Get it scanned, likely a bad sensor causing it to inject too much or not enough fuel into the engine

Engine will turn over, but car will not stay cranked.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It uses an idle control valve to adjust the idle speed. The valve could be dirty or failing, or the throttle body could be dirty.

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.

Suspect idle air control valve. Also clean the throttle body. If its gummed up dirty it will restrict air.
