Sounds like fuel pump quit, do a fuel pressure test to make sure. Thats the way they act when there going to quit all together. most likely after you fill up the tank with gas.

My jeep grand cherokee 96 v8 will start just for a few seconds and shut down and the headlights flash on and off after it die


I would call a dealer because usually when there's flashing lights involved it's a code. If it runs for a few seconds then dies it could be a plugged fuel pump or plugged line. The pump is able to pull enough fuel to let it run for a short time but then runs out. Hope it helps.

Very rough idle on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition V8


If you haven't changed the plugs or had the fuel system cleaned, now would be a good time to do it. The number 1 culprit for rough idles is dirty injectors or plugs. You can try an injector cleaner in a can (or bottle) for under $10 and see if it helps, and then work from there. If there isn't any improvement then if you are able to, check the plugs for any gunky buildup and if you find a bad plug, make sure you replace them all (or have them replaced) at the same time.
