The problem could very well be your Idle Air Control Valve. If you're a handy person it costs about $40.00 and takes 10 minutes to replace. Best way to check it is to unplug it while it is running. If the valve is bad it will keep running. If it is good, unplugging it will shut the engine off, and that means it's doing its job. Happened w/ my dakota and I'm about to replace it in my Grand Cherokee.

You mean when you idle it turns off? i was having problems keeping my 96 grand cherokee laredo running whenever i would let off the gas. it would start while i had my foot on the pedal but would die if i let off it. when i came to a stop sign or light i would have to switch it into neutral so that i could have one foot on the brake and one on the gas. i took it to the shop and they just cleaned out a bunch of stuff out of some tubes (i don't no specifically what they did) and it worked perfect for a little while. but it still does this every now and then, i do the same thing i did before and just keep my foot on the gas. when it acts up i just have to give it enough gas to keep the RPM at or at a little less than 1 and as i speed up on the streets it seems to fix it. your best bet is to just take it to pep boys or something and see what they say.

SOURCE: generator light on 1996 jeep cherokee. what does

First clean the battery terminals & their connection to the battery. Check to see if the alternator belt is tight. Once started, connect an amp. meter to thebattery terminals. Black to black, red to red. If the reading is over 13.2, alternator is charging. If it is not, change the alternator. If it is over 13.2, you may need a new battery. Have a load test done at any reputable automotive store. Hope this helps & if it does please do the right thing & recommend this advice. Thanks

I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. It started stalling at idle and now it will not start.


sounds like a fuel supply problem-change the fuel filter and run some injector cleaner through it-it also could be a bad fuel pump-Denny

1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 L has trouble accelerating


often times the engine needs to warm up to normal operating temperature. this varies from makes and models. if you cant wait that long, having it idle for approximately 5 - 10 minutes should at least lessen the acceleration problem, but the longer you wait the better it will be on the engine.
