Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The jeep died while driving i was accelerating and then the pedal dropped nothing. i had brakes but then the gas light,check gages light, and check engine light came on. it has about 3/4 tank of gas. i checked all the fuel lines and replaced the fuel pump and it still wont start. any ideas what could be the problem??
OK that's different...First, you will need to check the battery for 12v. (no testing can be done without proper voltage there) Lights working does not tell you this.
You will need to do a code check before replacing any parts. Without testing there are numerous possible causes and it will cost you $$$ to replace all of them before "hitting" on the right solution. (you just found that out by replacing the pump.) There are other individual component tests you can do using a digital volt/ohmeter.
Offhand, the first place I'd check is the crankshaft position sensor. They are notorious for this kind of failure BUT don't replace it till you test it! post back with any questions and results you get. (in other words, we are not finished yet!!)
