Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
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.
