Where is the ignition module in a 94 jeep cherokee


Change your ignition coil. Mine wouldn't start in the cold. I had to give it gas & it would backfire until it warmed up.

My 1987 jeep cherokee pioneer will start but then you drive to the store come back out and it will not start until it sets for 5 or 6 hours..


You may have a faulty ignition coil. Check to see if system is firing when it won't start. If you have fire it is probably fuel pump.

97 jeep grand cherokee is not getting spark at the ignition coil I think its the PCM


Have your crank sensor checked. It won't send a signal to fire the coil if the crank sensor is bad.

When you turn the switch on there is no ignition spark on 1997 Jeep Cherokee engine


Check the ignition coil assembly. it could have simply shorted/loose connection leading to a blown fuse. if coils shorted then replace coil.

1997 jeep grand cheerkee tunes over but won,t start no fire from coil to distributor


So you have B+ to coil but no B+ from coil to distributor. Sounds like the ignition module.
Its not triggering coil to fire . Double check it with a test light at negative side of coil and then to ground.crank the vehicle if light flickers its ok if not its your culprit.
Should light flicker then test its the wires from coil to distributor, distributor , rotor and plug wires.
Honestly if the light flickers your not losing anything by replaceing the items from the coil tower to the plugs.

1997 jeep grand Cherokee dies while driving.Somtime starts right up,somtime not.Changed air filter,spark plugs,wires,d-cap, ignition coil,map sensor and computer.Latley I've noticed that I'm not getting...


If the ignition turns on and dies while driving, you might have a clogged idle air control valve. The valve is located in the throtle body, just below the air intake hose. Locate the idle air control valve, un plug the connector, unscrew it (you will need star screw driver) and next clean it using an electronic contact cleaner spray, I use 3M for that. Next, make sure all cleaning liquid inside is gone (it evaporates quickly) and re assemble it. This should solve your problem once for all.

Pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator and see if gas is in the line. If you have gas in the line replace the regulator.
