#1270 of 5143 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee(Stalling out)
May 25, 2005 (5:25 am)
I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0, 6-cylinder
The Jeep will start up fine at first. I then drive it down the road about a mile or so and when I come to a stop sign, or I stop, the vehicle STALLS OUT. I then have to press the gas pedal to the floor to get it to start. When it is restarted, I have to hold my foot on the gas a little bit to keep it running, if i let off the gas it will stall out again. After it stalls, if I let it sit for a little bit, it will again start up and sit at an idle fine, until I drive it down the road a mile or two, and the same problem occurs.
Thank you for any help

After the dealer flushed and reprogram the computer. Does the problem persisted? I have the same problem and the dealer told me it's the manufacture problem and it's the first year intro.

Mine is still at the dealer for the hesitation problem. Let us know please if anyone gets it cured, and will post if mine gets cured. I wish someone from Chrysler would see these posts and reply with some sort of explanation. They spend millions on advertising. They need to spend some to keep us owners happy.

Have you recently put in a new head unit...I did and I am experiencing the exact same problems...I suggest checking your head unit... There are two wires that go into the left side of the stock head unit and if the wires are touching the car will run for two seconds and then shut off... right now my car is running fine ... now i just need to fix the guages on it ... I let you know when i fix it
#1275 of 5143 ELECTRICAL GHOST IN A 96 GRAND CHEROKEE
May 26, 2005 (6:28 am)
I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee 4.0 4x4 with 165,000 miles on it. I recently discovered that on long road trips there is an inherint electrical problem. We went on a road trip from Texas to Colorado. When we reached colorado, driving straight through I noticed that only the drivers side front and rear power locks and windows were functioning, and the key fob for the power locks was not functioning. I checked fuses and relays and found nothing wrong. It sat for a day and began to work the next, we drove around a bit and all of a sudden the locks unlocked, and locked several times while driving. Then all the gages went dead and the air bag light came on then the gages started working again. It did this the whole time we were in colorado, intermittantly. When we got back to Texas, the problem stopped. 2 months later, we went on a trip to the coast, about 3 hours away. No problems on the way down, on the way back, the locks started locking and unlocking again, and the prob with the power locks and windows were back. Whatever is malfunctioning, it only does it on long road trips, anyone have any ideas what to check?

The car is very clean and drives nice. I read before some problems with the rotors and they seem to be OK. Is this a good buy or am I going to start running into problems and have to dish out more money to keep it running. Thanks.

#1279 of 5143 Deperate: Engine light coming on and Jeep looses alittle power
May 26, 2005 (2:18 pm)
I have a 98 jeep cherokee, In the pass 2 weeks my engine light has came on continously.... I put oil in it going on some advice and it was fine. Today, I had the same problem and a small change in driving performance, like hesitation....
I went to autozone to get diagnostic and my alpha p codes were 463, 700, and 753. The first code referenced fuel level sending unit defective, check connector & wiring. Their book did not go up into the 700s. Can anyone help? One was the pcm has received a signal to turn on the malfunction indicator lamp from the transmission control system(refer to transmission repair manual. The other said the pcm has detected a short to ground, a short to battery, or an open circuit condition in the electrical circuit for shift solenoid "a". Please advise me..
