I just had my fuel pump replaced today, cranks up good now but still stalls when in gear sitting still or shifting into gear. Also im getting a delayed shift in 1st gear? Below is what all i've done so far.
- New fuel pump & strainers
- New (Throttle position sensor)
- New MAP sensor
- Cleaned IACV (Idle air control valve)
- Backed both hex screws about 1/4 off from ECM computer

I sold my 2001 Jeep and I'm glad I did. But before I did I figured out the problem. It's in the computer. There is a short. There are 2 screws that hold the computer to the base thingy. Remove the screws, put a washer on each screw and screw it back in. I think it was a 10mm, it was thin. It keeps the screws from grounding out the computer. Then wrap the computer in plastic 20" zip ties and tighten it down. Once I did this it stopped the crazy dying with no real rhyme or reason. You can go to Dyingjeep.com for a detailed write up on how to do it but it cost $20. It was the best $20 I spent on that Jeep.

Car stops after 2 seconds. Pump is ok, fuses ok, relays ok....any ideas as to what may be the issue? I do see that the security light (yelow light with a key) comes on just as the car stops.
#876 of 1241 2006 Cherokee Stalling out
Sep 21, 2011 (8:27 am)
purchased my 2006 Jeep Cherokee Laredo a month ago with 62k miles on it. Monday it started stalling out completely once when I came to a stop at a stop sign and twice now just shortly after going from reverse to drive. Spent 5 hours at the dealership and they could'nt re-create the problem so no answers from them and of course it happened again today. I commute 30 miles each way to work and would like to feel safe. Anyone else have this problem?? Seems to start back up ok but I'm worried that won't last.

I have a 97 Grand Cherokee doing the same thing ive replaced plugs, wire, cap, rotor, new pcm, fuel pump, cps (crank position sensor), cam position sensor, i replaced all that to find out my distributor it self is bad the magnets on it are worn out allowing oil to interrupt the spark killing try replacing it and i hope that solves your problem.
