I have a straight six 1997 grand Cherokee. I had faced this before which like a lot of you was to the point of shooting it or myself. I changed batteries, sensors, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, cleaned TB, added sea foam. Still same shift different day! So frustrating! So I just held my foot on gas an breaks to remedy it. It got me by day to day. Then one day my radiator started to leak! I was about to set it a fire!! But my father in law bought me a new one. Would you believe it! All my idle and dying issues went away?!?! So after reading a lot of the post I seen here. I'm guessing that the computer near passenger fire wall is in fact the culprit as some have found. My guess is that JEEP chose the wrong location for it since so many of "Us Jeep owners" have came across this same problem. Oh and someone mentioned a temp sensor! Would hurt to check them both and see what happens! I would love to know if anyone else tries out my solution and reply if it works or not so that we can spread the cure of the "Idle From The UNKOWN!!"
-Happy Wrenching Guys!!
#1071 of 1241 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks but wont start issue
Jun 26, 2013 (5:19 am)
I am curious, is anyone aware of an issue like this. Here's the scenario. Get into my 2011 Jeep GC with key fob in pocket, hit the start button and it cranks but will not start. It will sometimes do this several times in a row which seems to result in flooding then it will not run once it does start. Sometimes it only does it once, you hit the button again to stop the cranking then hit it again and it takes right off running. 45000 miles, so out of warranty and of course Dealer says bring it in an we will SOAK you for cash...... I have been told possibly the "crank sensor". Any advise at all would be greatly appreciated.

I am having the exact same issue. Finally didn't start for 2 full days. At the dealership now and they told me that it is either the Primary Fuel Pump or both the primary and secondary fuel pump - $1,600.
I have seen other posts concerning this where people just pulled a fuse, some said it was a fuel sensor, some said to reset the computer - all sound cheaper than $1,600
If anyone has had success fixing this problem, please let me know. Thanks!!

I don't know if 2011 is same issue as my 1999. On at least the 1999 thru mid 2000's there is a crank position sensor on bottom of transmission, when it goes bad it will not send a signal that lets vehicle start, and it will only crank. It was very hard to reach and I took it to a good NON DEALER shop and let them do the work, in 2009 was about $200 including labor. Don't know if 2011 has this, but when I google 2011 jeep grand Cherokee crankshaft position sensor, it comes up as there is one, don't know if it is still in a hard to get at location.

2011 Jeep GC Limited with 48,600 miles won't start. Out of Jeep warranty and now under the Zurich 84 months/100,000 mile bumper to bumper I purchased at closing with dealer. I'm told I need a new TIPM and will cost $1,300; Zurich "preferred coverage" states they cover the "electronic ignition system" but they tell me they won't cover the brain that powers the system. I am still fighting with them and filing small claims court papers in Camden County, NJ.
TIPM won't come in until August 22nd so they approved a rental car. At Enterprise Rental for shits and giggles I said hey, you got a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee I could have and he said yes except it is back at the same Cherry Hill Triplex Service department because it won't start. What is going on here, everyone please post your no start problems, I believe there is a cover up going on and Chrysler needs to man up and do the right thing for us.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 48,600 miles and same exact problem! Once it started it would go all day with many start stops but once it sat for several hours i was stuck, no start without numerous 5-8 push button start/stop episodes before she turned over, this method cost me all 4 of my AAA tows / battery truck service calls. Towed to dealer and told it needs a new Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) and cost estimate is $1,300. I bought the "preferred coverage" extended 84 months/ 100,000 mile extended service contract from Zurich which was offered by the dealer for $2,214.00 extra. They state they cover the "electronic ignition system" but they won't cover the $1,300.00 TIPM. That's another fight which is also being posted online with Edmunds.com; carcomplaints.com; ripoffreport.com and facebook.
TIPM is on back order until August 22, 2013 so Chrylser approved a rental car. At Enterprise Rental I asked If they had a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee I could have and to my surprise they said Yes except it was back at the same dealership; Cherry Hill Triplex because it won't start! Same exact problem, what is going on here? Search the internet and I find too many same related issues, Chrysler must know they have a problem on their hands and are not doing the right thing by us loyal owners, this is my 5th Grand Cherokee and I always loved them, I just never owned them this long, I was lusting after the 2014 SRT with that Launch button but now I'm rethinking everything. This story is still live and I will continue to update it, Please everyone post your no start problems, there could be something much more worse than we know. jmelvilletristatehvac.com

Having the same issue now. 2011 Grand Laredo. Roughly 58,000 miles on it, purchased from Franklin Sussex Auto mall with about 19,000 miles on it. The issue started with all my remotes not working properly, wont open or lock the truck, had to get up close and press the button on the door handle. In the past month, i would start the truck, put it in reverse and it would immediately turn off, all power gone. This has happened a couple of times. Most recently, among this, im having the same "crank" issue. Start the truck, sounds like its idling in the "ignition" stage but wont actually kick over for me. Scary stuff, god forbid something like this happens while im on the highway. Going to call the dealer and see whats up.
