Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Been there, drove me nuts along with ever shop it was ever at. It's actually why the last owner sold it to me so cheap, she almost got hit in an intersection and was afraid to drive it after that cuz noone could figure it out. No codes, just dies and then starts right up. ONE out of the thousand times it happened to me it tripped the crank sensor error code so i started there. Replaced the sensor and problem went away so i thought great... but came back during a hard left one day a month later. So I knew it had to do with something in that general area and started poking around. The crank sensor plugs into the jeep's wiring harness right under the center console. as the wire goes forward in the harness (away from the crank sensor plug and toward the computer) it snakes between several large screws from the factory that hold the center console in the car. One of the screws wore through the wire harness housing over the years and began to short out that wire, causing a no spark condition and stalling the truck. Interestingly enough this only happens as the truck flexes that certain way during a left turn and the harness rubs the screw. Wierd i know but trust me on this one. Taped up the wire, moved the harness over an inch and 2 years later still smooth sailing. Get your truck in the air, feel around for the harness that's rubbing the underside of the floorboard and pull it away from any fasteners that may be wearing through the wires. Good luck
