Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
it sounds like a poor earth connection, mostly this is either from the battery terminal or from the battery lead to the car body, the wire is either black or brown and should have a good connection metal to metal to and from the car body. please note just the black wire not the red one. there are 3 main earths on a car thats the biggest one the other goes to the gear box and the 3rd is in the boot normally.
if the earth is poor the the battery is over compensateing to start the car and keep it going hence it dies after so long, and will most likely still start the nest day after it has been left a while.
hope this helps
