The Dreaded STALL

I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L V8. I have had the stalling issue everyone seems to have. I have a check engine light on for the crank sensor... Replaced it and the Camshaft sensor. When it wouldnt crank up, I replaced the fuel filter, started right up. So now im at a check engine light for two things I have already replaced, Afghanistan did not stress me out as much as this jeep... Any ideas from anyone who may know what the issue is?

Verify 5 volts at the TPS across the two outside pins on the connector. Disconnect TPS, turn key on and read the voltage. This supply voltage from the PCM is shared with the CKP and CPS. If it is good, double check the connections to the sensors.

Some people have had bad luck with the BWD sensors.

Use Mopar parts for the sensors. The aftermarket parts can act bad right out of the box for ZJ's. Go to a JY and pull one for cheap to see if that is the problem.
