Before you invest in a new battery---disconnect the negative cable first the positive cable secondly---clean the batt posts and the inside of the cable ends till they are bright. R econnect the pos--then the negative to the batt. Get in the vehicle--put foot on brake and hold--Turn the ignition switch on-off, on-off, on-off. release the brake and start engine.This has worked for me on a 99--4.0 L engine.

did you ever figure out the problem with the intermittent stalling ?
I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited, and I am having the same problem..
Any suggestions ???
I have replaced the battery, the Distributor Cap, rotor and the pick-up coil. It ran fine for 1 weeks, not one single problem. Then one night about 5 miles from home pulled up to stop light and the jeep just died. Ever since then the problem has gotten worse to now we can't drive it at all.
Any suggestions ???

Try the coil pack and spark plugs? is the engine souding ok? does it miss fire? my problem with the jeep was to do with a switch on the driver side window. Once this was fixed, the car worked fine. Do you have other problems?

I have a 2003 4.7 jepp grand Cherokee with a 601 error. The Jeep runs fine. I replaced the ecu and the new one, after being reset, started one time then develope the same 601 error. After all resets it last only one start. The jeep has has been running fine, with this error, for a year. It acts like there is a virous that keeps reinfecting the ECU.
