98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo electrical issues. need help!!

by jgerba - 3/19/10 12:26 PM

Hello all,
hoping someone can help me out here. I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and am at my wits end. The vehicle was running fine until one day went to start it and had no power. thought my battery was dead so tried to get it jumped and nothing. I did get it started but would not stay running unless you revved the engine, and when you put it in gear it would die out. Had to get it towed home because after sitting overnight the vehicle was completely dead.
Checked everything out and changed throttle position sensor, starter relay, cam shaft positioning sensor, ignition control switch, neutral safety switch, and alternator. checked all fuses and relays, battery is good and just got a new pcm today, and still nothing.
All wires are good as far as I know...have checked them all for power. Not getting any power to the ignition for some reason. Inside lights come on when door opens and dome lights work. Go to turn the key and absolutely nothing.
First day it died out there was clicking on the passenger side coming through what sounded like the speaker or somewhere under the glovebox.
just don't know what to do!
anyone please help!
