Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 2002 JGC will suddenly shut off while i'm driving.

My console lights & radio will remain on but the car has stopped several times a day. I can usually just restart the car immediately but yesterday it took several tries just to get it started.

First place I'd go with this is to check any codes in the computer. Most "supermarket" type parts houses will check with a code reader for free. Pay attention especially to any code indicating a problem with the crank sensor (the most frequent part that causes the kind of problem you posted)
Good luck

Just purchased a 2002 Nissan Sentra and 3-5 days later the car began shutting off when stopped on several occasions and starting back up. Lastly the car shut off while in park and would not start up again...


Next time it does it. try hitting the fuel tank. a couple times if necessary. if it starts back then your fuel pump is dieing. some times when the pump heats up they will stop working, only to come on latter. let me know

Lost all electrical power while driving?


Sounds like a poor connection from either the positive or ground from the battery. Check connections at the battery, follow the cables to see if any other connections are loose.

Car dies intermittently


THIS ONE IS EASY. CHECK YOUR BATTERY TERMINALS AND CABLES THAT THEY ARE TIGHT. IF THEY ARE, YOUR BATTERY MAY NEED CHARGING OR YOUR ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING YOUR SYSTEM THAT WELL. I WOULDNT DRIVE LONG DISTANCES UNLESS I HAD THAT CHECKED.

Radio stays on.


It would be best to pull the radio fuse leaving it out for several minutes then replace it. tis may well fix the problem but if it doesn't you can remove the fuse agin knowing it will not drain the battery over night

My 2002 Honda Civic starts - but slowly and the lights flicker


Well it absolutely sounds like an alternator issue. But i noticed you said "in the rain" correct? See this is where it gets tricky for most folks. But ill tell ya how to resolve this, if you arent having problems now things are gonna be just fine. I mean if you got up the next morning and th ecar did normal, then evidentally an electrical component had some moisture in it but has dried out now,so if it was the alternator the problem would only worsen, and within a few days your battery would fail. So I think you will be just fine
