No start condition

Asked by Sep 28, 2010 at 01:20 PM about the 1988 Jeep Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes my Jeep won't start.  This happens rarely.  If I disconnect the battery cable, wait 10 seconds and re-connect it starts.  I replaced all senors at 250,000 miles.  I have since replaced most of the sensors including the engine computer and distributor. Like I said, this no start doesn't happen often. I'm suspecting the crank sensor and am thinking of elongating the holes as to position the senor closer to the flywheel.  Anyone else run into this condition?

Just replace the crank sensor... Don't modify anything...

Okay, I will not modify anything and replace the sensor. Thanks again. Neal
