First you have to check fuel pressure (durty fuel filter) and spark plugs/wires. If it wont help it can be idleling unit problems (air control valve, idle speed control actuator, idle stop solenoid), faulty mass air flow sensor or faulty throttle position sensor. But most probably it is first two.
Good Luck

Changed alternator and disconnected battery in the process. security system will not let me start the car


I don't think 1995 Grand cherokee has an immobilizer. Aftermarket security. Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas? Sounds like you need to perform the idle relearn procedure.

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

I had the same problem with my 96 Dodge Ram, it would crank up but if you let off the gas it would die. It needs a map sensor!!

Will not stay started unless foot on gas


i would put some STP- gas treatment with fuel injector cleaner in it may sure you have at less a half tank of gas and add a little more after putting the STP in drive the car where you can drive around 55mph or more if car gets better replace the fuel filter if you have a Shell near you use that they have a good cleaner in they gas Merry Christmas & Happy New Year as always wish you the best of luck Michigan Man

No spark/wont start


i have a 98 and it has a distributor but it could be a fuel issue more than a spark if you have a fuel pressure gauge and check it.should be above 30 psi to me it sounds like a fuel pump thats bad
