    EXACT SAME PROBLEM, ACTS LIKE A SHORTED CRANK SENSOR -BUT CRANK SENSOR IS FINE

  • drews01ninja Aug 22, 2008

    cant be a crank sensor, because on the 96 the crank sensor does not control fuel. this jeep wont even attempt to fire up, turns over perfect, but no spark and no fuel pressure

    I have the same exact problem- no fuel pump activity, no spark, no fuel guage activity and no volt guage activity- engine cranks strong, 3/4 tank of fuel- did notice the power lead for the fuel guage and the ground wire for the fuel pump by hte tank were bare and possibly touched- could have shorted the PCM?

Ok, I had a very similar trouble. It cost me a lot in diagnostic time, but here's what my mech. found.
Symptom, no fuel flow. I don't remember the guages status. Fuses and relays were good. but had blown fuel pump fuse in the past.

Found: Hose connector (A.C.) in vicinity of the fuse box under the hood. (underneath) was chafing the harness from the fuse block to fuel pump, guages, etc. wiggle adjustment temp fixed. Mech found short/ground/ exposed copper wire and repaired the connections. also, protected wire from future damage.

A poorly place connector / harness and vibration were the contributors to the incident. Fix was good and so far permanent.

Let me guess- your check engine light doesn't light either, does it? Unplug the crank sensor and turn the key on. If the check engine light comes on, replace the crank sensor and drive away happy. That's what I did. You can also verify the crank sensor by using an ohm meter- if you get a resistance reading, the crank sensor is bad. Good luck. I believe it's the black and red wire you need to pull the reading from- but honestly not positive.

96 jeep grand Cherokee has no power to fuel pump or ignition


define power.
1: can't hear buzz?
2: fuel pressure at the fuel rail is zero PSI cranked.
3: my volt meter tells me the pump has 0vdc across the pump pins cranked?

I cant guess any of this and is 100 %^ Germain.

Ive got fuel at the injector rod on my 1994 v8 jeep grand cherokee larado but the car wont start .. this all comes after runnin out of gas. its almost wasnts to but doesnt stay on at times and now won


If you ran out of gas there is a very good chance that the fuel pump relay has blown a fuse or requires a reset. Fuses and relays are in the main fuse box behind battery. When you turn your ignition on to the one setting before the starter engages you should be able to hear the fuel pump running. If it does not then check those fuses. If it does run then there is a good chance that the crank shaft positioning sensor needs replacement.

When i start the engine on my 04 jeep 4.7 liter engine it sputters but clears up and idles good and it runs good no loss of power and no check engine light. it happens when it sits for a priod of time i...


The first thing i would check is the fuel system hook a fuel pressure gauge up to the fuel rail and check the fuel pressure, after you have verified the fuel pressure is good let the gauge sit and monitor how much "bleed down" occurs if the bleed down is out of spec i would bet the fuel pressure regulator is bad or theres a leaking fuel injector causing fuel to drip into 1 or more of the cylinders causing a rich condition at startup.

Grand cherokee 2000 starting probs


you need to see if you have spark and check all fuses and see if you have fuel pressure and injector pulse if no spark and no injector pulse suspect crank sensor or ignition control module if no fuel pressure check fuses then relays and then suspect pump

Power everywhere but the gauges and now won't start.was running put in reverse and it died ?checked the fuses and now lost help


What have you done so far. Need to see if the vehicle has both fuel and spark. Check the battery cables and inline fuses. Is it a crank/no start or no crank. A cold battery should be at 12.6 volts, should charge @ around 14volts., If you have spark @ all 6 plugs then see what your fuel pressure is. then go from there. let me know how it is going.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee no start


I just fixed the problem with the 96.

Crank no start
No fuel pressure
No spark
No volt gauge and no fuel gauge
No scanner obd working when hooked up says error no communication. With the help of this awesome guy randy from washington, i did some relay jumping, more wire tracing and found it was the crank sensor was shorting out with just the key on. with key on, locate the crank sensor behind the valve cover, unplug it and see if everything comes back on, this is what it did for me. Thanks again randy for the help and this gentleman can be reached @ http://www.aceautomotive1.com.
