Your engine computer is dying. You will either need to replace the three power capacitors located inside the engine computer case or get an entire new computer itself. It's a commonly known problem, with the 90's grand cherokee.

Why don't i have power to my ignition or fuel pump on my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The problem could be a bad ignition switch. I would start by checking ALL the fuses - both under the dash and under the hood. The under hood fuse panel should also have a fuel pump relay. You may want to replace that to see if it helps.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the ignition switch seems to be getting bad. I can usually get it to start by jiggling the key around and sliding it in and out while turning it. It will start...


it sounds like the ignition cylinder itself is worn and needs replacement. the fact that you cant turn the key. thing that can cause this is if you have to many keys on your key chain .
