Grand Cherokee

I read with interest your problem solving on the aforementioned car,
My car is a 1996 Grand Cherokee 4,0L,English version, my car has being playing up for a while now and with all the instruments on the panel going out, it finally gave up the ghost last week whilst we were in town and we had to get home on the back of relay wagon,

The car starts and then dies, I have checked that there is plenty of fuel coming through, I've checked the catalystic converter and that is free, but still have the same problem, it starts and then dies.

In the past, I've messed about with the door lock on off on off, rattling the steering wheel and hit the horn, small things like this has allowed the car to start, howver, even these no longer work.

I am just about to follow some advice given in an earlier post, about the screws on the pcm, I am fast running out of ideas, does anyone have any other suggestions?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
