so i just boght a 1996 jeep grand cherokee straight 6 4.0L, it starts fine but about 15-20 minutes into me driving it, it shuts off, i try to start it it cranks but wont start, and it only seems to do it when i stop, i let it sit for a couple minutes and it starts fine, but then a couple miutes later it shts off again, its not showing any check engine lights or anything. i just change the radio in it and thats when i started haveing problems, i doubt the radio is the problem, it seems like just coinsondence, also the belt is kind of squeaking when i start it, and my brake pedal is raise more at some points more then others. ive read alot about it being the ECM and i dont want to replace it and find out that it wasnt the problem, if any one has had the same problem could you please tell me how to fix it, im not the greatest when it comes to cars.

Could be a few things:
Crankshaft Position Sensor
Intermittent Fuel Pump
Intermittent Fuel Pump Relay
Intermittent ASD Relay

Most definitely try the Crank sensor. What you have described is exactly what my 96 did. I replaced the sensor and it has been fine since. Besides its a lot cheaper than a ECM.

Hey. My jeep doesnt have a anti theft system. Not that I know of. I used the key everyday to open the driver door and start it before the issues. I dont know what else to do.
#957 of 1241 A/C condensor noise????
Jan 11, 2012 (10:36 am)
Hi, my first post here! Yesterday as I was filling up the tank with gas, I got in the 96' Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited I have, turned on the ignition to check the fuel gauge as it was filling up and heard a strange whirring noise under the hood. It freaked me out! I turned off the ignition, opened the hood and a guy at the gas station said it was the A/C condensor motor recharging. Does that make sense?? With the key off?? I finished filling up the tank. Drove a few miles to my house, and the noise was gone. It hasn't come on since. I am not used to newer vehicles. Everything I have owned was from the 50's! Those cars never made strange noises like the newer ones do! Any ideas what this might have been? It was coming from the driver's side and sounded like it was coming from the condensor. I also have a flickering dash/radio/overhead console problem which is very annoying!! If I push under the dash or on the light switch, the lights are brighter and don't flicker. Thanks for any help! I just bought this thing a month ago to replace my 56' Mercury station wagon and it's just not the same!
