Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 4.7 V8

ENGINE DIES WHILE DRIVING. GAUGES FALL OFF AND I'M FORCED TO PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. AFTER SHUTTING DOWN THE ENGINE AND WAITING FOR A FEW SECONDS THE ENGINE WILL RESTART. THE ENGINE LITE WILL COME ON AND REMAIN ON UNTILL I SHUT THE ENGINE OFF. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IT COULD BE THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR. WHERE IS IT AND HOW DO I FIX IT? CAN YOU SHOW ME A PICTURE?

The crank sensor is in the lower passenger side of the block....a cam sensor can also cause this...it would be wise to have someone pull the codes from the pcm...it could save you a lot of money and headache....most parts stores do it for free

My jeep grand Cherokee will shut off and all the gauge on dashboard turn on


It could be the O2 sensor and the camshaft sensor. I have the same Jeep and having the same issues. Auto Parts stores have the sensor, just need to find a good mechanic that wont over charge you. When you do, ask then to run the codes to make sure.

1997 jeep grand cherokee check gauges light comes on when the vehicle is cold about a mile down the road, the charge gauge to be precise. After the car is pulled over, the engine is shutdown and resta


there would have been enough induced voltage flying back through the electrical system to keep the motor running.This is not always a good test.A little bit more explanation would be helpful.Does that check gauge remain on or off while driving normally?When it goes off or on does it do it spasmodically or does it do it until you restart the engine?Regards

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Will die going down the road. Sometimes it starts back up without me touching the key.other times I have to wait a few minutes before it will crank again.Any suggestions? Thank...


I've got to be reading this incorrectly...You are driving, the engine turns off...you pull off the road? And then without touching the key the engine re-starts, but you haven't touched the key? Or, sometimes you need to sit there for a few minutes and then turn the key to start it?
