Ours did the same thing & it was the crank sensor.

Dunno why but Jeeps (we own several) seem to love to develop bad battery connections; when that happens with us, I take my trusty Chinese (cheap ****) battery terminal cleaner and scrub the clamps inside and out.

    If you didn't remove and clean the starter cable, you might do that and depending on where you live, you may have corrosion in the fuse box. Pull a couple and check to see if their 'pins' are still bright and free of crud.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L V6 Last time it started it ran really rough, head lights wouldn't come on, gauges malfunctioned, then it died. Now I have no firing even from the coil and fuel pump not...


check the battery for full charge, you should have a minimum of 12.4 volts, once its charged ( I'd have a parts store do a LOAD test on it ) start the vehicle, and check the posts again, it should be giving you a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts,, if not, and you've cleaned all the contacts you have a bad alternator

Is the fuel pump located inside the tank on a 1989?


dont go replacing everything...thats gonna get expensive real quick...especially that fuel pump. yep...the pump is inside the tank. stand out side your truck,and turn the key over,but not enough to start it. you should haer a whirring sound lasting about 2-3 secs. come from the back of the truck. this is the fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it...then the pump is bad. if you do hear it, have a friend turn the key while you look at the carb/injectors to see if fuel is spraying thruthem,if it isnt....then you have a clogged fuel filter. BUT...b4 you do any of this...check your fuel pump relay and fuse to make sure they are good. a 10 cent fuse beats a 200 dollar pump any day.
keep me posted!!

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. When


Check your fuel pump ,fuel lines,.One of the most overlooked starting causes is fuel delivery. Find the fuel rail to the injectors. Assuming you don't have a fuel pressure gauge, remove the dust cap on the fitting on the fuel rail and press the center pin in the valve to see if there's a good amount of pressure for a very brief second. There will be no continuous pressure unless the engine is running or is being cranked over. Have somebody crank it for you for a second to see if high pressure is present.

If not, first look at the fuel cutoff switch usually located in the inside stowage compartment of the vehicle. See if the reset button clicks when you press it. Next check the fuel pump fuse and relay, and finally the pump itself could be bad.

Where is the fuel pump inertia switch located on a 1998 Cherokee?


there isnt one. if the fuel pump does not run, ck the ASD and FUEL PUMP RELAYS. Turn the key on and listen real close to the fuel tank, see if you can hear it come on the 2 seconds, Sometimes you can rap on the tank with a mallet or board when cranking, and this will knock it loose, it that gets it running you will need to replace the fuel pump.

No fuel presure and no spark, fuses and relays check out,mechanic checked fuel pump,it is okay,fuel gauge will not read when key is on,will crank but no fire


if the cam or crank sensor are bad it will prevent the shutdown relay from sending out power ,,,hence no spark or fuel pressure
