More than likely needs a crank sensor, Try cranking with the crank sensor disconnected, you should not get the dashes in the cluster. The crank sensors take out the communication system of the vehicle

Your starter does not actually start your car. It's only job is to turn the engine so it can start. (actually replaces the crank people used to need to put into the front of the car and physically crank (turn) the engine...hence the term "cranking")
The two most common causes of the problem you are having is either the crank position sensor or fuel pump has failed. Easy way to determine if the pump is bad is to listen to the gas tank when you turn the key to the "on" position...You should be able to hear it. CPS needs to be checked with a digital ohmmeter Best instructions for electrical testing can be found in chilton manuals available in most large parts stores. Haynes is somewhat useful but a bit too basic for any real electrical diagnosis. All sensors are expensive (min of $90 each) so testing is important so you don't end up throwing $ at it with no results.
Need answers to anything you find just ask!!.

1998 Jeep Cherokee 2.5td Ltd: intermittent cranking problem.


It sounds like you need to get the starter motor either repaired or replaced. Due to constant trying to start the car, it maybe that the battery is discharged a bit, causing the engine not to respond as usual, so you have to give more throttle. First , get the starter sorted and charge the battery, then you will see how it goes . Hope this helps

90 jeep starting problem


Check the crank position sensor. I had the same problem in a 1989 cherokee 4.0, and the solution was simply to acomodate the sensor wiring. No replace was necesary

I have an 89 Jeep Cherokee and it will crank over but not start


O2 sensor will not do that. Check the basics...do you have fuel...Do you have spark? I would make a bet on it either being a crank position sensor or fuel filter. Next good guess is the ignition coil. Check these items (in order) and see what you find. Test specs are found in any manual. (if you need specifics I can give them to you. You will need a decent volt/ohm meter to test.

Jeeps have a part called the crank sensor, when working properly it senses the electrical feild produced by flywheel. This crank sensor which is located on top of the tranny bell housing has been known to go bad. When this crank sensor goes bad the CPU does not get a crank reference and the computer will not fire the injectors. This crank sensor will fail under high temps and if it is old will fail also when cold.
You have to find out if the injectors are getting a pulse when the car does'nt start.
