Which engine of the many, ??????
no start but cranks ROBUSTLY right?
turns over means zero, the starter motor and engine both can TURN OVER thus , no meaning, What counts is the crank shaft spins.
called Cranking.

1: check all fuses on both boxes.
2: Is dash I/P cluster CEL lamp glowing keyon?
3: I then connect my scan tool and crank for 5 seconds, not 4 , but 5.
3A: got DTC's (errror) for CMP , CKP or spark or dead RPM?
thats 4 checks,, got them, ? yes, BINGO.
the ECU will not INJECT fuel of those are bad. ever.
there are exceptions, but those guys get lawsuits....
4: above is ok , i check spark (some do this first. sure thats makes sense , always)
5: ok I got spark on all cylinder, NO , fix that or do step 3 again.
6: i try test fuel, I spray it in and BAM it runs for 3sec, and dies.
if it dont run, are those 100k miles spark plugs long dead???? ever do tuneups, ever?
if runs 3 sec, and sound great. then you lost fueling.
i check for flooding only if spark is good.
if you get here, the story can go long play, as fueling is complex.
( no injections, leaking , clogged, ECU inputs all wrong, fuel pump dead or weak, FPreg fubar. long..... ask.)

SOURCE: 1995 jeep grand cherokee wont start

it most definately is the crank shaft sensor. same exact prob i had. it costs about 60 bucks and 3 minutes to replace yourself. one bolt holds it into the transmission bell housing and one connector wire. very simple fix. call off the wrecker. just have plenty of ratchet extensions available i had to go in from behind the transfer case to reach the bolt but it was still pretty simple to install.

My 1995 grand cherokee takes a lot to start. turns over fine, but won't fire. checked fuel rail, no pressure. after trying 15 times or so, it will start and run just fine. starts right back up unl


Your Jeep has what's known as the delayed start, no check engine light problem. The Jeep will not start until the check engine light comes on, on the dashboard. Next time it cranks but will not start, look at the dashboard to see if the check engine light is illuminated. If it's not lit up, then your Jeep does have that problem and your Jeep ecu is in need of repair or replacement. There are components inside the ecu that are going bad and will continue to get worse, eventually leading to a permanent no start condition. There are ecu repair services and replacement ecus on ebay.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start ???


sounds like a bad fuel pump. open the gas cap and listen when you turn the key to the on position, not all the way to engage the starter, you should hear a buzzing for 5 or so secands that is the fuel pump in your gas tank. if you dont hear that buzzing the intank fuel pump is probley not working.

Where is the fuel reset switch on a grand cherokee


Grand Cherokee isnt have "fuel reset switch"; if you have a problem there, could be a fuse or wiring problem in the cricuit; also could be fuel pump itself. If you need other details, just ask, we have 1993-'98 Repair Manual.

Keep in touch.

Ran out of gas in a 2001 jeep cherokee limited 4.7 awd now it wont crank is it the fuel pump or is there a relay or reset


Not aware of any re-set on Jeeps. But you said it won't crank? Starter is not working? Please clarify.
If it won't crank over from the starter, your problem is in the start circuit, and not affected by fuel pump operation. So, please reply.

Have to turn the ignition on and off several times to get the fuel pump working


Your Jeep ecu is in need of repair. Your jeep is having a common problem known as the "Delayed check engine light" starting problem. Next time you try starting the jeep and it the fuel pump won't prime, look at the dash.....the check engine light is not on and the fuel pump will not come on until the check engine light eventually come on, on the dash. Have it repaired and it will eliminate the delayed check engine light start problem.

1998 Jeep grand cherokee Laredo turning over but won't start. It sounds like it wants to start but just won't power into it. We changed spark plugs w/in last year, brand new battery, the alternator...


When it sounds like it wants to start but won't, it is almost always a fuel problem. When you first turn on the ignition key (radio off, in a quiet setting) do you hear a faint 'hum' from the rear of the car? If so, your fuel pump is probably alright, so the next check it to remove the small, light green plastic cap (it might be black, about the size of a tire valve cap) on the top of the engine-it is part of the fuel rail and has a small pin in the center of it. With a rag in your hand, hold it over the valve, and with the key on, use a small screw driver and push the pin in-the rag will keep you from getting sprayed, if all is alright, but if you get little or nothing, you have a problem with your fuel pump, filter, fuel regulator or you may have a plugged 'sock' at the bottom of the tank.

2000 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo wont start. Engine turn over . No noise from fuel pump with ignition on. Replaced fuel pump and filter.Turn ignition on- pump did not run.Jumped the fuel pump at the pump...


sounds alot the the pcm it controls the fuel pump and ign system but the anti theft would keep it from starting because the key has a transponder in it programmed for that vehicle and that would kill all ign if triggered

Jeep won;t start..new fuel pump installed


try the fuel filter and make sure you have proper oil pressure!! Remeber if you have tried craking to many bad times then the plugs are going to be fouled out!! Means that they are going to be drowned with gas and need replacing!! Also make sure your fuel pump is coming on!! You should hear a hissin or a hummin noise back from the fuel tank!
