Well, your fuel gauge can be stuck at the 3/4 mark. Or you bent it while installing it, causing a wrong reading.

Take out the fuel pump and ensure when the float is at the empty position your gauge is at E. If not adjust it properly. Also make sure your connections are correct. You said you swith the wires, don't see how they only go one way unless you have the nut and screw type.

Again, I think you bent it while installing it.. Also make sure you put the pump in correctly, you could have installed it the wrong way not letting the float ..............float!

I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. it began to stall at idle and now will not start


Check audibly the fuel pump. It will run for 3 seconds when ignition is turned on, but engine not started. If it makes noise, you could check for pressue at the fuel rail. There is normally a schrader valve you can press. Tske care, fuel under pressure will come out when pump is ok.
if ok, check for eventual fault codes with scanner.
could be crank sensor.

sounds like a fuel supply problem-change the fuel filter and run some injector cleaner through it-it also could be a bad fuel pump-Denny

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Jeep Truck I just purchased and the gas gauge is not working it's on empty even when fill it up!


Check the Fuel Sending Unit in the fuel pump. Disconnect the wire to the sending unit, at the tank, and ground it to the car frame. Turn the key to on and see if the fuel gauge goes to Full. If it does the gauge and wire are good and the problem is in the sending unit. If it's still on E the gauge is bad or the wire is open.

Keep us updated.

Sometimes my gas gage works on my 1996 jeep cherokee laredo and most of the time it doesn't. I also can not roll up the back window on the passenger side. Help Please


The master switch is the most likely cause for the window problem,and the fuel gauge is most likely the fuel sending unit in the fuel tank

1996 Jeep Grand Cheroke Laredo...Ran tank low on fuel. Then after filling up would not start, while at the pump. So changed fuel filter...no start. Then changed fuel pump. Now does start and run yea! ...


Likely you did a bad thing to the tank float when working on it If so, it will need to be taken down (again) and checked. First though check that the gauge is getting power at the attachment harness (pump and power side should have a voltage pulse and good tank grounding.)

Fuel gauge always reads full and low fuel light won't work


Sounds like you have a short most likely a bad fuel sending unit located as part of the fuel pump. Most of the time you have to replace the pump because the pump and the sending unit are as one. Have you been to an Auto Parts store like Advanced Auto or Autozone? That's also a great source of ideas when you get stumped.

Good Luck. Hope this helped.
