power to the Run side of the Ignition switch. You should be getting spark to the coil when you crank from the Starter side of the Ignition switch and you say you are not.
I have heard of the Antitheft devices interrupting the spark or the starter relay to prevent theft. I have not heard of one which disables a fuel gauge and prevents the fuel pump from priming the system. I think your best bet is to get your fuel gauge working and the fuel pump to cycle.
This is why I suggest the most basic thing, the Ignition switch and its harness.
Perhaps if you change the Ignition switch you will find corrosion or a bad pin connector. I see no one has attempted to help you for 2 days and I guess they are stumped. You can use the reply feature and keep me advised.
