My jeep dies going down the road. I took it to a Shop and he said it was the security strip in my key causing the car to shut down. Could that be true?

This is not true, once the jeep is running it will not stall out it will only not restart if that the problem but will not shut it down, i think you have another problem like a bad crank sensor or fuelpump, try having the codes read and see if the computer stored any codes when the engine cuts out, there must be a code or two stored in the computer, there are many auto part stores that will scan it at no charge.good luck .hope this helps.

Jeep just shuts off driving down the road but will restart in 5 minutes. the guages go crazy before this happens.

The first thing i would check is the crankshaft position sensor, I have seen the wires for the sensor melt on the exhuast, i would also check the oxygen sensor harnesses for the same concern. shorted sensor wires will cause powertrain control module to shut down.

Why wont my 95jeep grand cherokee6cyl turnover when cranking? I have gas powerand at times when driving it would shut-off why is this happening

Jeeps have a known problem of a crank shaft position sensor going bad. It's a sensor that works off rotation of the crank. to know where and what position it's in. The part is about $55 and it's located by the front of the transmission where it meets the engine block. Very easy to change. I've changed a few on Jeeps and they had the same problem with the Jeep shutting down going down the road. After a few days to 2 weeks it will go completely out and leave you stranded. So I" advise to get it fixed ASAP. "Crank Shaft Position Sensor"

I will be driving down the road and my jeep will just die on me and I can't get it started again. I wait about an hour and it will suddenly start.Happens about 2-3 times a week and I can't figure out what...

Most often that is a symptom of a fuel pump beginning to fail. As it runs, it begins to overheat and bind. After it cools down, it frees itself up and then works again. However, the same problem can also be caused by a crank position sensor going bad.
Next time it happens, turn the key on while someone listens to hear if the pump (inside the tank) is running. If not, likely that's what is failing.
Crank sensor can be tested with a digital ohmmeter, but many times it will not show up as bad until it completely fails.

2003 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 shuts off going down the road but starts back up , but sometimes it you have to let it sit for awhile

Two common causes for that symptom are a fuel pump going bad or a crank sensor about to fail. If when in "no-start" it will start if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking, likely it is the pump. If you are not seeing spark during no-start, then likely it is the crank sensor. This said, there are a number of other items that are heat-sensitive and can give similar problems. That is why shops do a series of tests before replacing anything. The "quick tests" I gave you are fairly reliable but nothing replaces real testing.
Good luck If you need any further info just ask!

Shuts off will driving, especially if I hit a bumpy road.

check the wires to the fuel pump if they have rubbed against something and the insulation wore through hitting bumps or rain could cause it to short and kick the relay and resets again and will start
