2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trouble Starting

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee is having trouble starting, this started about 2 months ago and I thought it was because it was out of gas, and when I filled it up it seemed to work fine for the last 2 months. Then last week I went to lunch and when I came out my car wouldn't start unless you gave it some gas then it would "catch" and stay on. I quickly went to the gas station and filled it up, I had 1/4 tank left, and it was working just fine. Then, this morning I tried to start it and it wouldn't crank over, gave it some gas and it started right up. After I get it started each time it works like normal. I have a 1/2 tank of gas right now. When I got to work and used my keyless remote I notice my car horn was not loud at all-it worked but it was definately muted. Anyone that can help, I really could use some sound advice.

    You gave a really long story, but it is missing essential "mechanical clues" necessary to even make a good guess. However, I would have the battery and charging system tested before doing anything else...Next, have a code check done to see if any "trouble codes" are stored in the computer... This may help give some direction to where the problem may be.

If the battery is weak,it does not have the rpm needed for the computer to start the vehicle.
if your immobilizer is kicking in,it will not start.
get the electrical checked out.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Power Loss


a bad cam sensor will cause vehicle to shut off while driving, and cause a hard time starting. but this usually sets a trouble code p0340. scan vehicle to see if any codes come up. after it is fixed, erase codes with a obd2 scanner. if you do not have one, you can go to any auto parts store and they will erase codes for free.

2004 jeep grand cherokee. CO2 sensor code, car will not start.


O2 sensors play no role in the startup of a vehicle, they do not contribute until after the vehicle has warmed up and reached "closed loop" status which is usually at least 150 degrees coolant temp

96 Jeep Cherokee Sport Hard Starting


The Engine coolant temp sensor would ABSOLUTELY cause a hard start, but don't guess get the codes check again at Auto_Zone to make sure. Another cause of that kind of hard start is a dirty throttle body/ intake manifold. Use INTAKE cleaner and a rag clean the intake esp[eciall in the throttle body area. Good Luck
