I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, an automatic, with approximately 100,000 miles on it. In the last 2 weeks it has started hesitating, misfiring, and stalling at low speeds like around 30 mph or slower....


Throttle position sensor is not the only sensor or component involved in Idle, or full speed driving. Remember that on a fuel injected engine AIR is everything. Unless the computer can't send the proper signals to the injectors, fuel ( aside from a bad fuel pump ) is not going to be an issue. Make sure that the other sensors on the throttle body are working fine. Take a look at the throttle body yourself. It's not a hard procedure. Just look at it and run the engine. Is running correctly at all temperatures? As far as the directional signal, you have to trouble shoot that one, but it may not be difficult to find the issue. Check for a loose bulb.

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo turns off suddenly when stopped, and sometimes kicks when running. I'm wondering if it has to do with the fuel filter.


On my dodge truck, it was the throttle position sensor that went bad. It is located on the side of the throttle body. $50 for a new one, or $100 to have a shop do it.

The cruise on my 2006 jeep gr. Cherokee started acting up. It was set and then it started accelerating for no reason. I reset it and was fine. It did the same thing later that day but now it cant be set....


The problem is with the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). It made be malfunctioning or may just need to be reset (disconnecting and reconnecting the battery). If it ends up being a bad PCM then bring it to the dealership and the PCM is covered under warranty for 8 years 80,000 miles.

Hope this helps.
