Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I just bought a 96 grand cherokee fully loaded 318 v8 runs great but while driving let of gas to stop and lost all power twice I went to start it starter turned for a second and lost all power again. this time for good I have a new battery and drive belt and good terminals the car set for a year not running gave it a tune up please help need car
Seems like a main power lead has corroded and is breaking contact.Trace the main power lead from the battery and clean up all downstream connections. This applies to ground wire as well. After sitting for a long time moisture can get into connections and cause this. Most times daily driving dries this out before it can give problems such as you outlined. If you try to start it in the dark, sometimes you can see some sparks at the affected connection!
