Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

Hi I have a 96 jeep cherokee country. It will start, I will drive it a distance, can be short or long, then shut it off. When I go to start it again, it won't start. After it sits for a while sometimes hours, it will start again. Any ideas as to what to look for?

It sounds like your starter. Sometimes when starters get old the armature and/or field windings swell when they get hot. The reason is rather complex but I can tell you this is the most likely problem and the only fix is to replace the starter.

Had similar problem with 96 Jeep 4.0L engine. Tracked it down to the connector for the distributor pickup. Spliced in another connector and hasn't stalled since. Also, have you had any codes? Easy way to check on Chrysler products: turn key on, off, on, off, on (not starting) and watch the 'engine light' on the dash. It will flash off/on. Count the flashes with short pauses between and longer pauses between code. When you get a 5 count and 5 count, that is the end. This may also help

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

If you leave your ignition key in the normal running position and then slip underneath your car from the rear of the passenger's side front tire, you can slide forward to see the starter and it's solenoid on it's backside. If you take a screwdriver and short between the smaller, center screw on the solenoid and the upper, larger screw (or bolt) you should get a spark and the sound of the starter motor cranking over the engine. Explanation: The solenoid tends to get sticky after a while and becomes reluctant to go back to it's "at rest" position. After driving the car awhile it normally falls back into place.
