Lost power then died

NEED HELP!
I was driving to work this morning and I suddenly lost all power and the jeep died. I tried to restart it and it would turn over but never start. I have a 2000 XJ sport v6. I think it might be the CPS but I am curious if anyone else has had this problem too?

I just had this problem with the wifes ZJ. But it was the ground wire for the coil.

My ground wire is very corroded so crossing my fingers that is it. Im gonna clean all the wires and replace any if i have to before buying a new crankshaft!

You may want to clean the battery posts too. Go to Walmart and get brass connectors for the battery, way less corrosive.

I put a new ground wire in and cleaned all the sensors and wires with electric cleaner. Still nothing...

Perhaps your alternator and/or your battery are toast.
