Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee
My daughter's 96 Jeep Cherokee will not start. It turns over, but will not start. Gauges don't work, all lights, radio, blowers will work. Had the ECU replaced..... this is costing me a fortune! WHAT could be wrong????
I just had the same exact problems as zeeladys. It was the crank sensor shorting out and causing the short to shut down circuits in the pcm, volt gauge, fuel gauge, no spark. Locate the connector to the crank sensor, it runs beside the distributor, with the key to the on position unplug the connector and see if the gauges come back on. If so, simply replace the crank sensor and ur off and running

Hi there Zeeladys,
We could go over all sorts of 'what if' scenarios, but who has the time?
Why don't we get the Jeep to tell us what's wrong?
Your Jeep has on board diagnostics that can help locate problems it is having. These diagnostics are normally accessed by a 'Code Reader' that you can buy for $60.00 to $100.00 and use once. OR.... you can do it manually, which will only cost you about ten minutes of your time. Here's how.
First off, what to expect:
Don't worry, I'll get you back on the road.

I had the same problem , I asked my brother in law ( a ASE certified mechanic ) , he informed me that the crank sensor is usually the culprit. a trip to auto zone and $66.85 later I was home replacing the unit. One clip to the wiring harness and 2 bolts to the bell housing and I was done. about 15 minutes . she started right up and has been running like new. all I can say is ( it worked for me ! )

May be you should check the injektors power cables and ,also check the spark plugs cables
