1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee shuts down while driving.

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4. While driving the vehicle will shut down. Light and other power equipment will still function. Sometimes it will start immediately and sometimes it takes a little while. What could be the problem?

    Two common causes for that are either the crankshaft position sensor or fuel pump getting ready to fail. Proper testing will giver you a better idea of what's going on in there. Chilton and haynes manuals are available at most larger parts stores and have good instructions for testing.

My 06 grand cherokee laredo has a 4x4 emblem on the vehicle, and a traction button on the dash, how do I operate the 4x4?


Your jeep should have full time four wheel drive. To place the transfer case in low range look down to the console towards the rear and you will see a "T" shaped handle. To place it into low range you should stop place the vehicle into park and lift the T handle and in the dash a 4X4 indicator lamp will light up. The traction button on the dash would be used in 4 wheel high mode when you start to experience wheel slippage upon take off from a stopped position. This will give you a little more control. You only need to use the low range for very slow speeds in mud or snow. Otherwise just leave it in high range because it is always using 4 wheel drive. This is a very reliable system which Jeep has refined over the years. Your Grand Cherokee is not designed fro hard core off road use. Hard core off road use will destroy the undercarriage. The Grand Cherokee is more of a luxury soccer mom 4X4 with good road manners, a comfortable ride, and good reliability.
