Similar occurence happened withour 95 Cherokee. There is (in mine anyway) a crank position sensor mounted on the bell housing. They are notorious for dieing unexpectedly. Looking back at the firewall from the bumper, it is located at approximately 2 o'clock. Hope this helps.

The crank sensor went out on my wifes 96 jeep & I had no fire at all I also had no fuel pressure. The sensor was a dealer item & under $60.00 easy to replace. The tack in the dash wouldn't work when cranking with the bad sensor, but would show rpm's with a new sensor.
