If you leave your ignition key in the normal running position and then slip underneath your car from the rear of the passenger's side front tire, you can slide forward to see the starter and it's solenoid on it's backside. If you take a screwdriver and short between the smaller, center screw on the solenoid and the upper, larger screw (or bolt) you should get a spark and the sound of the starter motor cranking over the engine. Explanation: The solenoid tends to get sticky after a while and becomes reluctant to go back to it's "at rest" position. After driving the car awhile it normally falls back into place.

2003 jeep cherokee laredo still sputters and dies!


It could do that with a bad switch if it was making poor contact before it disconnects, but that really sounds a lot like the fuel pump is going bad...they overheat and start to bind up, then stop...once cooled down they work just fine till it again gets hot enough to do the same thing all over again. I really hate doing this online because in real life, I'd be doing tons of testing instead of making "educated guesses"

It's probably one of these:

1.NSS- (Neutral Safety Switch)
2.CPS- (Crankshaft Position Sensor)
