1986 Jeep Cherokee Laredo, won't start, not getting fuel
My Cherokee just started acting up and will not start sometimes. I looked in the Throttle Body and am not getting any fuel, but if I unhook the gas line and turn on the ignition, I get gas there. Could it be the fuel pump or some sensor?, also the fuel pump was not shutting off so I put a switch in the wire to solve that proble. please help with ANY suggetions that I can try. Thank you

Electronic throttle control (ETC) is an automobile technology which severs the mechanical link between the accelerator pedal and the throttle. A Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is used to control traction control, fuel injections, etc.
Technically if the engine has compression, is getting spark at the right time and fuel, it should start. Have you checked the spark plugs to see if they are fuel or oil fouled ? Are you getting spark at the plugs or at the coil ? Have you tried using carb cleaner or starting fluid in the throttle body ?? Have you checked fuel pressure to see if you are getting enough fuel to the injectors ?
You might not believe this, but check your battery. Some of these vehicles have cut-outs when the battery level goes below a preset amount.
I work on Ford brands and on them, a low battery level will even disconnect the Alternator circuit and mess with the starter. Some even act up when the battery slightly dips below 12 volts.
Your antitheft can make your starter cut out. And If you think about it, all of the measurements to make the engine run are based on feedback of voltage and amperage. This is how the engine management system adjusts. If your prime source of power is low, then all of the following electrical readings will be low. Some may be too low to work.
Your fuelpump will hold pressure in a closed system for hours. The fuel pressure regulator will command the fuelpump to stop working if the fuel pressure is at maximum. Without responses from the other components and after satisfactory pressure, the fuelpump will turn off.
Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body. if engine starts then problem is in fuel system...otherwise likely in ignition. You need to do a code test and get some direction to where to look from that. common failure in ign system is crank sensor. but do not replace anything without verifying by testing or repair can get expensive.
I think you must be having an ignition switch issue here. You might need to see an electrician for this as it might be a little bit complicated to test and instructions over the net could be confusing and may lead to other damage.
