I have exactly the same problem. My car is in its 3rd trip to the jeep dealer. They can't find anything wrong with the sensors. The car stalls at stop signs when the transmission doesn't seem to disengage. It's like forgetting to push in the clutch with a manual transmission when you stop.
The car also stalls on the highway -- just seems to quit. I start to pull over, and pump the gas pedal and it seems to come back to life.
Any luck solving your problem? My dealer installed a new coil and wiring harness, but it didn't seem to help the problem.
Could it be the main computer. Another shop mentioned this, but the jeep shop hasn't.
#1354 of 5134 '97 Jeep GC transmission noise
Jun 09, 2005 (5:51 pm)
My '97 JGC has a transmission noise (sounds like I have studded tires on; but a bit louder) at speeds over 35; when I switch out of overdrive (light comes on on the dash) the noise stops.
I can bring the noise back by pushing the gearshift lever a bit.
#1355 of 5134 95 JGC with stuck defrost fan
Jun 09, 2005 (6:29 pm)
Help...when I turn off the power to the AC/Heater, the defrost fan starts blowing at High speed. This continues even AFTER the car has been turned off and the key has been removed. So far the only way I have been able to stop the fan from blowing is by removing a fuse from the large fuse box under the hood. However, the fuse must be replaced to start the car again, and then the fan will blow non-stop again. If the A/C in used while the car is running, it works properly, but when the power goes off, the defrost blower fan comes on again. Any ideas????

I have a '99 a started having the exact same problems in the last month -- trans not disengaging at stops and coming out of gear and stalling on the highway, only to start back up again when I pump the gas. No idea what is going on. I'm going to contact my dealer and see if they know what it could be. If you figure it out before I do, I appreciate you sharing the diagnosis...I'll do the same.

Hello. I'm having the same problem. Do you suggest changing the relay first. If so where is it located.
#1359 of 5134 1996 Jeep GC, stalling out PLEASE
Jun 10, 2005 (9:46 am)
Front/Rear Oxygen Sensors
Checked Fuel pressure on the rail
changed fuel filter
changed water pump
cleaned out throttle body
checked idle control motor relay it's still in decent working order.
I've heard someting about MAP sensors which have shaken loose of thier contacts and need to be soldered back.
Could the Idle Control Motor be bad and stall the car out only sometimes, and only when coming to a stop, idling, or in park, and twice while driving and letting go of the accelerator.
I've also heard the Vehicle-speed sensor could be the cause of the problem... guys I LOVE MY JEEP, and I've put a lot of money into it, but I never could have imagined it was going to bring me such heartache. Anyone who's fixed this problem please help me. Please let me know, I'm 19, a restaurant manager, Just getting used to adult life, and now this has been the month from H*ll. Please help guys, I need this car for work, everyday. I can't fail, and Miami public transportation has to be the worst in the WORLD.....
PLEASEEEE my mechanic watched my car stalll out on him right in front of him, while in park, and he told me theres nothing wrong with the car, because there is no code on the computer......

Well let me add to the 2005 LGC Tranny problems. I had the shuddering problem 3 days after I leased the truck, took it in for the TSB that stated to flush out the tranny to remove the moisture from inside. PIcked it up the next day, drove it home, had to take it back for the same problem once again. So I have less than 700 miles on it, and already I have gone in twice for the same issue. Completely unacceptable. Now the Service Manager told me they are going to drop the transmission and do a full overhaul on it to ensure all moisture is removed and to perform a thorough eval to make sure nothing else was damaged inside. I already called Chrysler Jeep and reported my issue so that there is a history. I am patiently waiting the outcome, the deal has been great though. They provided a FREE rental car which is the least they can do in my eyes.

I have a 1997 JGC Laredo 4.0, optional 4x4, inline 6, automatic with 120,000 miles and I am having trouble with stalling also.
This is what happens:
1. Put key into ignition and turn to start...starts fine
2. I check the dashboard monitor, no lights, and all gauges are normal (temp just under 210)
3. Apply foot to brake and shift from Park to either Drive or Reverse.
4. Car stalls
Car will remain remain running in Park without problems, but IMMEDIATELY shuts off when I attempt to shift from Park to another gear. I live in Wisconsin and it is 88 degrees today and the vehicle was sitting in the sun. There is a slight coolant leak but the overflow still has coolant. I tried 4 or 5 times with the same result. I then waited 30 minutes and the car started and ran fine. Does anyone know what the problem may be? I called my mechanic and he told me it could just be very overheated from my errands but the temperature gauge was showing normal. Thanks much in advance.
