Check all the connections. The battery clamps should be tight. Wires on the alternator should all be tight. Have you watched your battery charge indicator when the Jeep died to see if it was falling below 13 volts?

so all 3 FOBs are dead? is that it??????
so the which part of the system is failing
the ASD relay cuts starts, 7 ways, one is security. called VTSS.

i guess the security light is telling you, that it is not happy? in the dash cluster, is that it?
94 or 96?
so it , flashes ext. lamps, honks horn, and wont start.
page 8q-1 FSM.

endless post. on topic. read it, try it.

better yet, diagnose it.
scan the PCM to find out why the ASD relay drops out
does it? that is the first test in all, no starter.

if the battery is discharged, bad things happen as the security logic
goes nuts. (the chips dont yet run on "free energy" )

Lost all electrical power three times got it bach twice


Seems like a main power lead has corroded and is breaking contact.Trace the main power lead from the battery and clean up all downstream connections. This applies to ground wire as well. After sitting for a long time moisture can get into connections and cause this. Most times daily driving dries this out before it can give problems such as you outlined. If you try to start it in the dark, sometimes you can see some sparks at the affected connection!

All wheel drive v8 issues 96 Jeep Grnd Cherokee Ltd


Any all wheel drive will give less fuel miles.(compared to ones you engage as needed) The Chrysler v8 is a time proven engine, pretty much a copycat of a chevy with some changes to make it their own. Overall, I haven't heard any really bad stuff about them. If you look at the problems on this site, there seem to be fewer jeep probs than all other vehicles. (even though some problems are really weird!!!)
What you really need to see is the vehicles history to make sure it's been maintained and has not been back to a shop for the same thing over and over.
Good luck!

Info panel by gear shifter is not working anymore 96 grand cherok


the info center was not working in my 96 jeep when i got it. it serves no major purpose other than a clock and to let you know when your doors are open. i replaced mine the part itself can be found at junkyards fairly cheap. i paid $65 for mine. and now i wish i had left it alone. constant annoyances and chimes.
