Electrical Issue

Hi guys,
I have a 93 Grand Cherokee 5.2 L . It blew the 2 X 60 Amp Alternator fuses under the hood as it left me standed. I have since replaced the fuses and have no power going to the coil. It turns over but no fire. Ive been tracing wires to find a short but am dumbfounded. Any one had this issue before and can steer me in the right direction

F2 supplies power to the automatic shutdown relay which in turn applies power to the coil.


The PCM provides ground to the coil similar to old style mechanical points.

Check the bottom side of the auto shutdown relay for numbers and post on forum thread.

The FSM shows an 18awg Dark Green / Black wire from the ASD Relay to a two wire connector at the coil.

So you have no spark?? Do you have no fuel either? Check crank sensor and cam sensor/magn pickup (in dist) for power in/output.

If the coil does not have 12 volt power when the ignition is on, nothing else matters right now.

When you replace crank sensor check fuse, connector, and wiring for damage or corrosion.

The crank sensor had actually broke off form its housing causing it to drop a bit blowing 2X60 AMP fuses for the alternator. Replaced the fuses and crank sensor, fired up perfectly. All is well in Jeep town. Now shes up for sale!!!
