99 Jeep Cherokee Stalling Need Help Please

by Shiningstar62280 / April 15, 2008 11:18 AM PDT

Hi I have a 99 Laredo 4.7 v8, I've had it for 6 months now and all of a sudden when I drive it the jeep keeps shutting down. When it stalls all the gauges drop to zero. The check engine light comes on, it says check gauges, and a key symbol pops up. Yesterday when I was driving it, it stalled again. When it idols for a long time it shuts down. I changed the fuel pump and the clutch fan, but its still happening. I got it diagnosed when it shut down and I'm not getting any codes. Its at the mechanic shop right now and they can't figure out whats wrong with it. Can you someone please help???

When does the stall happen?

Does it stall when you jam on the brakes or does it stall out while cruising? Any funky sounds you hear right before the stall could help diagnose it as well.

At first it was when we came to a stop. Now its while we're driving. Do you have any idea what it could possibly be??

My 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Keeps Stalling

We found out what the problem is. One of the connections to the computer is no good. Each time we hit a bump, the connection losens causing the jeep to shut down. You might want to look into that with your jeep as well.

I have a '99 GCL with the same problems :

Seems to be engine compartment heat related also. In cool weather - does not seem to be a problem.

Did this fix the problem permanently ? If so, how did you fix the bad PCM block problem ? Replace the PCM or the bad block ? How were you able to test the bad block problem ?

Thanks - Mart
