Sounds like security. Lock it down, open the door with the key. Try to start. Newer ones have chips in the key. It will have to go on a scanner to check security codes. Code readers don't read security.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee keeps cutting off and won't start some times


I would start by going to an auto parts store and having them scan the computer for codes, even if the engine light is not on. i have heard about auto part stores saying they can not scan if light is not on. i am not sure if it is the scan tool they use or what but sometimes there could be a pending code where the computer is waiting to see the problem again before turning light on. if this is the case then ask them to scan it anyway or go to a shop and ask them to do it. the reason for this is that these trucks have crank sensor problems.

the next time is dies check for spark, remove a sparkplug wire and place a screw driver into the boot of the wire and place it near a ground, a metal surface and then have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. if there is no spark or you got a code of the crank sensor then i would replace the crank sensor, but if you have good spark and truck will not start then try spraying starting fluid into throttle body and see if it starts and dies out if it does then fuel pump problem.

If you have a fuel pressure gauge then hook that up and crank engine and see if you have fuel pressure and how much.

I will say that this does sound like a bad crank sensor, it dies and then wont start for a while ...

93 jeep won't crank. It is not turning over so to


Sluggish engine turnover can be the battery but won't be caused by gas. A problem related to gas would be more apparent after the engine is running.

My 2004 would cut off at idle,but start again after a min or so. But time it ran and cut off after a mile. Now it won't start at all. Won't turn over. It will move somewhat when I turned it by


No.
The crank sensor tells the computer when number one cylinder is at top dead center to find the timing for the spark plugs.
If the engine will not crank with the starter, the starter, key switch, battery or cables could be faulty.
Some of these items could also cause it not to start.
If the engine is stuck you won't be able to turn it at all.

My 1995 jeep grand cherokee Laredo won't start, or


You might not believe this, but check your battery. Some of these vehicles have cut-outs when the battery level goes below a preset amount.
I work on Ford brands and on them, a low battery level will even disconnect the Alternator circuit and mess with the starter. Some even act up when the battery slightly dips below 12 volts.

Your antitheft can make your starter cut out. And If you think about it, all of the measurements to make the engine run are based on feedback of voltage and amperage. This is how the engine management system adjusts. If your prime source of power is low, then all of the following electrical readings will be low. Some may be too low to work.

Your fuelpump will hold pressure in a closed system for hours. The fuel pressure regulator will command the fuelpump to stop working if the fuel pressure is at maximum. Without responses from the other components and after satisfactory pressure, the fuelpump will turn off.

Cranks but won't start sometimes. Also has cut out while idleing in traffic and again cranks but won't start. car has new battery.


From what i've seen over the years with the Chryslers i've encountered. Your describing to the "T" what appears to be a bad Crank Sensor. I will bet money that if you replace the crank sensor it will solve your problem. BUT...Also know that a bad fuel pump can do exactly what you describe in your statement. Once the pump get hot it gets to acting stupid, but yet again so can the Crank Sensor. Still, my money is on the Crank Sensor.

After I drive my jeep some, if it is somewhat warm or not cold weather, my jeep has a hard time starting. It may crank but run a little ways and cut off going down the road.I have had the coil, plugs, plug...


if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

Wont stay cranked


Any shop that will look at your vehicle will need to do a comprehensive diagnostics. An educated guess at what to look at is the idle air control valve. If that is receiving a signal but not responding, it may have gone bad and is in need of replacement. Before replacing, make sure that the passageway going to it is clear. Don't turn the plunger on the valve while it's off the throttle body.
