Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Intermittent Start and Gauge Fluctuation

Hi,

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has had some trouble starting. A lot of times even when it does start, it is very slow to turn over. Other times it doesn't turn over at all, just complete silence. Then, without the key in the ignit at all there is a weird ticking sound. The strangest thing is the gauges moving rapidly from left to right and back. So this morning it started, then as i'm driving the gauges and lights and radio all fluctuated and going crazy. Ground wire? Battery? Relay switch? Can anybody offer a solution to try?

has the crank sensor been replaced yet? If not, this is what gives the most no start troubles I have seen. If you want to know for sure, you will need to take it somewhere when it does it so they can see what is dropping 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.
