    I have a 93 Grand with the exact same problem. First the fuel gauge would intermittantly drop to zero. Next thing you know, the engine would not start and the fuel gauge reads zero even though the tank is half full. Checked the shutoff relay to be OK. Don't know if it is wiring, sending unit, fuel pump or computer. Have any suggestions?

Will it try to start if you spray some carb cleaner in the throttle body? If so you need to check fuel pressure and if low, power to the fuel pump while cranking, the gauge not working could be a seperate issue. Could it be that the car is out of gas since the gauge doesn't work? Just asking. If so you may just need a sending unit. If you end up needing a fuel pump, you'll get a sender with it. I've never seen a sender and a pump go out at the exact same time, the use two different circuit's. The ECM really doesn't have any thing to do with the fuel gauge on this car.

How to fix 1999 jeep cherokee sport


You mean it cranks but does not start, right ?
The NoBus on the display means the cluster is not talking to the computer. That could be a wiring problem or a component problem.
Have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes ?

I have a 1998 Jeep cherokee sport. Was driving today and it died. Now there is no spark and no power to fuel pump. Changed fuel pump today and it won't run. Recently replaced oxygen sensors too


U need to check the crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump will only have power for 2 seconds I till it sees a crank signal. It' controls the asd relay which turns on your spark and fuel

Car wont start up right away


Crank or cam sensor probably as plugs bad plugs would start but miss the sensor will either give a start or no start condition and on 1 truck the crank sensor went out and it would run cold but miss like crazy when warm,I work in a chyrsler shop and have never seen that happen and even a scan tool didn't pick it up.

Wont start!


it is a possibility that the cps is bad. but also check to see if your car has a safety which will shut the car off if the oil pressure drops to low some vehicles have an automatic shutoff to save the engine. have you checked for codes the cps will throw a trouble code if it is bad, usually. check all your basics as well adequate fuel, spark etc. hope this helps some

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
