Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee doesnt start half the time

Sometimes when i go to start my jeep it turns over but wont crank especially when it is cool or in the early morning i have had it serviced at a jeep dealership twice but i guess they didnt know what they were doing we also installed a new fuel pump and filter --also when it does finally decide to crank then it will start missing and will die at a stop light and then it may take a good 30 minutes for it to start again

Sounds like a poor connection somewhere...Best time to check is when it's in no-start condition...When running, obviously whatever isn't working is (temporarily). Once you identify the system (fuel, spark etc) that's not working, check all wires and connectors for good contact and continuity.

My 1996 grand jeep cherokee wants to start..cranks up but wont..however, when i put key in ignition..none of the dials move...they're all dead


First the dials will not normally move until the vehicle is started. This is to reduce the load on the battery when cranking. You need to check for spark and fuel and all of the normal things for a non-starting vehicle.

1996 jeep grand cherokee 5.2L v8 is cranking but wont start doesnt look like its getting a spark


Might be your jeep's ecu is bad. Does the check engine light come on your dash, when you turn the ignition key to on, before cranking? If not, the ecu is bad. If the check engine light does come on, it may be the crank sensor is bad on your jeep.

If it has a 4.0 liter engine the crank position sensor has a long history of causing this problem.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start with the first turn.


It seems like your battery and starter are okay. I'd be more inclined to make sure engine has a good regular spark, and fuel pressure. From what you've said, I'd first check the distributor cap for any cracks or moisture...hope this helps.

After i start my 95 jeep grand cherokee limited


crank or camshaft sensor will cause this, a bad crank sensor will cause it not to start or start hard. it controls timing and sends info to pcm for proper fuel mixture and spark at the right time.
