Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
MY 2005 Jeep grand cherokee limited has been simply cutting off...an oil light shows for a sec and then i have to coast over to the side of the road...all gauges remain on and the power steering seems gone. Brought it into the dealer..they run diagnostics and can find nothing wrong but this happens usually 1x day at low speed traveling. Everytime i restart it its fine but its really annoying and potentially dangerous...any advice?They want me to have it towed in that state but its never in a good location and im at a loss..I have a good warranty but they seemed baffled...
The reason the oil light and power steering are on and gone is that the engine stalled out,which means no oil pressure,and without the engine running you have no power steering.when you say dealer do mean a jeep dealer?
if no current codes were in the computer, did they go into the history of codes to see if anything was there?
if it is a soft code which is one that will reset it's self when you cycle the key off to on,they won't find a current code if you pull over and turn the key off.May be you could let one of the mechanics drive it home 1 night and return it in the morning,that way he can drive it with the scan tool hooked up,you will have to be aware of what speeds you were doing,was you at a red light,going up hill,using the brake,you need him to know exactly what you were doing so he can drive the same way to duplicate the problem.
also have them check any TBS's for this problem,
