jeep shut off and won't turn back over!!

husband has a 2003 jeep Cherokee 4.0L.. he was driving it down the road and it completely shut off on him.. we have changed the fuel pump and filter, the cam shaft sensor and the crank shaft sensor... our neighbor mentioned the timing chain?? but it still won't turn over. any advice on what else it could be?

Sounds like alternator could be going out/out. If it goes out your jeep will use the battery until it dies. Usually w/in a few minutes. Lights will go out/radio does etc. and then nothing.

When you say it won't turn over, I assume the starter runs but the engine won't fire. It could be the coil pack or the main power relay in the electrical Power Distribution Center. I've heard you can swap the horn relay with it to see if it works.
