My jeep won't start right away ?

I have 94 jeep Grand Cherokee, when i try to start it I have to crank for or five times. Then leave ign on service light comes on then relays click to injectors serv eng light comes on then it will fire up and run fine. If I turn on will start right up if I wait a few mins it won't. My buddy says it's a crank censor on bell housing which is bad . If I draw battery dead and get a jump it fires right up too ? I checked for spark and it doesn't have one right away either replaced coil first not problem !!! Help going insane!!!! Ed.....

Check body and dash grounds. Pressure test injector rail. You may have either a partially plugged fuel filter or low capacity pump.

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee will start fine after it sits overnight or for a hour or so but won t start if i go to the store and get in it five minutes later. After 1 hour it cranks right up


Sounds like a fuel mixture issue, being a 2003 must be EFI, could be faulty mass air flow sensor, fuel mixtures being to rich when engine is at operating temp.

Hard to start jeep 1994 grand cherokee


If the jeep just cranks but doesn't start right away, you might have what is known as the 'delayed start check engine light problem'. Make sure the check engine light comes on, in the dash, before cranking. If the check engine light does not come on right away, then you do have the delayed start problem and the jeep ecu needs to be repaired.

94 grand cherokee cutsoff going down the road then won't start until it sets for a while


When it won't start someone will need to find out if you are dealing with a no-spark or no-fuel problem to proceed.
If the check engine light is on you should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.

I have a 97 jeep grand Cherokee, when it has sat for over an hour it takes 8-10 seconds of the starter running before it starts. If turned off after running, and started within a few minutes no problem,...


Fuel pump. The valve in the pump that stops the fuel from draining back into the tank is not working so you crank and crank until the fuel gets up front. Turn the key on but not to start for 5 seconds then off do it five times and then try to start it should start right up

2000 grand cherokee just dies going down the road. no warning no fault codes.what are the possible causes


no stumbling first? sounds ignition related check all the plug ins on ign system I assume it always starts right back up ok? sounds like either crank or cam sensor,if I had to guess it would be crank first but next time it dies try restarting right away without shutting key off first and let the engine crank for about 30-40 sec if it don;t start it should set a dtc which will tell you either crank or cam sensor but it will start happening more often until one day it just wont restart again.

Changed battery in 1994 jeep cherokee now engine won't start. Tried resetting alarm by unlocking drivers door and hatch door. Still not starting


Do you know how to check codes on your Jeep? Sometimes the crank position sensor goes out but the Jeep will still run until there is an interruption in power to the ECU. I had a 94 Cherokee do the exact same thing. Turn your key in the following pattern: off-on-off-on-off-on. Leave it on and look at the engine light - it will blink out 2 digit codes. If I remember right code 11 is for the crank sensor...
