1998 jeep won't start 5.9 put a new starter in a couple weeks ago. Turns over fine.it will fire when you come back out of the key to the ignition position and stutter and die.?? When you crank it over


since you comment about it starting but dying it is POSSIBLE that it is the ignition switch, but since the vehicle is OBDII compliant beg borrow or rent a test unit and plug it in under the dash in the trapezoidal connecter and see what it has to say, The likelihood is that it isn't the switch since you state that it "sputters and dies". Normally when it is a switch it just shuts right down without any additional drama. This could be a bad ECM. As I have run across the exact same symptoms on the 98 JGC before.

1993 Jeep Cherokee starts when cold. Runs short distance.


It can possibly be the crank position sensor mounted on the top of the bell housing on the passenger side of the vehicle causing the problem. I have replaced a few of these for the same reason.

Car quits running


Check your brackets for a bare wire (ground) that should be firmly attached to your car's frame this wire grounds your engine's ignition system (no ground no spark) If the wire is not solidly attached to an unpainted part of the frame and, vibrates the engine will lose ground and, your engine will die.

1999 4.0L Jeep Grand Cherokee shuts down after 20-30 minutes.


I'd suggest the ignition control module, however I'd have a certified mechanic check it out just in case...

1994 Jeep Cherokee ignition problem


might check the crank sensor. it is located on the transmission bellhousing on top just off to the drivers side. if the pcm loses this signal the vehicle will die immediately and not restart until it sees the signal again
