1st check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine, if yes then [ok ] " if no fuel was present , then look under the hood on the drivers side , there is a black box that should be labeled power distribution, also , in front of it is another box, these box's contain fuses, and relays, 1 of the relays is a start relay, and another one is the fuel pump relay and 1 is the fuel pump fuse, check all of these to see if they are still good, if all checks out and none of these have to be replaced, then it sounds like the fuel pump is bad, open up the gas door, where you pump gas into, and have some one to turn the ignition key on, but do not start , have them to do this at the same time, you place your ear up to the gas tank entry, this is where the gas goe's into, if you hear the pump running, then pump is working, if no sound, then it sounds like the fuel pump is bad , and will have to be replaced, hope that this information ahs helped you.

Tp fuel pumps from same year different wireing


What you brought is an tank and unit from 1995 JGC. from 1993 till 1995 they have the same fuel pump. 96'er Jeeps start with OBD - Systems and they have other fuel pumps. You can't change the plug ins, because you may have other fuel filter in your Granny. Check filter and fuel lines if they fit with the unit you brought. If not, you need another unit from a real 96'er Jeep

New remotes


Assuming that this is concerning a 1996 Grand Cherokee, a new remote needs to be programmed via the Jeeps computer connector, It cannot be programmed by the user for this model.  If you buy the remote from the dealer, see if they will program it at no charge (they should).  If you bought it elsewhere, you will most likely have to pay for the programming.  I got a quote a few years ago for $30, but last week I answered the same question for another user and it cost them $60.  Yes, it is a rip-off especially since it takes just a few minutes.  Check with other repair shops as some may have the programing equipment needed, at a lower price.

Hesitating


Have you cleaned the throttle body and idle air valve?? if not do that, also the ECT or engine coolant sensor can be giving the fuel injection computer a wrong temperature signal, that will make the engine hesitate. That has to be tested on a scanner, so most likely best left to the dealer.
