    have u tested the system for trouble codes? the PCM is the last thing that would cause this problem.

    I have a 97 jeep cherokee and i need to get a pcm

    I'm looking for one at the junkyard but they have none for a 97 so do any from 96-2001 interchange like maby 96 or 98

I don't think the PCM is your problem, is the check engine light on? It could be you idle air control motor this is located on the throttle body, but because this happens while driving I am thinking you will need to replace your crank shaft position sensor it is located on the transmissinon bell housing it is very hard to replace without the correct tools. If the check engine light is on take it to a local auto parts store and ask if they can check the check engine codes for you they usally will do this for free.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl with 230,000 miles. Suddenly it when I drive it it, when I start it to drive it drives for about 1 minute, then it starts missing, and sputtering.


the pcm is on the passenger side of the firewall. there are 3 plugs going into it. start the jeep and let it idle. than wiggle each of the 3 connectors one at a time. does it stall out? yes you need a pcm. solder joints inside are broken.

THE PCM MODULE.
no country stated, the 728ad shows Europe. (why?)
"I found"

where, at ebay, at pick-apart, or ?
USA cars have 11 PCM for one engine. fact.
and 100s more world wide.
what a question, just a p/n
then you post to grand Cherokee and then text leaving out Grand.?
why?
i searched the part at jeep and is wrangle part, 629ad.

you do know that it must be reprogrammed to your car right:?
the pcms on cars can vary
by engine, trans opted , 4wd/2wd,and year.
federal PCM
Calif PCM
and mexico PCM
and 9 more. just for 1999

is yours 42RE for 45RFE?? tranny??? 30/32 RH? what?
post county (or state if calif)
post engine and year
post body and not contradict.?
post drive line, in car, tranny and if 4wd?
then we can match it up
or call jeep.com

they (jeep) will do this magical thing!
ask you the VIN.
and then look it up in their database.
and see ALL THE ABOVE even what radio is in it. of 5.
me, im a glass half full guy (hard knocks, reality stuff)
id not even believe the part in car is correct.
im too SAVVY !
i find out from jeep what it should have first.

not one matches the 4.0L in the GC.


the 629 posted shows this at jeep.com

What are the symptoms of a speed sensor going bad on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl.


Since alot of things rely on data from the speed sensor you will "usually" get an ABS alarm, little or no shifting,no indication of speed on the speedometer, and the check engine light. without the abs light and with a speed indicated I would lean toward a transmission problem

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. While driving, I can feel hesitation in the gas peddle. Starving for fuel. I put on the brake at a stop light and the vehicle dies. Next either it will start immediately...


while its idling try wiggling the three large wires going into the pcm. if it stalls you need a pcm because inside solder joints are broken. common problem

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee with automatic and 4.0 six cyl engine--it drives great for a day or two then stalls out seemingly for no reason--now tonight it has no spark from the coil--so I feel it is...


Unlikely that it's a computer. Check your coil and the grounds, make sure you don't have any breaks in the wires that could cause an intermittent problem.

04 Jeep starts but stalls when put into gear.


make sure your idle air control motor is working, if you give and hold gas pedal a little will it stay running in drive.

97 Jeep grand cherokee 6 cyl. idles down to 0 and dies.


any leaks in intake or exhaust upstream of the sensors, sparkplug condition and engine controls/sensors for out of range operation (including fuel pressure and condition of regulator)
IAC should be cleaned and checked as this can cause poor idle and shut down. I'm not saying not to change O2 sensors, but unless everything else if OK, it probably won't help.

1996 Jeep GC stalling with no warning when driving


my 96 grand cherokee had the same problem with stalling minus the clock reseting part. what fixed mine was an idle air control motor it sits at the back of the throttle body on top of the motor. the part cost about 60 bucks and it hasn't stalled out on me since. i hope this helps you out.
