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.
#880 of 1241 Stalling Fixes 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, wiring harness question?
Oct 11, 2011 (2:55 pm)
I wanted to share with some of you what I've found over the last year with my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. We were having a problem with it bucking and jerking a lot - but there wasn't any pattern, sometimes it would do it, and sometimes it didn't. It wouldn't throw a code or set off any idiot lights, so my mechanic and I were going crazy trying to figure out what it was. We replaced one of the oxygen sensors, and it stopped for a month, then started again. We finally replaced the other one, and it stopped for good. I hope this helps someone - replace BOTH oxygen sensors at the same time!!!
Also, my dashboard has a habit of going dead and taking my windows with it. (Which sucks when it starts to rain!) When I shut the engine off, all the lights come on and stay on for a few seconds. Then after it sits, dashboard comes back on, but the airbag light stays on for a couple of starts, then it acts normal again for a while. My mechanic says that a lot of Jeeps for a lot of years have had this problem from a wiring harness that is bad. Does anyone know if that's true? He says it costs a fortune to fix, so as long as it's still intermittent, I'll live with it. My Jeep has 104,000 miles on it, and I want to get a few years out of it. I don't drive far, but they are frequent trips.
#881 of 1241 Help 2001 Jeep GC giving me fits
Oct 14, 2011 (12:03 pm)
I'm having a hell of a time with my 2001 JGC. It stalled on me two weeks ago and has not been able to run for more then a min or so since then. I can get it to start and idle for a bit but if I rev it up it will spit and sputter then die. I am gettin multiple random miss fire codes, codes on the cam and crank sensors and also on #1 and #3 coils. I replaced both sensors with no luck, got a coil pack and before istalling it I checked it against my old one with my multi meter and it checked out extactly the same. I replaced it anyway, also with no luck! I checked fuel PSI at the fuel rail ad it was great at 45 psi. figuring that it must be the PCM I orderd one, already flashed (plug and play). Installed it today and nothing!!! Still wont do anything but idle for a while. Anyone have any ideas that I have not thought of? Only thing I can think of is maybe I got a bad cam sensor from the parts store. Thanks for any help.

I wanted to email you as this reply won't help any other reader. Did you find out what was causing your issue? I'm having identical symptoms to you.
