Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Jeep keeps dieing intermittently, sometime while running and sometimes while stopped at lights. Try to turn it on and will get a clicking sound. After about 5-10 minutes it will start back up. Had it to a mechanic and they couldn't find anything, replaced the cable harness but it didn't fix the problem. Any ideas? Our Grand Cherokee is doing very similar, it will quit a highway speeds, in town, at traffic lights, sometimes it will restart or we have it towed to the garage and it starts up the next day. The diagnostics show absolutely nothing. It has been on the back of a tow truck more than on the road. Help!!!!

It sure sounds like a starter solenoid issue, they act just like that, had exactly the same concern on my car, no crank just clicks under hood, new starter solenoid contacts cured the problem. I don't know if your solenoid is rebuild-able or not, I think it is a Japanese starter so most likely it is.

1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo just stops while driving


Does it stall at idle or going down the highway? Does it restart right away? How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Check the cam and crank sensor. Could be other issues?

Sometimes the oil drive housing can cause a sync problem between the crank and cam sensors?

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo turns off suddenly when stopped, and sometimes kicks when running. I'm wondering if it has to do with the fuel filter.


On my dodge truck, it was the throttle position sensor that went bad. It is located on the side of the throttle body. $50 for a new one, or $100 to have a shop do it.

My 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo will not start.


cj2176 is correct, we need a lttle more info. Sounds like it will need a new fuel pump or something related to it. Since it starts on starting fluid it has compression and air and spark, just no fuel. Fuel pumps can just stop working while driving, and if not working obviously will not start. No caodes will be set for a fuel pump not working. If it cranks but does not start have someone pound on the bottom of the fuel tank with a fist or small rubber mallet lightly (don't damage the tamk) while your cranking the engine. If it starts, the fuel pump module in the tank is bad.

I had a problem with my Jeep doing the same thing. It turned out to be the Crank shaft senor. It would just turn off even on the highway at 60mph.
If you can change it yourself you will save a lot of money.
