#4223 of 5142 Fuel sensor?
Aug 14, 2008 (10:12 pm)
Is there a fuel sensor on a 4.0L 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?
Occasionally when I turn the car on, the fuel gauge will read Empty and it will give me the ding to signal that it's time to fill up. The problem is, there is definitely some gas in the car, and generally if you turn the car off, and turn it back on, it will give you the correct reading about how much gas is left.
I've just changed the oxygen sensor, the throttle position sensor, the Idle air control valve, and the ECM for a multitude of different problems(stalling), so it shouldn't be any of these parts.
What could the problem be?

My jeep is a 97. The fuses should be listed inside your owner's manual and there should be a fuse for this function. I believe the fuse is for all power window/door lock modules. You will have to double check.
Assuming I am right, blown fuse cannot be reason because passenger door works. There is a microprocessor based control module inside your driver door. My recollection is that it cannot be repaired. It has to be replaced as an assembly. This type of part is typically available at a salvage yard local or on the Internet.
If you work on it yourself, be carefull when you disconnect the wiring harness. The connector will probably be difficult and if you pull on the wires you may damage the connector. Rubber gloves might make it easier to pull on it with your fingers and disconnect (-) of the battery before you work on it.
#4226 of 5142 Jeep Won't start

My jeep was running fine on Saturday but yesterday when I went to drive it it wouldn't start. The motor tries to turn over but it won't ignite. Now of the gauges are working either. Hooked it to a battery charger and it still will not start any ideas?
#4227 of 5142 Security System on 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Aug 20, 2008 (6:48 am)
My kids entered my car thru the tailgate. They unlocked the doors from the inside and the alarm went off. This has happened before, and I did what the manual said, use the key on the driverside door to open and the alarm went off. This time, that didn't happen. What do I do. I don't have a remote start, just the key. Please please help. Thanks!

Try putting the key back in the door and turning it back and forth twice (or more).

I have had this happen and once you open the door insert the key in the ignition and turn it on. Do not have to start it.

I have the same issue with no remote too... I just open the door & start the truck... That usually does it. +<:?)

I tried a few things that I read online and nothing seems to work. The security light stays on but the engine won't stay on. I guess I'll have it towed to my mechanic down the street. Bummer though, car maintenance wasn't in my budget this month!. Oh well.
