Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
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.

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
