1994 Jeep Cherokee ignition problem

I have been having trouble with this jeep for some time now. It will usually crank and run fine for 30-45 minutes and then without warning it shuts off, doesnt sputter or act like it is starving for fuel it just shuts off. Also if you drive it for 30 minutes or so and turn it off it will not crank again for about an hour or two. This leads me to believe it is an ignition problem and that something is getting mixed up after the engine gets hot. I think it is ignition since when it does die it is very sudden, not with spitting or sputtering like it is out of fuel, so I immagine it is probably not getting any fire for some reason. This is a 4.0 liter engine. Any suggestions?

Might check the crank sensor. it is located on the transmission bellhousing on top just off to the drivers side. if the pcm loses this signal the vehicle will die immediately and not restart until it sees the signal again

Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

My 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.2L is very difficult to start if it has not been run in the previous 6 hours. Replaced ignition coil but didn't solve the problem. After sitting overnight it


Low fuel pressure.
You need to check the fuel pressure on the first crank and watch it as it is running.
Requires a special gauge.
If it were just a starting problem I would say it could be a pump relay, but not if it runs rough for 5 min.
Might be a dirty filter or problem in the tank.

I have a 1994 Jeep Grande Cherokee, and it is difficult or will not start. When tested on the diagnostic computer, at times it shows as the jeeps computer is not working at all (is receiving no power),...


I believe your ecu is in need of repair. You have described the 'No Check Engine Light' problem exactly. If you look at your dash in the am, before you try cranking and it won't start, there is no check engine light when the ignition is turned on. The light does eventually come on, after a few minutes of leaving the ignition on, then the relays will click on and the jeep will start. Either have your ecu repaired or replaced.

You changed the ignition coil from distributor right?
secondly make sure distributor is not internally shattered (which is a common problem). Normally the current comes from Crank sensor or cam shaft sensor !

94 Jeep Cherokee won't start


I believe the green wire is a pulse from the distributor and its a ground signal. I could be wrong since is been a while since i left the jeep dealer...I would take the coil out (2 bolts on most) and take it to autozone. They can test it in minutes for free. Either that or the ignition module but more common is coil.
