SOURCE: 2002 grand cherokee 2.7 crd cuts out

Ok... using a digital ohmeter (if you don't have a scan tool) check the throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor and the manifold pressure sensor (MAP). Instructions for testing are too long for me to write them out, but can be found in any decent repair manual. As a last resort, you can swap parts from another known good vehicle (maybe from a friend) this won't damage anything unless you break something during r&r. I'm leaning towards the tps, but on this electronic junk, everything feeds off of everything else and it's easy to get fooled... could even be the crank sensor. Sorry to be so vauge but without being there and driving/testing myself I can't honestly be positive enough for a definite answer. (you did change the fuel filter, right?)

SOURCE: Grand Cherokee a non-starter

Check the glow plug rail, Its easy to do, get a thick electric cable and hold it on the positive side of the battery and then onto the Rail connecting the glow plugs, do this for 20-30 seconds and try to start the engine, or better still get a friend to start the engine while you hold the cable on.
Diesel engines work on heat and compression, so if your glow plugs are weak then you wont get the heat needed to create combustion.

Hello,same as Matt,first my horn didn't work,is it unplugged,then I plug the horn,does not function .unlocks remotely and then the alarm begins to function!unplug quickly..I am French.THANK YOU

posting to USA Forum with a French car.
ok, its a CRD diesel, common rail diesel. we have no books on it here, nor car. my guess near same car as our Liberty
does car drive ok? engine run ok, and all things on car work ok but your listed items?
So the alarm is failing.
So the doors unlock ok, with the key fob, but then the alarm goes off. Id say, it needs help. get car serviced, or at least scanned.
if both key fobs fail, (do you have both, if no OOPS) get it serviced.
so does engine start and run, after unplugging horn.
does it?
if not does it crank over,(start spin over engine>?"
if no , then battery is dead.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 Mercedes CRD will not start

does it start and run for 3 seconds on test fuel

yes, engine ok, EFI bad.

no, bad engine, engine must be good to run.

EFI cant run bad engines..

so compression at spec......????

why beat the EFI to death,

all engines run on test fuel.

with gas engines, takes spark and good engine

on diesel, takes only good engine. simple huh (and some air)

for test fuel try diesel in a spray bottle into the injection port.

google this

or use youtube on test fuel on any diesel car. or truck

this is called basics....... basic basics.

1: good engine, and pumps air ok. (must breath)

2: good fuel.

3: test fuel works now. if not check above.

Both malfunction indicator light and electronic throttle control warning light is burning after I had my 2006 jeep crd overland serviced. The car is losing power wile driving. What do I need to solve

have the fault codes read and replace the faulty units. Ask the service person if they pressure cleaned the engine as that quite often causes problems with water getting into the connections and shorting out
