Found out the key on my 02 is chipped when I had it copied at home depot.

Is the key light flashing on the dash?

Checking your fuel pressure would be a starting point.

My 1997 jeep wrangler just shut off and now it keeps blowing out 30 am block fuses

Obviously there is a serious short somewhere to cause this.
I would start by disconnecting the heavy starter lead and alternator charge lead, then try again with another fuse. If it holds, then try connecting the alternator. Most likely cause is a blown starter motor, or damaged starter solenoid.
Second most likely is serious alternator fault.

If this does not solve it - please call back with more info before rating.
Thank you.

Staring issue... 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder(manual tran). recently I've noticed that in the morning or after it's sat for while, when I turn the key the engine cranks for a couple of seconds before...

instead of cranking, just leave key on for a minute...if there isn't a delay starting after that it may be a bad drainback valve in the pump. You can either live with it for a while or replace pump...but check that it's not an injector leaking into engine first.(usually if that's the case, leaving key on will lengthen start time and give a puff of black smoke on startup)
