Asked by Apr 09, 2013 at 09:18 PM about the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started vehicle, engine started for about a second and just shut down. Attempted 3 more times, where the last time when attempted a start, there was nothing, zero, nadda. Battery is 7 months old, thought it might be something electric, alternator, not sure. Had a wrecker come for towing via insurance, he had a portable battery pack, hooked up, nothing. The maintenance called me after receiving vehicle and said ,maybe fuel pump???  I mean there's no start, does not sound like a no0-fule issue....Thoughts??

The mx tech troubleshooting ended up with a "reboot" of the ECM, and all was well.. $86.00. When it comes to electrical (as he stated), "you just, never know" and he also stated that when it comes to electrical problems, "Chrysler is the worse". In my experience, As a comparison, I have had to replace the 4x4 computer (under the back seat) and this recent incident, since 2005 and 172,000 miles (rounded down).
