You think? its probably telling you that at least something is not working appropriately..while driving have a buddy climb out on the hood, no, take hood off so he can really see, punch it and tell him to
see if the turbo comes on. easier when starting, if the light comes on,
look at the tach, if its screaming 7K then it might be on, else, its probably broken.

Turbo not kicking


It may have seized up turbo bearings, when they get hot they expand and the turbo blades will not turn. Pull the hose and try to move them, if there is any resistance then that is likely the problem and you will need a new turbocharger installed. Don't replace it until a qualified tech has confirmed that turbo is the problem.

Lights that go on and off is indication of a short somewhere, if this is caused by a ground wire being loose than the problem can escalate to more serous problem... like burning of components, what happend in my case is there was a loose ground wire, this burned out my ignition, the ignition made all the electronics shut down, including head lights at 9pm in the evening...

The first years of that body shape, like the 93 Grand Cherokee, had ecu computer problems. Next time it won't start, check to see if the check engine light does lights up on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, before cranking. If it does not, the fuel pump will not kick on, until that check engine light does come on. It's referred to as the delayed check engine light problem, on early to mid 90's Jeeps. If you find out that is indeed the problem, you can have the ecu computer repaired.

check the ignition module, poss near the distributer for heatsink (contact) paste on the base to draw the heat away from the module. With the engine light coming on, it should have thrown a code possibly a bypass ignition or no pulse while cranking. If so refresh the ignition module.

98 Sierra 3/4ton 4x4 turbo wont start


When you turn the key to on, the dashlights have to come on and go off when you turn it to the starting position. Make sure you have a good battery first. No dash lights indicate a bad ignition switch. Check all fuses and relays. But I am pretty sure it is the ignition switch.
