You will need more than 3.4 volts to the coil. You should have 12v @ the positive side with the key on. If you attach a wire with a grounded spark plug to it and ground the signal side (-) you should get spark from a good coil.

Check your cigarette lighter/radio fuse(s) first. If the scanner doesn't pick up vehicle power from this circuit, it often will not do anything. Could still be a computer issue, but don't jump the gun.

Just had a 98 Grand Cherokee with no spark and no fuel pump. There was 3.6 volts coming to the ASD relay and fuel pump relay... There was a bad AC CLUTCH relay leaking voltage back through the CPU. Pulled it out and it fired right up. ... Got lucky, hope this helps you poor Jeep owners...
