2002 Grand Cherokee P0601 Error

I also have this error on a 02 grand. Is there any other known issue that might cause this error? Jeep runs great otherwise, but I cant pass a emission test with the light on.

I just bought this jeep, and someone replacing a rear o2 broke the harness clip, which let the wiring fall onto the hot exhaust pipe and burn it off, shorting the o2 out. I changed the sensor and installed a new fuse in the underhood power distribution. The p0601 is now the only code I am getting. I can clear it out but it will be back within a trip or so.

I just want to make sure im not missing something before I put out the money for a new pcm. Thanks to all!

P0601 is an internal PCM failure. It is not passing one of it's self-tests and the code sets. The only fix for this code is to replace the PCM.

P0601 error code

Internal control module (main computer) issue. Expensive to fix, so maybe try resetting, especially if it is not drivable. Have never done this on a Jeep, but here are steps: Disconnect battery cable (negative, then positive). Press and hold brake pedal for at least 30 seconds (ensures no residual voltage in system). Reconnect battery cables (positive, then negative). Start and run. Give it time (several starts and several miles of mixed driving) to re-learn.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I am getting a bad crank shaft sensor/misfire error code. I have replaced the crank shaft sensor, spark plugs and coil but the problem stiil remains. What else could...

Your engine will also have a Camshaft position sensor too (P0340). This can sometimes make the Crankshaft sensor code come on (P0335). Your misfire could be down to a low oil level or faulty knock sensor. You have ruled out the possibility of it being a spark related issue. Hope this helps...

P0601 Code. PCM... blah... The vehicle is running

P0601 is an internal PCM failure, meaning it didn't pass one or more of its self-tests. If it is running ok and you don't mind the light being on, drive it. A replacement is several hundred dollars depending on where you are and the market value of the area dealerships.

2002 jeep grand cherokee with 4.0 engine will die but restart

I do not know what the error codes mean but know that When I has the sme problem with my jeep it was the fuel pump. What happens is when it heats up it es less and less fuel and chokes the engine. When cold it runs better. remember gas in the tank helps cool the pump but sounds like your pump needs replacing as it is starting to give out.
