Most likely i the crank sensor is very very common on these types of vehicles, it is a two (2) wite sensor located on the transmission bellhousing on the Drivers side near the top, If you lay under the truck look along the transmission way up high where the transmission meets the engine you will see it its usually Black, Unclip the lock on the connector, an have to use a 24-36" 3/8" drive extenstion and a wobble 10mm socket to take the sensor off It lifts UP out of its mounting place when you get the new one FROM JEEP not a parts store FROM JEEP FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT UNDER ANY CONDITINS WHATSOEVER REMOVE THE SMALL PAPER PIECE FROM THE END ON THE CRANK SENSOR JUST INSTALL IT!!!!! IT IS THERE FOR A REASON!
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya
BUT..... now be advised I am only tellng you that the crank sensor is common I am not telling you that is your problem though it sounds like the typical symptoms.
There is also another sensor that will act IDENTICAL to the crank sensor its the CAM SENSOR it is in the distributor under the rotor sometimes called a pick-up or distributor pick-up its a good idea to change both at the same time FROM JEEP no parts stores Please do not let price keep you from using the BEST PARTS AVAILABLE THERE IS A DIFFFERENCE IN QUALITY AND ORIGINAL FACTORY IS DEFINATELY BETTER.

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

If you have no 'check engine' light, you will need a technician to diagnose it and I would recommend NOT driving it. If, for example, a rod cap has come loose, it will destroy the engine if it gets even looser.

It should be mounted in the transmission bellhousing. Drivers side on the 6 cylinder and passenger side on the 8 cylinder.

93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Won't start


The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.

Changed battery in 1994 jeep cherokee now engine won't start. Tried resetting alarm by unlocking drivers door and hatch door. Still not starting


Do you know how to check codes on your Jeep? Sometimes the crank position sensor goes out but the Jeep will still run until there is an interruption in power to the ECU. I had a 94 Cherokee do the exact same thing. Turn your key in the following pattern: off-on-off-on-off-on. Leave it on and look at the engine light - it will blink out 2 digit codes. If I remember right code 11 is for the crank sensor...

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis 5.2L V8 will crank but not start.


Fuel delivery is influenced by engine temperature sensor. (sometimes a seperate unit from gauge sensor). Since you did not mention any performance problems after starting or on hot re-starts, that's where I'd look first!
