Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
I had a similar problem. My mech told me it was from putting it in park before it is completely stopped. Your vehicle is reacting like its in neutral or out of gear, since it will only start when it is in park, yet it will start with a push. If this is an automatic your speaking of this could be your problem. He said it is common in Jeeps. I have not replaced the part but I have not had any trouble starting as long as I make sure that when I park my wheels are straight & I take my foot completely off the brake after I put in in park, then shut it off. It starts every time.

When you have a no start is there any power at all? If not look for a bad ASD (auto-shutdown relay) or corrosion in the terminals of the ASD. Another dead giveaway is a clicking from the passenger side of dash while trying to start
