Could be the ignition switch, or the running ignition ,if it has ign 1 and ign 2,out of the ignition module! Or if it has a ballast resister in the running circuit! Also checy Battery cable connections and any pigtails going off to the fuse block under the hood or onto the Ignition switch, No voltage drops allowed!

A problem with 1997 jeep Grand Cherokee, 6 cylinder is when I start it up it starts then dies immediately. I tried to rev it up it revs up and dies after.


Sounds like an immobiliser issue,the key has a transponder unit built into it, try the spare key first to eliminate a faulty key, if it does this with both keys then could be a fuel filter blockage

See if you can hear your fuel pump go on when you first turn your key if not replace it. It should have a humming noise when you first turn your key.

1990 jeep cherokee starts but when you let off the key it dies already replaced thi ign switch


the fuel pump runs on 2 diffierint circuts. one when the key is engaging the starter motor when you are starting the engine, and the other is to power the fuel pump after you release the key when the engine is running. there is a resistor on the drivers side on top of the inner fender that you can over ride with a jumper wire to check. if it needs to be replace its about $5.00. (its a ceramic thing about 2 inches long and bout 3/4 inches square.

Jeep dies when I try to shift. manual transmission, 4.0, 4wd. Jeep won't start when clutch is engaged and it dies when clutch is engaged. Reverse lights work, it will start and run if I start it in gear-...


You have a wire shorting out when you press the clutch. You will need to have help looking for it. Have someone set inside and press the clutch and look for a wire that is coming into contact with the linkage. Good Luck.

Jeep won't stay on


make sure you have the original key with the chip in it. a regular key copy you get from home depot will only unlock the doors. if you use it to strart the car, it will die immediately.

My car wont stay running


Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
