Hello
I would check the fuel pump relay
it is,,Right behind the battery under the hood. Pull off the black cover with two turn clips and it should be the second relay if you're looking at the car.

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will start then immediately die. I've replaced the Crankshaft sensor, ignition coil, fuel filter, battery, new plugs and wires, new cap and rotor, tried swapping the fuel pump...


Try the M A P sensor. I had a jeep that did the same thing. It would start up and run for maybe the count of two and shut off. It was the map sensor. If I remember correctly it measures humidity and barometric pressure and stuff like that to tell the computer how to mix the air and fuel ratio.

HAVE A 1996 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. EACH YEAR ABOUT DEC WHEN ITS REAL COLD SNAP JEEP WONT START AND LIGHTS ARE WEAK AND HAVE TO JUMP IT WITH PACK TO START.THEN RIDE AROUND TO CHARGE BATTERY AND WHEN COME TO...


Next time you replace your battery you need to find one with more cold cranking amps. It is much harder for the battery to produce the voltage needed in the cold. Batteries produce their peak amperage when new which may explain why you have no problems for a year.
