97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo keep dying upon ignition

When I start the car it will usually die within a few seconds, but the check engine light doesn't stay on. I'll wait a few minutes and re-start it up; it will idle a little rough and then be ready to go, but it might still die when backing up.
Before this started happening daily, I had a new battery put in, as well as the fuel pump changed, and an O2 sensor changed. So my mechanic said it could be a few things: the coil, the fact that my alarm/remote start doesn't work anymore, or the computer. He changed the coil, we had the alarm/rem. start removed and are in the process of looking for a reconditioned computer... anything else that it could be??
and can a computer from a different (but close) year/model still be re-programmed for my car?? I'm sorry, I don't know the engine size, but it's only a 2-wheel drive...
