My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while driving

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts of on me every couple of days. It will only cut off while coming to a stop, or idle or going very slow.. Never cuts off while getting 15 mph or higher. Have replaced Computer, ignition coil, and crankshaft position sensor. Cuts off when engine is hot or cold. Jeep mechanic says it could be fuel pump but then again he said it was the ignition coil first then the crankshaft position sensor and then the computer. Getting tired of replacing parts and it still has the same problem.

Sounds a whole lot like a dirty or malfuncitionig idle air control valve. A coil would generally show up as a miss under load or high rpm, crank sensors generally work or they dont, only sometimes giving you a miss, but that would be all the time at any rpm. Computer, I doubt for too many reasons to list. Could also be related to a bad throttle position sensor or a very slight vacuum leak.

Try the map sensor it controls the air flow thru the engine.

Car cuts out sometimes when you are driving. Car sometimes struggles to start. It does start eventually and can drive perfect for a few days, then it suddenly cuts out when you are driving and it appears...


I had that problem. I unscrewed the idle control valve (near the air intake), applied contact cleaner spray and all dirt came out. After it was dry, I put it back on its place. No problem ever since.

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im


I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.

Jeep just cuts off when driving, after a few seconds it will cut back on. all instruments and engine turn off. then they will come back on after a few seconds that seems like a long time.


If alternator isnt working and dodgy battery terminal this would cause this problem ,but not sure if battery has to be connected on this model for the alternator to charge ,but check and clean then grease battery terminals its worth a try

96 grande cherokee has short in/around pcm,it cuts out when wiggl


Remove the harness plug and check each pin for corrosion and connection to the wire behind it. The problem is a wire or wire connection, but I can't tell you which one but likely its a ground or power lead as sensors would usually not shut it off but would give you a component failure code and check engine light.
