Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Battery went dead charged bettery it starts then shuts off checked all fuses
Might be time for new battery, they only last so long, usually 5 yrs is listed and that's if it's a good one to start with..more pricey. We just had the same thing happen to us. Turned out the alternator was junk, which wouldn't hold the charge from the battery and the battery was a 6yr battery, but we got 8 yrs out of it. Ended up replacing both alternator and battery in Advanced Auto's parking lot, during snow storm in NH!! They let us use their tools to replace both right there. They have tools and they checked both, no cost.

SOURCE: stalling during stop
check the alternator to see what it is pumping out and also check the spark. Also check the fuel pump as it sounds like it isn't cranking out enough gas which may because of low battery. If you have another battery that you can try in the jeep, that would be great and see if you continue to have the same problems. If it is the alternator, after a while the battery will be down in power. Right now I would bet the battery or alternator is bad so have a look and tell me what you find. You will have to test the power output of the alternator

It is normal for the fan to run when engine is off. Engine temps actually rise when the engine is shut off, the heat will rise through the engine compartment. So a Coolant temp sensor controls when the fan shuts on and off, obviously based on the temps of the anti-freeze. The fans are a high draw item, but It would take much longer than an hour breakfast for the battery to run dead. I would check out the battery and charging system first. Is the CEL on? Let me know and we will trouble shoot from there. Thank you for using fixya.com

Check block ground at end of battery cable. Make sure it's clean on the contact surfaces. do same with body ground. Check voltage at the starter. Should be 12v at large cable, 12v at small cable with key turned to start. sorry for the comment before but it was too hard to let it pass! Check back and tell me what you find after testing!

Try replacing Co2 sensor, most people don't realized that unit need replacing every 50-75k miles also. if that does not work, take it to the dealer and have them plug it into the computer, that will allow for them to narrow it down. with service engine light on, it will effect some of your gas mileage and the performances. The dealer charge somewhere around 50 bucks to diagnose using their computer, however 50 bucks will appilied toward the repair bill if they do the work.
