The last two times I had that happen. It was a crank position sensor. But it could be a few other things. Like a bad coil, but hopefully not a bad pcm.I have never had a Cherokee sit that long.Since you have replaced your ignition system you have a good chance its not your ignition system, but with a high failure rate on new parts, who knows. Unless something isnít hooked up correctly. When I had the problem the engine cranked and there was no spark,but I never checked the injectors.The crank position sensor sends a signal to your pcm which turns your coil on and off. There about $35. You could go to the xj modified section and ask how to test if your crank position sensor is out. I just got lucky my last two times, I didnít have a deeper problem. Not sure how much you already know,but I will send pics of the part and location anyway. Itís a real pain to get to sometimes.
