1996 zj

hey guys just pickedup a 96 limited with the 5.2. it starts and runs but dies within 5 seconds of running. start, stall, start stall.....continued. the asd relay clicks like crazy under the hood. also the flashing lights relay clicks too?.... i read somehwere else about the torx screws on the pcm, removed and nothing...... no engine light comes on at all. i am currenty boosting it when starting as battery eventually dies. i am starting to think it is the pcm. also, what about the throttle body sensor, would it cause this>?

The alarm is going off (but no horn???) and is disabling the engine. Unlock it with the remote and key (in passenger door or hatch).

the horn does not go off if the alarm is tripped by a battery reset.
everytime you try to start it you are resetting the battery
buy a battery
hook it up
turn off alarm
then start and you will be good to go
