Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My car died a couple of days ago when I was driving. The codes P0505 and P0123 appeared. I replaced the sensors and the car still won't start and P0505 was still showing up

    My '99 Cherokee Sport has the same issue. I found out that my sister had been driving it for about 3 or 4 days without a gas cap and it stalled and wasn't able to start/stay running. It would start once in a while but would die right after starting. And if I stepped on the gas pedal it would die even faster. Checked for fuel pressure at the releif valve and a few drops cam out and not a squirt. I had codes P0505 - Idle Air Control Motor Circuit, P0122 and P0123 - Trottle Position Sensor Low/High. I replaced the TPS and dropped the tank (it was full) and tested the fuel pump and was ok so I replaced the Fuel Pressure Regulator and pump strainer/screen (they were pretty dirty). What and where is the "Idle Control Motor"? Cant seem to find it or any info in my Haynes manual.

    The codes indicate a problem in the circuit, it can be the sensor, the wiring the computer and so on, replacing a sensor without proper testing is like throwing money away.

The idle air control valve is on the throttle body below the throttle positioning sensor. To test first, use a test light on the connection coming to it with the vehicle running. Rev the motor and each terminal should make the light flash. In this case it is most likely the sensor. If they do not flash it is in the wiring or pcm

Error code P0123 and will not shift into OD


IDK if you have more than one problem. Code P0123: throttle position sensor/switch a circuit high input. Plausible causes would include, TPS not mounted correctly, TPS not properly adjusted, Wiring to the TPS is damaged (ground wire touching another wire), or the TPS sensor is defective. Your symptoms could be caused by an electrical or a mechanical failure. First repair this code and see if it fixes your driveability issue. Please write back and let me know how you are making out, good luck.

P0123, p0155, p0306


Well it really doesn't matter much. I would probably clear the codes and see which ones come back first.
Code 123 is for the throttle position sensor signal being out of range. Could be the sensor or a wiring problem.
Code 155 is for a problem with the heater circuit going to O2 sensor bank 2 sensor 1. Thats on the side with cylinder two if you have a V6 engine. Could be the sensor but its usually the lack of power for the heater.
Code 306 is for loss of power from cylinder 6 which could be mechanical, fuel, or spark related.
The three codes are not connected to each other. And trouble codes are not a statement to replace parts, only what to test.

Code P0123-THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT HIGH and code P0068-MANIFOLD PRESSURE/THROTTLE POSITION CORRELATION. Without having the vehicle to properly test, and based on the information I have it sounds like your throttle position sensor has kicked the bucket. Replacing the sensor with a new one should solve your problem.

1998 chevy s10 driving along and engine shut down.after sitting 10 min.it started but was rough.went 100.ft and it shut off again.sat for a while.it started and ran a couple miles like nothing was ever...


if it shuts off while driving and will not start back up for at least 10 minutes, then it may be the crank sensor doing this. is check engine light on! if so get it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner, auto-zone will scan for free. if light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all. good-day ! crank sensor timing will be out of sync. it controls timing and sends info to pcm.

2000jgc shuts off while driving. replaced crank shaft sensor, tighten battery connects, no check engine light comes on, no codes avalible. at times one codes does come up when check engine comes o2 sensor...


Have you checked the map sensor? I have known a few vehicles that did this. Sometimes it would go 5 miles, other times 30. Martin, they would get the same code, O2 sensor. If so, I would try to replace that and it probably will solve the issue. The car would die a few times a day. If you have anymore questions, let me know Martin. I am here to help you.

Cmp And Ckp are your cam and crank sensors. Basically whats going on is one of those sensors are malfunctioning causing the system to adjust its resources. ie the pcm guesses how fast the cam or crank is turning and adjust timing as nessessary. Pull the crank sensor and inspect for damage. do the same for cam. You may need a book for there locations. Also using a test meter, check there output signals for correct voltage. This should point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

First off, I think you bought a raft of stuff you didn't need on that repair job! The sound of it at this time is that probably the fuel pump is about gone.You need to measure the fuel pressure (engine running) at the fuel rail (the test port looks like a tire valve) above the injectors. The pressure should be in the 45 to 55 PSI range. If the pump is toast, it will be much lower. The pump resides in the fuel tank. You probably have the check engine light on. If the code(s) are read out with a scanner, it will likely point to the fuel pump.
