1997 Jeep Cherokee won't start

1997 Jeep Cherokee will turn over but won't start. Replaced the fuel pump and still it's doing the same thing. If i pump the gas while it's trying to start... nothing. If i press the gass all the way down it trys to start as i let go but only for a second and still won't start. The check engine light goes on and off intermittenly. Is there anyway of reading the codes without taking it a shop? and what else could it be?

There is a way. By counting the blinking of the checkengine lights. But that was before 1996. Since the OBII they do it with a scanner. It's free to do in most Auto Parts stores.Like Autozone, Checker Auto , kragen's , etc. You just ask. Some mechanics will do it for a small fee. If the car can't be taken to a store. it seems like a sensor. The Crankshaft position sensor or the camshft position sensor. Because it wants to start. Or it could be the fuel pressure regulator.

I have a 1998 Jeep cherokee sport. Was driving today and it died. Now there is no spark and no power to fuel pump. Changed fuel pump today and it won't run. Recently replaced oxygen sensors too


U need to check the crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump will only have power for 2 seconds I till it sees a crank signal. It' controls the asd relay which turns on your spark and fuel

My 89 jeep cherokee won't. Start it will turn over


what motor? is the coil producing spark?? If so, check the fuel pressure, if the fuel pressure is low drop the tank, repace the pump and also replace the filter (located on the frame forward of the tank). If the coil is not producing spark, check for shorts or opens in the circuits as well as the IGN fuses. If there is NO fuel pressure at all check the fuel pump fuses and make sure the fuel pump is plugged in and there are no opens in the circuit

My 1998 jeep cheorkee engine turns but won't crank, could it be the computer or what?


it's highly unlikely, there are only two things that can make this happen, not getting fuel (fuel pump failure, fuel pump regulator) or not getting ignition (bad coils, ignition module failure, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor)
