My 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo has started a stalling problem. It occurs after a period of time. Check engine light comes on, starts a "skipping type process" then reduces speed. If the car is not stopped, it eventually shuts down. I have been in "chat rooms" with Jeep owners and getting advice from a number of sources. I noticed that a lot of Jeep owners are having this problem. I have had diagnostic checks ran and so far replaced, fuel pump assembly, fuel filter, some type sensor, some type relay, spark plugs and ignition coil. I even loosen the bolts on the fuse box as suggested by one owner in a "chat room". None of these corrected my problem. Any other suggestions anyone?

I saw one reply that it was the PCM. May I ask, what is the "PCM"? I guess you can tell I am a female...

Hey im a female too had the same prob with our grand cherokee. The pcm is the power control module basically the computer of the vehicle. We had it fixed, it cost almost 900 but it runs perfect now. It took us a long time to fig out what was wrong because they cldnt get a code when they ran diagnostics. It took 5 mos to fig it out and lots of parts and money before finding out it was the pcm. Find someone u can trust to find out if u r hvg the same prob. Hope it wrx out for u.

So happy to find this site. I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It started out with my electrical windows not working and then my ac wouldn't blow thru the vents and then yesterday going home my dashboard lit up and everything went haywire, the windows wouldn't work unless I hit the driver's side door with my arm and the windows would work but then the dashboard went crazy, speedometer went to zero, gauges went crazy. It was very scary as I travel on the I-10 and am a little ways from my home. Please help me in any way you can!!

Hi! I just want to say I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that we bought used, are still paying on, and I think its a piece of CRAP!! Since the very beginning we have had electrical problems starting with the radio. You have to hit clock in order to get the radio to work. Then it began going off like a Christmas tree. I will be driving along, I will have shifting problems, dash lights all blinking and going crazy, ac blower turning on and off, headlights and rear lights blinking like crazy (this makes me feel really safe on the highway at night), gauges going crazy up and down and turning off. I WILL NEVER AGAIN PURCHASE A CHRYSLER PRODUCT IN THIS LIFE TIME!!! I do have to ask if every one is complaining of the same issues then why have they not been forced to be accountable and have a recall???

I feel your pain. The first day I drove of the lot my radio stopped playing. No need to tell u my story. Everything u mentioned are the exact same problems I'm having. Light flickering night. I'm surprised someone hasent gotten out of their car to curse me out thinking I'm flashing them. Its falling apart. I have a 06 with 77 thousand miles. And from this start its gone while. The first 6 months of having it. It was in the shop 5 times. BUT!! The dealing camt even tell u what's wrong. So sad. I love my jeep. But never ever will I purchase another one.

Like I have said to many others on this forum. it is the electrical harnesses. Period. The harness defects tend to also burn out control modules.

What is the electrical harness? And is it expensive to fix. I was told I needed a new computer for the car. Is this what ur referring to?
