  • 1999 JEEP
I have a 99 JGC that keeps dying while driving. The first time it died, it immediatly restarted, the second time it took a couple mins. So we took it to the jeep dealership. They replaced the crank sensor. Driving it home from the dealership it died again, and wouldn't restart. Any ideas? It sounds like it's out of gas, but isn't. When I try to start it it sounds like it's trying but doesn't start up--the fuel low light, check guages light, and the key light come one, then after a couple seconds the check engine light comes on. Any ideas?

Hi my name is tella.
I also have that problem with my 99.
My 99 will die when ever it wants to for some reason.

It has died going downhill aroud a corner, uphill and waiting for food at wendys, and the middle of a traffic.I have hooked up aa good $$$$ obdII scanner. It does not read anything wrong with my 99.I know this scaner works for I have used it before and it showed me the trouble code.I have kept this hooked up while driving to see if there is any gremlins in my system. This showed nothing.I did notice that if I just sit there and wait for 1-3 min it starts right back up and will go as long as it wants to without dying off 10 miles -126, there is no exact time when it will do this.I have posted? All on the web and so far no response. If you figure it out please let me know and I will do the same. Thank you, Tella

Hi,

We actually did figure out what was wrong with the Jeep. After bringing it into the dealership and them NOT finding anything wrong with it (and of course it wouldn't die for them) they thought that I had a short in the computer. B/C I had under 80,000 miles on my Jeep, Chrystler covered it. If not I think he said the computer is around $800. That was about two months ago, and it's runnin' like a champ now. Hope that helps
