    unplugging the computer wasn't enough. Ended up replacing it. Ouch! But it's back to running great. Thanx for the tip. It was right on the nose.

    My 99 wrangler does the same. Only thing sometimes when it starts back up the key light comes on and stays on when it running. I was told its the transponder in the key or receiver. I going to take it in to get new keys programed. Was this mentioned prior to checking the computer?
    I have already changed the key cylinder (mine was bad ). I also changed the ignition switch and it still has the problem

I HAVE SAME ISSUE WITH A 96 DODGE DAKOTA, I CHANGE ALL THE SENSOR S AND STILL DOES IT,
THE TWO THINGS THAT WILL CAUSE THE ISSUE " AFTER A LOT OF RESEARCH "
IS A DYING FUEL PUMP OR YOUR COMPUTER, THERE IS A BAD PROCCESOR " CHIP ".
MINE IS THE COMPUTER, SO WHEN IT'S STARTS ACTING OUT I WILL DISCONNECT THE COMPUTER FOR 15 SEC. AND THEN CONECT IT BACK AND PROBLEM WILL BE GONE FOR A MONTH OR TWO.

I had a similar problem with my 99 Cherokee, it would start and then would not idol without holding down the gas, after it warmed up it would run fine for the most part it would sometimes die at a stop light or sign. I was told to replace the blower motor for the carburetor, works great and gas mileage improved.

99 jeep cherokee sport 4.0l 6cyl voltage will go to 19v


The problem sounds intermittent, if you put volt meter on the battery while it is at that 19volt mark/reading(on the gauge cluster) you will be able to see if it is true. If your alternator is really charging over 16volts the lights should be getting brighter then usual and/or they are burning out. Find out ASAP, if the alternator has a defective voltage regulator, it needs to be replaced. Prolong use will damage components.

Could be related to the fuel system. What have you replaced or checked so far. I would look at the battery and the charging system. Also look for a fuel leak, pump pressure, and the vehicles maintenance/repair history.

Your problem could very well be a crank sesor. The location of this is on the bell housing drivers side on top. I don't remember there being a camshaft sensor, unless your refering to the sensor in the distributor.
