That is correct the most common reason for this type of problem with these jeeps is the crank sensor, the sensor is hard to see and is a little tight to get at, a lift would be the ideal way to replace it but if one is not available then on the ground will have to do. lets see if i can get you a diagram.okay im not sure what engine is in your jeep but its a 6 cylinder or an 8 cylinder engine.if you have the 6 cylinder engine the sensor is on the left side near the top of the trany housing but if you have the 8 cylinder then its on the rightside near the top. heres a diagram of the 8 cylinder engine the 5.2 this shows you the rightside from standing behind the trany. hope this is helpful. good luck. Note; if you have the 4.0 engine it the same area just on the leftside.My 1994 Jeep grand Cherokee - johnjohn2_82.gif

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee and it always starts up, but sometimes it just shuts off randomly while I'm driving and after a few minutes of rest turns back on, the battery will still be worki


Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im


I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.

My Jeep Grand Cherokee car cuts of


Likely the ignition system is shutting down. Code tests must be done as well as individual component tests, using a digital multi-meter and a manual such as chilton or haynes as a guide. The small explosion you hear likely is from a small amount of unburned fuel entering the hot exhaust and exploding right after the ignition is off. Once you fix the cause of shutdown that will disappear. The main items I'd test first are the crank sensor, cam sensor and the ignition switch itself, any of which can cause a shutdown. Also make sure the fuel pump isn't getting hot and turning itself off.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.
