    I've Wiggle the switch but the gauge stays on empty,but it will crank over and it was just filled up last night.I guess it could be a fuel pump problem.

  • garyholt2 May 23, 2009

    Will check for power to fuel pump tomorrow if not, I'll check out the ignition switch thank you.

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    before changing the pump make sure it has power going to it.

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    As far as I can see, the only item that ties sender and run system together is the ignition switch. Can you make is stall if you wiggle the ign switch? or turn it slightly in one direction or another while running?

01 Jeep grand Cherokee I have crank but no start no gauges no power at fuel pump. All fuses good under dash & hood . Turn key to on, 1st warning light low fuel. 2nd key w/ line 3rd check engine help


you used voltmeter at the pump?> or just didnt here it run
do say this...please. details, matter....
it told you low fuel is it? is the fuel gauge near "E"
why not state that first.?
dead gauges, be 1st right, smacks of gross power loss.
right>? not clear to me what no gauges means.
but the voltmeter is #1 no?

did you tests fuse that look ok. fuse that look ok can be bad.
no gauges, means all dead, no movement,
well the fuel gauge must work , does it, does it match reality?
cranks but never runs. good input there.

does not run for the jeep 3 seconds.? (ASD rules)
no 12vdc power to pump, when cranking,?
01 grand WJ jeep usa.
is the skim lamp off, the cluster lamp for SKIM security is first.
it must go out after key turn on, or it will never run, ever.
I can help.
WJ jeep
this jeep has a voltage gauge, it must read 12v keyon
if not power is lost, or battery low.
if cranks that tells me the fues blew.
skim cuts spark and fuel, not cranking btw.
2002 cluster
http://jeepdied.com/cluster2002GC.JPG
see that lamp 12, if stuck on car will never start but will crank.
the lamp falses if skim is not working or stays on for ******* key.
we SCAN ALL CARS NOW.
IF You can not scan a modern jeep then it can near impossible to diagnose (a hard cold fact)
IF the ASD fails to work, the PCM tells you every time
all 8 ways for it to fail.
but that takes a scan tool (any modern scanner works,)

Check gauges light on, Temp gauge at 0, vehicle wont start.


Could be connected, but could also be two different problems.
It could be something in the key switch, or a wiring problem. Or it could be a wiring problem with the temp gauge and something else causing the engine not to start.
Do you have spark and fuel pressure at the injectors ? And does the gas gauge work ?

Not getting fuel


which engine?
my guess, is it really dont start.
so the assumption is not getting fuel.???
got spark? (3 or 4 cylinders , 1.0 or 1.3L)?
compression at spec? 150 min, warm. or hot?
if test fuel works or runs for 3seconds , proving engine is ok but no fueling?
that and only that means not getting fuel.

the fuel pump on many cars does not turn on , until you crank the engine.
The ECU decides this, (software inside) and varies.
some run for 3 seconds key on. others, not. depends on country and year, and engine sizes, (only year was stated)

EFI rules to use:
ECU does not inject if spark is bad. BY DESIGN.
nor at wide open throttle ,cranking (bad TPS?)
all ECU operater the pump, when cranking and running.
so check the fuel pressure with a real gauge, cranking.
only that works.

Engine don"t start 1minit cranking


I suspect that your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

When I go to crank 2000 jeep Cherokee limited the fuel gage works sometimes and it will only run for about three seconds what's wrong?


The computer grounds the fuel pump relay for 3 seconds to boost fuel pressure on start-up. If the computer does not see oil pressure or RPM it will not continue to ground the relay.
You would need to bypass the relay and see if the pump continues to run, then check the relay and the ground signal from the computer.
The gas gauge problem may be connected or something different.
The connector at the gas tank may be faulty which would affect both the power for the pump and the fuel gauge sending unit.

Cranking problems with 97 jeep 6 cylinder, with key on fuel pump not running, but did jump test on pump and pump is working, fuel gauge show empty, what can be the problem


Assuming you have the 4.0 six look on the fuel rail towards the front of the engine and find a small black cap that looks like a valve stem cap on a tire. Remove this cap and place a pressure gauge on the line. You should have about 40 PSI. If the fuel pump is running as you say then yo u should have pressure. There is also a micro screen on the fuel pump in the fuel tank which can get plugged up. But, usually the vehicle will start and starve for fuel when accelerating. If you don't have the required pressure delivery at the fuel rail then the problem is probably with the fuel pump located in the fuel tank. This is just a starting point for you. Hope this steers you in the right direction.

Engine will turn over but will not start running


start with the basics check for fuel fire and air check fuel peressure with a gauge should be 50 - 65psi
pull spark plug wire and place near ground if no spark in crank sensor or coil pack ensure air filter is cleaned

on fuel pressure if low check fuel filter pump may be working and cant get to fuel rail but could have damaged pump the fuel pump is controlled via crank sensor signal so no crank sensor signal no fuel
