Jeep Grand Cherokee - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Check the battery, it sounds like it's flat. Try charging the battery to see if it recovers, but if the battery is about 3 years old or more it is likely to have failed and replacement is the only viable solution.

possible that the ball size is wrong for the tow hitches
they do come in two sizes and there is just enough difference to allow movement at the ball

How old is the battery? Older ones can get weaker over the years when they are under strain. Especially on a big V8. Go to a battery specialist and they can test it 'under load' to see if it's strong enough.
When you turn the key does it catch, miss and die or does it just wind? Does it idle roughly once started? Please use the 'Comment' button below with the answers if you can
Try putting a dose of good quality injector cleaner through it. Put the cleaner in and just let the vehicle idle for 10 minutes. That way you get a stronger cleaning mixture going through the injectors.

When it don't want to start have a friend hit the gas tank while you try to start it, if it starts then it's your fuel pump

Most of that is not scheduled maintenance items. I would have your fuel filter replaced, if not done yet, it should be done every 20,000 miles. Alot of these places get a small commission for selling added services. I would go by the maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

If I may suggest, you may want to check the ignition coil or check your fuel pump. the most likely cause is that you have a bad pump, and it stopped working....causing you to only use the fuel in the lines and then the engine shuts off due to lack of fuel supply. have someone get close to the gas tank and listen for the fuel pump to cut on. Beforehand, it may be wise to check the fueses and relays for the pump.

It doesn't have a serviceable filter. It only has one in the tank on the bottom of the fuel pump.

Have the fuel pressure checked next time it does this. You may have a failing fuel pump.

2005 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019

I am confused by what you said but I will take a shot anyways check your fuel pump. after it dies dont mess with key but chech to see if you lost fuel pressure with a fuel gauge

The most common cause of this problem is that the gas gage sending unit that senses the fuel level is defective, it is an open circuit. The sending unit is part of the fuel pump module and all comes as one part. To replace the fuel pump module you must drop the fuel tank out of the truck.

Very likely a fuel pump and filter problem.
Change the pump which has an integrated filter.
Use only Delphi (original equipment) or Bosch or VDO pumps. Do not use chinese scrap pumps or Carquest pumps. All junk. See video.

Jeep has a service recall for this problem. They did a bad software update to these jeeps and its causing people problems. Go to the dealer and get it serviced for free under this recall. Do not let them do any other work to it. This is a well documented problem. Any other extras are just them trying to shaft you.

Replace the stereo in the Jeep.
Aftermarket or factory your choice.
There is no way to self resolve this problem...
And any junk yard stereo you buy will need an activation code. Just buy a good Pioneer or Kenwood stereo and install it. Problem solved. No more BS

Bad solder joints.
Have someone examine the module and check for cracks and bad solder joints.
After repairs please spray exposed circuit board with conformal coating to seal and protect it.
Problem should go away.

The skim module under the steering column is not sending the transponder code from your key to the engine computer. There are a couple of possible fixes...
Replace the faulty skim module and have the keys resynced with the vehicle. (expensive dealer) or...
You can remove the skim module, Order a new rebuilt engine computer, the ECM, and install it. Do not install the SKIM back in the car. The ECM should be programmed with your vin number from the rebuilder (many good ones online and on ebay) and install it in the car. Start with your key. The Security light will flash and eventually go out. Sometimes the security light does not go out but the car will continue to run normally. Send back your old computer. Problem solved permanently. You will no longer need a transponder key to start your car.
YOu can use all the dummy keys you can buy in walmart.
You will dance and sing FREE FREE from the chains of $200 dollar keys LOL.
