Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a 1993 V-8 with factory alarm removed, no alarms present in the vehicle, when I start it it fires up then dies. if I rev the motor from start it'll run, but as soon as I remove my foot from the gas it stalls out. I've replaced the battery and alternator. Before replacing the alternator the old one tested good under normal conditions but under load it failed. after replacing the alternator it does the start and die procedure. The old alternator read 14V on the dash and the new one reads about 10v. I had both tested at the local Kragen and both looked good. I'm at a loss. I'm about ready to pull all fuses to all accessories and go through them one at a time to see if there's a power draw somewhere. I've also heard that this almost sounds like a crank sensor issue but I'm not thinking so because it doesn't die randomly.
Sounds like the idling solenoid. this solenoid when powered by 12 volts, would let a small amount of gas to the carburetor or intake line which ever you are using. if it is a fuel injection, then there could be a problem with the computer that monitors idling.
you don't have an idling.
