    This seems to be a VERY simliar circumstance to my 2004 GC but I have not had to jump it thus far. I have noticed that pushing the accelerator helps once I get some response but normally at first, I get NOTHING, by that, I mean, no clicking from the ignitiion or cranking at all. My problem seems to be an all or nothing start issue.

I have problem in my jeep grand cherokee when iam start the engine (mycar) is ok started bot when engine start 10 mins after that the engine offline and i dont know the problem please help me!!!


sounds like maybe the immobilizer is activating. try using the key to lock and then unlock the driver's door, resetting the alarm system. the lights should be flashing when this happens but you never know. its a shot in the dark.

Good luck

2001 jeep grand cherokee,pulled dash out to change blender doors, put it back together, now shows gas gauge empty, and lights up, and key with circle cross on, won't start.


You will need to remove the cluster and make sure you plugged in all the connector to the cluster, the antitheft system runs throught the cluster also and you said fuel gauge doesnt work so i would have to say theres a bad connection or you forgot to plug a connector in. good day.

I pulled my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee out of the garage to re-charge the air conditioning. I let it idle and attached an R34 cylinder. As it started to draw R34, it stalled. I immediately tried to re-start...


Sounds electrical,jeeps are known for grounding issue's and happening while charging a/c is just a coincidense,but just in case remove the plug from the a/c compressor just in case it is locked up and check the fuses under the hood as well as under the dash .

2004 jeep grand cherokee will not start, dash light blink , gauges move back and forth. Battery seem to be ok.


It takes very little voltage and amperage to operate dash gauges. You cannot rely on "seems" when it comes to the battery. A good battery should have standing voltage of at least 12v and be able to "snap back" from a fifteen second 200 amp load. Under load, the voltage should not drop lower than 9.5 volts. Have the battery charged and load tested before going anywhere else with this. then make sure connections are clean and tight. After you get it started, if battery was good, check starter draw and charging system operation. If it does not start, check power flow from key through neutral safety switch and starter relay to starter.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Heater will not turn off


It could also be the rheostat that controls it. it's on the fan plenum under the dash. inserts into the plastic plenun.
