Check battery condition and connections (dirt, corrosion, tightness, acid level) to start with.

ill guess you mean it cranks perfectly and will not start.
or same but runs for 3 seconds and stalls.
is the ASD relay closing? cranked?
or closes cranking as it should. but drops out mid cranking?
well if it drops out , that means the ECU saw a failure.

up to 8 reasons, all seen with any scan tool (obd2, jeep)


each of the 8 ways (upto) can be seen and then check that cause.
lets say the CMP is dead, so you get code 54?

if luckly this can work, (weak methods)
Key trick is (On/off/On/off/On/ ) see CEL (MIL) flash 2 digit codes now...
but that key off , can erase codes !!!!!!!!!! case in point spark lost.

Did u try unlocking the passenger door with the key?these are very common for the drivers switch goin bad

1995 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Apr 22, 2015 | 296 views

On your question.
Put the KEY in the Passanger door lock cylinder and turn.
If stop Flash will start ok.
If Not Do de same in the Rear Gate door.
It will deactivate the Factory Alarm.

I hope this help on your question.

since the computer is only supposed to send fuel and spark signals in reaction to input info, unless a wire in the harness is either grounding or crossing into an output wire, i'd think it's safe to assume the computer is doing that internally. Another reason is that if it were a wiring problem, pretty likely it would not run well after you did get it started.
The only thing I'd do aside from replacing the computer is to unplug all the sensors one by one while it is acting up, to get an idea about wether the errant signal is coming from a sensor or internally.
Likely you can get another computer from a scrapyard.for lots less than a new one. Since this is a "guess" repair, you may want to try that.

by the remote from dealer or disconnect the battery for about 20 minutes to let computer to reset itself

You have a mess on your hands .If you ever want to store any kind of gas engine you need to put fuel stabelazer in the gas and run it for for some time at high speed conduitions as well as low speed before you walk away from it .
The best advice I can give is remove the air cleaner get it all off the top of the engine.Take some HI test gas poor an ounce or 2 the engine see if you can get it running and keep it running for 30 sec if you can get that out of it .It WILL WORK .
Then do a complete tune up all wires cap rotor pcv plugs check belts the hoses belt tenisioners radiator antifreeze engine oil transmission oil keep pouring gas down the bearral then start with the carb cleaner and injector cleaner if it runs for any extended time.Your not supposed to do things like this to engines if you expect them to run.

is this as spindle
or the front prop shaft.
why not read all steps in the FSM for this car.
posted like 200 times now, ever search?

jeep, zj, post 201

click diffs here.

2nd page shows prop shafts.
then ask questions not clear there.
or at alldata.com
or at real FSM page here.


FSM means real OEM factory service manual.

If there is no power going to the sensor, it could be a wiring or computer issue, the computer could be sending an actual problem or the sensor could be faulty and therefore disabled. Try unplugging your battery for about 15 minutes and then trying again, this will clear the computers codes. If that works however, you probably will need to replace the sensor as the issue will most likely return.

6 posts now.
and why not read the long post answering all that.
that is limp home mode,
the trans in your car has a TCM (tranny brain computer) that
does all shifting for you.
and if its unhappy it goes to limphome.
like all computers, if the inputs are wrong so will be outputs (shift solenoids)

what you do is get the TCM scanned.
Transmission control module.

why not stick to 1 post and add to just one post. add facts
or ask specific questions to this.
and is 2 problems , (front axle is not related to trans if in 2wd)

1995 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Mar 24, 2015 | 356 views

still won't shift The word button , tips hand that it is a automatic trans,
but not which one. they had 2 that year, 42/44re and
the AW4 box, has a TCM (tranny brain.)
and all tranny brains go to limphome mode, (skipping or freezing 2nd) if inputs are WRONG.
the TCM can be scanned, to see why, skipping this step misses the boat,

I have the 1995 FSM book. chapter 21.
42 or 44RE trans? is that yours. the tag on side tells you what it is. look for the tag, and learn what car run for a drive-line.

see" trans... opt" here. ZJ

page 21-45 is diagnosis page, in the FSM book.
ON car service, and step 2 is scan it. (step one is fuses. levels)
ever consider read this book on this car and this trans?

here is the non tool way,

i use a Innova 3140 , tool that does jeep 1993-95, OBD1
i have not tried, to see if it will log a trans DTC;s
using a real scan tool , helps greatly to see all TCM codes.
most TCM can do 10 error code, all very revealing.

make sure the transmission is grounded, with a good ground strap
seen people replace trans 3 times, then do strap last. sad.

Trans issues are many
(ill skip bad trans)
  1. wiring bad, from TCM to trans, or from TCM to all sensors. to it.
  2. bad TCM
  3. lost power 12vdc to TCM for any reasons.
  4. lost ground to trans or TCM.

a scan tool that can scan this back in 1995 was the DRB-ii

On the throttle. Under the hood, you will see the air filter plenum going to the throttle. On the throttle you will see cables coming from the firewall connecting to the throttle linkage. Just opposite of that linkage is the throttle position sensor(TPS). two screws/bolts hold it on.

The blower motor is under the passenger side of the dashboard, and they are prone to problems from the electrical connectors being damaged from people kicking them, not intentionally, it's just in a place where there is no protection. Check all the fuses first, then with a flashlight, look under the dash at the blower motor resistor connector and motor connector. If it all looks ok, use a tester to check for voltage at the resistor, and at the motor. If there is power to the resistor, but not the motor, replace the resistor pack

Sounds like the classic IAC motor, when these start failing they will not turn on the engine light. These give you a start stall symptom.

Anything I tell you is going to be a guess, since there has been no testing done, and we don't have the model number of the specific radio involved. However...
For a 20 year old radio, the volume and balance is almost certainly controlled by a potentiometer that has input into one leg of the fixed resistance, and the other leg (of the fixed resistance) is grounded. The movable center tap is the output to the amplifier - and its position controls the volume to that channel. If the ground leg becomes disconnected (broken wire, or a cold solder joint, or even a break in the resistor within the body of the potentiometer) then instead of "dividing" the volume, it simply provides a slight resistance inline - short answer: It goes full volume.
You can try running the control full range back and forth, and even just the old time "slap it" approach, to see if you get any static or change. If you do, that pretty well confirms the diagnosis. [If not, it just means the break is not close to touching - still almost certainly the right answer though.]
Only fix is going to be disassembly. You then may be able to find the break (and resolder it), and/or replace the volume potentiometer. Note that if you have remote volume/balance control (controls on the steering wheel), then there is some extra wiring that can likewise be involved. jk

  1. bad radio amp
  2. bad wiring to speakers.
  3. or bad speakers.
the tests are easy, ask.
my guess is the weak side is bad, the load side is ok.
you can turn the volume down on the load side using volumn control
if yes that side is ok, fix weak side.

ask how, but make sure the wiring in all 4 corners are not damage
and at both ends of harness.

1995 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Mar 03, 2015 | 155 views

old post.
under hood panel is under hood. open hood, open PDC lid
in car its underdash, see it?
called JB or just fuse box.

the FSM is free, see 1993 for close match.
