Try to start run for a second if you press the gas it will stay on until you get off the gas


Sounds like a leaky injector, bad idle ,hard to start when warm, bad gas mileage. Or the temp sensor both of them that won't let it run rjght when its cold

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.
