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.

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?

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.

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.

Check engine light, vapor canister, have any idea


I would start with the gas cap replacement and see if the issue resolves itself. If you do have a problem with the EVAP (canister) system, it may require tools the average person does not have to help diagnose and correct/repair.

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.
