Jeep starting problem and shutoff help

Asked by Jul 20, 2017 at 11:20 AM about the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: General

I have a 96 jeep grand cherokee limited 4.0 4x4 and
i have been completely satisfied with my purchase
no problems what so ever except sonething is
drawing power. So instead of tracking the source I
just unplug the posi terminal on my battery.
However I am not here for that I just wanted to
provide that info in case it can help with diagnoses
of my question. Here it is I got into my jeep one
morning and i went to crank it it sputtered a bit but
i did crank and shut right off. After that it wouldnt
not crank but it was turning over. I tried a few more
times and no luck. So i called a buddy and went to
my job with him and came home and tried again
still no luck. Went to sleep woke up and tried this
morning and after a few tries she fired up and was
driveable i drove around the block a couple of
times came back and (I) TURNED HER OFF
MYSELF  well after that there was no response bo
pinger no cluster no power basically unhooked the
positive cable and hooked it back up and
everything was normal and it fired right up. Havnt
tried anything since no attempts to crank it or work
on it or nothing ?
