My 1999 grand Cherokee Dies randomly after running a bit and will not restart


Asked by Sep 07, 2013 at 12:52 AM about the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Jeep will run fine but all of a sudden it will die and just turn over gauges will not come
back either. shut it down let it sit and it will re start and run fine again. It is totally random
sometimes it will only run 5 minutes and others a week or so. It is now idling rough and
hard to start. no codes are showing and many sensors have been replaced to no help. I
am at a loss as I have had 2 different mechanics work on it and still no soultion.

1 Answer


My Grand Cherokee did this and it ended up being the crank shaft sensor
