I need to confirm some information. The engine is rotating, just not starting, right? When you put the key into the "on" position, do you hear the fuel pump prime itself? You'll hear a hum sound for a couple of seconds. If not, spray some starting fluid into the throttle body and see if the engine starts. If it does start with the starting fluid, then shuts off again, the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay is bad. I'd change the relay first, if that doesn't help, the fuel pump is bad.

    Check your ignition fuses and relays. Trade places with another relay that is configured the same. Check your chassis grounds. Somehow you suddenly lost power to the computer. This is going to take some electrical back probing. Get a wiring diagram. There aren't that many that your looking for. You'll be looking for common links between the ign. switch, power to other sensors, and the ecm.

2001 jeep grand cherokee,pulled dash out to change blender doors, put it back together, now shows gas gauge empty, and lights up, and key with circle cross on, won't start.


You will need to remove the cluster and make sure you plugged in all the connector to the cluster, the antitheft system runs throught the cluster also and you said fuel gauge doesnt work so i would have to say theres a bad connection or you forgot to plug a connector in. good day.

My 1998 jeep cheorkee engine turns but won't crank, could it be the computer or what?


it's highly unlikely, there are only two things that can make this happen, not getting fuel (fuel pump failure, fuel pump regulator) or not getting ignition (bad coils, ignition module failure, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor)

1998 jeep cherokee 4.0 it cranks but does not start tride puting gas or starter fluid and still it doesnt start I think Im not getting any spark


Your dealership can read the codes entered into your car's computer every time it malfunctions. Same problem as yours, however, also gets worse, back up lights won't work, sticks in park (in the gas stationing) (very embarrassing), will only run with foot on gas, etc. It was the "neutral safety switch". $500 fix but runs and starts perfectly all the time.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
