It would seem that if the sensor has been replaced with a known good sensor then the problem is probably the wiring from the sensor to the computer, or from the sensor to the battery, If you go to your local library they have manuals that may suggest how to test if the sensor is actually working.

My 96 jeep cherokee will crank but will not turn over?


????.. Do you mean it will turn over but NOT crank and run?
Do you have at least a 1/4 tank of gas..??
When/how did this start... all of a sudden,, started doing it occasionally?.. Have you had anyone (mechanic) look at it yet? Megan, there is not a way to diagnose your problem without A LOT more information.

How to disconnect anti-theft module 1996 grand jeep cherokee 5.2litre v8


so all 3 FOBs are dead? is that it??????
so the which part of the system is failing
the ASD relay cuts starts, 7 ways, one is security. called VTSS.

i guess the security light is telling you, that it is not happy? in the dash cluster, is that it?
94 or 96?
so it , flashes ext. lamps, honks horn, and wont start.
page 8q-1 FSM.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/how-disable-your-alarm-your-zj-483020/

endless post. on topic. read it, try it.

better yet, diagnose it.
scan the PCM to find out why the ASD relay drops out
does it? that is the first test in all, no starter.

if the battery is discharged, bad things happen as the security logic
goes nuts. (the chips dont yet run on "free energy" )

I recently had my 96 jeep into a shop becasue of a hard start. Thinking it may be battery or starter. Both of those passed tests just fine and ait actually started great for a week. Today it barely started...


Does your check engine light illuminate on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, right before cranking? If it does not light up, at those times when it's hard to start, then the main ecu might be in need of repair.

Jeep overheated while sitting still/driving slow. low engine coolant light keeps coming on, but radiator is full and so is overflow tank. sitting at stop lights the rpm's drop down to 400. check engine...


In regards to the 99-04 grand cherokees with the 4.7L (this could apply to the 4.0 as well but I'm not positive), It's a common issue that the relay on the fan assembly goes out. The fan will still run but will not kick over to the higher speed when the engine reaches a certain temperature (I think i remember it being operating temperature, 210 F).
It can be difficult to diagnose and is generally expensive to diagnose through a shop... I would do some research on replacing the radiator fan relay.

Jeep grand cherokee limited '96: check engine


If a warning light is on, there's a trouble code stored in the computer. There are well over 800-1,000 possible trouble codes in the average late model vehicle, so asking us to guess what's causing your problem without knowing the code is a complete waste of time. Get the code read. Post it here. THEN we can help

My check engine light activated on my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo - what does it mean?


All modern cars have this generic info light. You have several options:
1) Free (sort of) most oil change places can check it.
2) Buy your own OBDII scanner, about $100 bucks, works for all '96 and newer cars. Gives peace of mind that YOU know what is wrong even if you can't fix it.
3) Take to mechanic and hope they are honest and don't take you to cleaners.

Generally this light is tied to the emissions systems. Your car won't pass a smog check but it may run just fine. If you are capable check all your fluids especially the oil. Good luck.
