    No starty :cry:
    No power to coil?
    Would one suspect crank sensor failure!

    I have a 96 also. It did this one time too. I didn't check power to the coil but it was the crankshaft sensor. Can't remember if it did turn over or not though.

    Buddy of mine had an old XJ and nothing but problems with the crank shaft sensor, throttle pos sensor, coils, etc. Best to buy a scan tool rather than throw money at it. He was too cheap to buy the scan tool and replaced $1000s in parts before he found the problem. Can't remember what it was, it was a few years back.

    It's the crank position sensor connector . Go to radio schack and get a contact cleaner [ neutrol ] , unplug the connector and spray the cleaner on both ends. If you can't find the cleaner , WD-40 would work as well. If you take your vehicle to the dealer , they would suggest replacing expensive parts :220v: . It's a known problem with cherokees and a money maker for the dealerships. . The sensor operates at very low voltage , and when the voltage drops below 0.7 volts the computer will not send signal to the distributor , hence no spark . The connector can be located by the wire coming from the bellhousing up to the rear of the cylinderhead .
