My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee keeps cutting off.

Postby dachef72 » Tue May 27, 2008 11:11 am

My Jeep Grand Cherokee keeps shutting off while I'm driving. When I'm on the highway it shuts off suddenly and then as I'm drifting to the shoulder, it jumps back on. If I sit too long at a stop light, it's a wrap. I've changed the IAC as well as the Crankshaft Position Sensor. If anyone's had this problem or has a suggestion, possibly a solution. HELP !!!

initial thought is a faulting out safety sensor of some type... (Only b/c my Cherokee was an electrical night mare)

when it dies is it instant cut out or do you know its about to happen before it dies? i.e. a little sputtering

Any check engine codes?

Question to all: Ignition / coil problem?
