My Jeep Grand Cherokee will start but will not stay idling unless I keep my foot on the gas. I know it is not the battery or alternator. Can you give me any suggestions?

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee has started needing a jump to get started about once a week.. had the alternator and battery tested, both are good. 2 nights ago it wouldnt start, so I got a jump and drove it...


I would have a load test done on the battery as there is a dead cell evident from the number of jump starts you need. Have an auto electrician test the alternator for charge rate and out put. check drive belt condition and tension.

Have throttle body cleaned and "minimum air rate" adjusted. Computer looses learned memory when battery is disconnected and has to start over again.

I can give you something to try. Since the Jeep is a chrysler product, chrysler vehicle computers run off of the battery and in most cases at idle the alternater is not pushing a ramped charge. Try cleaning the battery terminals and see how it goes. I have found that it works in most cases and is the easiest to do. Let me know how it goes.

Changed alternator and disconnected battery in the process. security system will not let me start the car


I don't think 1995 Grand cherokee has an immobilizer. Aftermarket security. Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas? Sounds like you need to perform the idle relearn procedure.

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

I had to jump start my 96 GC. It won't stay running unless I give it gas. Tow truck driver thinks its the alternator. Yes or no?


Possible, But it should idle with the jumper cable hooked up. after charging the battery, does it start on its own?
