Check your fuel pump relay underneath the hood in your fuse panel box and also check your fuse to your fuel pump it may not be making good contact . so good luck

I had this same problem thought it was my coil again but checked and it had spark. could not figure it out. I took it to a mechanic and it was the coil. He said it had spark but not enough spark.

After a bump it dies and now it wont turn on gas meter not working and no spark it just cranks on my jeep grand cherokee 1996


There should be a reset for the fuel tank. It is a safety switch that they have added to stop fires from rearend collisions. Not sure where it is on your vehicle. Look in owners manual or call dealership.

Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

What is causing my 1986 jeep grand wagoneer engine to stall while driving? I cannot restart it but there is power. It will turn over but not start and there is gas in it. The jeep just went "poof" and died...


ok, its and old jeep, cranks but will not start.

carb fueled right? crank it wide open throttle to clean the flood
and block open the choke, if CARB has auto choke, if manual choke make sure its open. (push in knob... called choke)
fuses first. test them.
first check for spark in all cylinders.
if you have spark on all , then its flooded.
if no spark on one try a new spark plug and wire.
if all spark is dead , do the tuneup. now. all spark parts.
if spark is dead, check it at the coil, ? good there? or not.
that is a start.
if the carb is bad, we cant cover rebuilding it here.

stalls while driving has over 50 causes.
but bad spark or flooding tops list. (assumes engine is ok)

Engine dies numerous times a day.


Have you thought about it possibly being the engine that has something wrong with it? Have you checked the cylinders?

Engine turns over but won't start 2001 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 6cyl


Start with the control module,I think it is located under coil on this model,You have checked the rotor to see if it is turning haven`t you?If it is not you may need a timing chain.

Car shut off and wont fully start


sounds like you have some bad coil packs, something is not allowing spark, what kind of ignition sys do you have?
Distributer or coils?
either way you have to have spark, if its a dist, pull the cap and see what kind of shape it is in, no corrosion, water, oil or anything should be there, if it looks good, have someone turn the motor over to make sure the rotor is spinning, if not, your cam is not driving it, so thats a broken shaft or timing chain
coil packs, start testing the pack for power, if no power keep going back withe the wires to the relays, sometimes they get hot and have a intermitten problem at first then they just go bad, they are in teh fuse box and should be labled
