You have an ABS Braking System Malfunction

Just sillly for a professional to say there is nothing
wrong

Your car is not safe to use at all

Need a different repair shop & make sure they
underdstand all the details of the issue & they
write down what you tell them

I never recommend a dealer, but in your area that
may be an option. Don't take it back until they drive
100 miles with no issues

I will be driving down the road and my jeep will just die on me and I can't get it started again. I wait about an hour and it will suddenly start.Happens about 2-3 times a week and I can't figure out what...


Most often that is a symptom of a fuel pump beginning to fail. As it runs, it begins to overheat and bind. After it cools down, it frees itself up and then works again. However, the same problem can also be caused by a crank position sensor going bad.
Next time it happens, turn the key on while someone listens to hear if the pump (inside the tank) is running. If not, likely that's what is failing.
Crank sensor can be tested with a digital ohmmeter, but many times it will not show up as bad until it completely fails.

This is most likely an ignition module located inside the distributor that is failing intermittently, this truck should be brought to a Auto Zone to check for trouble codes that are stored, they do the code check for free and this will help narrow down the problem so you won't be changing parts that are not bad.

Engine rmps will not back down


If this happened all of a sudden, It sounds like a Vacuum leak. I would inspect the vacuum hoses for brakes or cracks. Is the Rpm too high to test drive and see how the vehicle is running?

Starting fine, driving fine, but dies while going down the road


Next time disconnect the negative and not the positive if it ever happens again. This happened due to the PCM needing to be reset.
