Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

'97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd 4.0 liter; Will start but cuts off.

My jeep was running fine; now when I start it, it won't stay running. I have replaced the fuel pump, distributor cap, rottor button, crank sensor, spark plugs and wires. It will run and cut off while you are driving and it may start back up.

    not a code for the computer, but a code stored in the computer, there are over 100 different fault codes, thought u might have one of these.

Check your throtle postition sensor. It monitors what postion the throtle is at and sends that info to the ecm. It will go bad and cause that problem.

The jeep dies while driving it, then won't start. if it sets for awhile, it will start back up and run as if nothing happened.


I had the same problems with my 95 Jeep GC Ltd. I had the crank shaft position sensor replaced (just under $300) and now it runs fine.

The most likely cause of something like this in a Chrysler vehicle is a faulty Body Control Module (BCM.) I believe on the Grand Cherokee, it's located under the driver-side instrument panel. It will likely have to be replaced, but you may want to contact the dealer to see if re-programming the BCM might help it. These modules aren't cheap, unfortunately!

I hope this helps! :)
