Won't start, no fire, gauges quit.

I have a 1997 wrangler sport 4.0. Everything was running good until yesterday. Now it wont start. I am not getting any fire out of the plugs. My fuel and amp gauge also quit working at the same time. I have checked all mini and maxi fuses under the hood and behind the glove box. Any ideas?

Does the starter turn over?Are you getting any power to the fuses in the PDC???If you are getting juice to the starter and PDC I would say it is in your ignition switch.

I just noticed you said no fire from plugs so I guess the starter is turning the engine over so I missed than at first.Are you getting power to the PDC?If so the next thing would be the ignition switch or crank sensor.

Yes the PDC has power and all of the mini and maxi fuses in it are good. Is there another fuse box other than the one behind the glove box? When I turn the key on the dash lights and buzzers all work except fuel and amp. I have taken out sparkp;ugs to check for fire and get nothing. I also have an edge programmer hooked up but unhooked it and did not help.

when you turn the key on, for the first few seconds do the warning lights come on for the bulb check? check engine light, brake light, and so on should come on for the first few seconds, then go off. does that happen?
