2005 Grande Cherokee, V8 Hemi, Limited, started but engine immediately shuts down.
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??
Did you runner outa gas?
Ya, that's some real troubleshooting there people...half a tank fuel my man.,.read the factors again...I will post the resultant diagnosis received by mx tech.
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).
