I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Chaerokee will crank won't start; have replaced computer module, guages inside have no response, checked voltage from computer to crank shaft sensor, white and black wire measures only.05 volts, traced white and black wire back to the computer ohmms out perfect. Removed computer from running '98 cherokee no change, put my computer on that cherokee and it runs perfect. I am really stumped.

Check if its fuel or spark problem-Do below

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

What about the ignition system-w/o spark there's no combustion -

There is no spark no fuel no power to the coil no power to the crankshaft sensor as I mentioned earlier as I understand if that circuit is compromised it also shuts off the fuel I have swapped computers as I mentioned earlier I even put mine in another vehicle and it worked fine. But I still do not know how to figure out where the power to crankshaft sensors origonates from.
