Hello primeiro, does your Jeep stay running(5min) or does it start and then dies, like it is not getting enough gas? What is the small red lamp that is flashing? Mine is my security alarm indicater. What do u mean by scanner? and takes cod 12? cod? 12? Let me know what you have tried or what else may have been going on in past but seemed to have stop, for un- reason. Jeeps can be puzzling, and then be fine. Everytime it would act up I would call the Jeep people and schedule a appt. in a day or so, it would keep acting up and then when I drive onto the Jeep people lot it would not act up. AT ALL. I was told there are other Jeep owners that sweared something was wrong but when taken to be check it would be fine. The Jeep people say that I am not the first to feel dumb or I was delusional. So now instead of calling, I go directly there when I had a problem or noise and I had them jump in for a ride to see what I was experiencing. "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand." I now have on my Jeep on my back window. I LOVE my Jeep,even though they can drive us crazy. Good Luck and Happy Jeepin'

Gauges top working security system not working vehicle will start but only runs 2 seconds

fuses, check all fuses in all fuse boxes. under dash and hood.
the IMMO SKIM , stops fueling of the engine.
the SKIM lamp in the dash shows, that. it sticks on or flashes
you have a transponder key ,right?
and you insert the key as the oper guide states, and the lamp SKIM
self tests. then must go out, if not, the engine will never run more than 2 seconds by Design.
  1. so fix the dead dash first.
  2. then get the SKIM lamp out
  3. then start car.

Sentry Key Immobilizer module.

I have a 95 jeep grand cherokee and the lo beams dont work. highbeams are fine, replaced lights, switch is working, and all fuses are fine. is there anything else i should check?

There may be a lamp outage module, and you may have low and high beam relays in one of the fuse boxes in the engine compartment.
Check your owners manual if you have one.

I'd start with a new flasher relay (they're cheap). If not that, then go to those lamp sockets and check for corrosion. I had issues similar w my 95 was the flasher.

Had similar problem with 96 Jeep 4.0L engine. Tracked it down to the connector for the distributor pickup. Spliced in another connector and hasn't stalled since. Also, have you had any codes? Easy way to check on Chrysler products: turn key on, off, on, off, on (not starting) and watch the 'engine light' on the dash. It will flash off/on. Count the flashes with short pauses between and longer pauses between code. When you get a 5 count and 5 count, that is the end. This may also help

95 jeep cherokee it wont stay running at red lights

Try a tank of supreme gas, plus a can of SEAFOAM in the gas tank.After running about a half of this tank out. Pull positive post off the battery for about 1-minute. This will reset computer, and it might clean up the fuel problems that you are having. If it keeps on, change the O2-sensor out and do the above steps again.

95 Grand Cherokee center column data screen resets after shut off

I had the same problem with my 1995 grand cherokee. I had to remove the message center and resolder the connections where the plugs go into the back of it. Not hard to do if you are used to soldering small connections, if not, take it out and bring it to someone who is, like a tv repair shop.

95 jeep cherokee not starting

Check the small wire on the starter to see if you are getting 12v there with the key turned. If you are, then it is possible that the starter (&or solenoid) that checked out good last year is not good now. If no power at small wire, then check neutral safety switch.
