My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee was doing the exact same thing. The dealership told me the crank sensor had shorted out and caused all of the problems. They replaced it and I am back in business!!! I agree, mine was giving "NO BUS" error on the odometer and the CPS (Crank Position Sensor) was the culprit. Located on the rear of the top lip of the transmission, above the opening for the flywheel. I replaced mine myself, HUGE PAIN....so, I'd recommend having it done...
When you open the hood does the underhood light come on ? If not , it sounds like you have a dead battery or a poor cable connection to the battery
check the battery
Check the battery.
from a dead battery to working battery
You have a ground problem,take it to a good auto electric guy.
Dead battery? Maybe if it makes clicking noise -dead battery
starter, solonoid, ignition, battery. if it clicks when you turn the key then the battery is really dead or its the starter the battery could still be jumped if its the battery.
First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.
This is often from a dead battery.
You can jumpstart your 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo by connecting the battery to a working battery, with jumper cables. Connect the positive post on each battery and the negative posts. The working battery will charge your battery.
The battery is under the front passenger seat. You hook jumper cables to the jump start posts under the hood. You will find a red cable and a grounding stud near it to attach to.
May need to replace the battery.
sounds like a flat battery to me
Your computer reset itself.
You pulled something loose somewhere when you where working on the vehicle or ran the battery down with the doors open and dome lights on all day.
Sounds like a low battery.
its your fuel pump
Cranking amps determine the amount of power that it takes to start a car in most climates. The amount of cranking amps that a battery for a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee has would entirely depend on the type of battery that the vehicle has.
Either a discharged battery or a corroded battery terminal. The battery could be discharged because the alternator isn't working.
Is starter working?
The battery is only a storage device. The alternator replaces the electrical energy that the battery uses every time you start the engine and every time you turn on an electrical device in the car. If the alternator isn't working or isn't working properly, the battery will eventually discharge. Answer if the alternator is in fact working but you have let the battery run empty, simply getting a jump start might not allow the battery to charge sufficiently once you start driving again. you have to charge the battery up a sufficient amount or the battery will just run out again.
battery wont hold a charge..you need a new battery
Typically when you need to jump start your car every time in order to start it, there is a problem with the battery. It could be that the alternator is not working and is not charging the battery, or it could be that the battery is not holding a charge.
It is doing a guage check. Most big trucks and diesels do it. Not seen it in a gasoline engine though.
