    '99 Jeep Grand Cherokee - A similar situation happened to me about 3 hours ago, I was driving along and then the engine just stopped and none of the gauges worked. I thought I ran out of petrol, but I filled it up to no avail. When I try starting the car, it does crank, but never starts. It's in the shop right now, but would appreciate if anyone has any insights.

    Best,

    I had the same exact problem. I rented a portable OBD II scanner from Auto Zone and pulled the code P1694. "Crank Position Sensor". You were dead on with this one, and it absolutely was a pain in the **** to get to. I literally had to drop the drive shaft and move linkage just to be able to get to it from underneath. You can't get to it effectively from the engine compartment. Took me 2 hours to change, but I was happy as a pig in slop when the engine kicked over for me.

    My jeep was fine last night-go to start this morning-cranks but won't start-got no bus reading. Every where I check says can be fuses-changed all the fuses-won't start; others say EMU connection-clean connection-OR replace Crank sensor. I am up for anything, but have never done this-any suggestions how to start.

    2001 Jeep Cherokee- started fine this morning - went to start it this afternoon and the engine cranks, the battery is fine, but all the gauges are dead - waiting to tow it to a dealer tomorrow to see what the problem is - thanks for the suggestions.

    My 2001 jeep will not start, it is full of petrol, but the gauges just dont work and it wont drive, although the engine does turn on the car will not move. I have has jeep tell me it is the PCM and they have replaced this 3 times, the PCM keeps blowing and they are offering me no solution except to refund me the cost of one of the PCM units we replaced. They cannot identify the cause and have left me with with a non-runner. Any solution out there?

I just had the same problem of my 2001 jeep cherokee not starting with no gauges responding and a "no bus" reading. After reading the responses I changed out the CPS and my jeep now runs great! however, it was not as hard as I thought it would be. Very easy with 7/16 bit and a 10inch extender. In and out in less than 5 minutes. Finding it was the hardest part. Blends in with the bell housing. I did this from under the jeep with a good shop light. I paid about $80 for the part here in Atlanta, GA

Crankshaft Position Sensor most likely, that's what it was with me. It is a pain to change so good luck. If that does not work you may look into: Camshaft Sensor, Fuel Pump/Filter, Injectors

My recommendation is to check your skim module in your ignition. This could be a tell tale sign that your PCM is going out in your vehicle, depending on what fault codes you have. All these electric components often times send surges to other components in your vehicle. In your particular jeep, it may be the skim module in the ignition.

My Jeep won't start. I replaced the battery but the car will not start. The gauges all go crazy and I hear a ticking noise, but it seem there is no power getting to the engine.


Does the engine turn over at least? The gauges getting crazy points to a PCI data bus problem, then also the engine will crank, but not start. Could be one of the components connected to the bus. Also common is water ingress in a large connector on passenger side bulkhead, which causes the data bus to short out..

2003 grand Cherokee cranks over and will not start. Changed the cps already. The fuel gauge reads empty, empty light comes on and circle with key and line threw it is on dash board. When it does start...


You will have to check each connector on the PCM for moisture and the wires for shaving. Fuel quantity info comes from the PCM via the PCI data bus. Moisture in one of the connectors could short the data bus out and the engine will not start and indicators go to zero.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Security Key Flashing/ Wont Crank after dead battery


A flashing key symbol normally means an invalid key. Do you have an other key to try? That all the gauges stay at 0 seems to point to a PCI data bus problem. Was the jeep parked outside or at least standing in the rain? Many times water ingress in connector C200 up in the passengers footwell area is the problem. The connector must be removed, cleaned/dried and reconnected. Ofcourse the source of the water ingress must be found, which many times comes from the windshield.

Change the crank sensor the cam sensor and the pcm and the 2001 jeep grand cherokee still is having an issue staying started and the gauges going crazy as well as the windows not working


I cant explain the windows but the stalling can be the wiring harness at the under the hood . you did not mention engine size but i know on in line 6 the harness goes around the rear of valve cover if you move it around it will stall if bad.

Jeep stalls gauges don't work windows and locks and radio don't work


when you state it wouldn't crank, do you mean the starter won't engage or that it just spins over and doesn't start? if no gauges or no starter engagement, then check the battery, battery connections,and the starter for excessive amperage draw. if the starter spins and the engine won't start, then check crankshaft position sensor first. the crank sensor is a more common failure than the distributor or any of the other things you mentioned.

2001 jeep cherokee want start


Dont worry about wire checks at this point. If the "no bus" message went away after disconnecting the sensor, then the sensor is bad. Replace the crank sensor and all will be good in the world again.
