Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

4 Answers

Car won't restart on an infrequent basis after driven for a while

When you turn the key, all the warning lights come and that is it. Battery, alternator, cables and starter have all been tested by Jeep dealer and are fine. Dealer could not duplicate problem. If you leave the car for one - two hours (cooling down), it will start up.

I have a '96 that was cutting out on the hi-way after about 10 miles or so. I went out and bought a crankshaft position sensor (CKS) at NAPA for about 60 bucks. She's running like her old self. It's located on the top/front/left side of the tranny. A little tough to reach, but doable. Easier if you have access to a lift. The best American made car I've ever owned. And I was scared to death in '97 when my wife told me she had bought a Chrysler product! We had a 2000 that my son now drives and I just bought her an '03 Grand and she is loving it. I swear by them, now. And I really like the V-8, though still believe their biggest mistake was discontinuing the I-6. vinsimmons@aol.com

Hi. i have a 96 cherokee and mine would cut off and not start after running for a while. but if you let it sit for a while, it would start back up. i changed the distributor and have not had that problem since, and that was three years ago. hope it helps.

Car won't start. It is dead except for the lights going on. One - Two hours later, you turn the key and the engine starts.

I would go to the positive terminal on the battery anjd check for black hard build up on the post and inside the terminal. This is lead sulphate and cause a high resistance to any high current flow. Clean both with sand paper until shiny and refit and tension properly. Do the negative also as it will have build up but to a lesser degree. If the battery lead runs through a connection box Check for tight connections there also. As to towing most towers have a wheel rack that fits under the tyres and lifts them clear of the road so it can be taken to to a shop.

2001 Chev Malibu. Turn key on to start car, won't start. No warning lights on no lights on gauge panel. Radio works, dome light work.


check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

The battery ran out of power because the alternator is not charging it.
Have the alternator output tested and take a look at the fuses.

Have trouble starting car from time to time


MAYBE YOUR FUEL LINE AND FUEL FILTER, SOUNDS LIKE THE GASOLINE WON’T GO THROUGH, YOU CAN START THE CAR, PUT IT INTO PARK AND PUSH THE GAS PADAL SEVERAL TIMES, SOMETIMES PUSH THE DIRT OUT, OTHERWISE PROBABLY YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER. TRY IT.
