5 volts is correct. Those sensors work off of a 5 volt reference signal.

    The voltage signal come from the ECU or ECM

Time to meter voltage. Start with the 12V circuit. Are you getting voltage at the coil. Does the voltage fluctuate when the engine cranks? If yes to both check the high voltage circuit. Start with the coil then the distributor then each plug. You should be able to find where the spark is failing.

The power is on and off so starting is hard


Need to try the crank shaft position senor. It work off the turning of the crank. It the sensor goes bad then the engine has no idea what position the crank is in, so therefore you won't get it to start. I had to replace a few of these on Jeeps , this is a big problem for Jeeps.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee No Start


I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

1996 jeep grand chrokee turns over will not start, replaced cam shaft censor and ECM, and coil. distibuter cap looks bad has some white dust inside and contacts burnt. could it be that?


If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.

Not cranking


There is a relay in the power distribution box near the battery. Check that. Also, check the block connections on battery leads for clean secure connection. Small wire on starter should have 12v there when cranking (or key turned to start. If power is there and no crank, starter is bad. Last resort, check ignition switch for power in/out.(rare but they do go bad)

1996 jeep cherokee 4.0 litre petrol turns over but not start


the dist and injectors work on a 12 volt feed.....the 5 volt feed comes from the powertrain control module but it is possible that one of the sensors are grounding it out. until it acts up again it will be hard to locate. are you sure the 5 volt feed wasnt there. it may just be a bad crank sensor or dist pickup plate causing the no start
