VIN 1J4GW 68S1XC 751553
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't know how to check on the car computer
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
Thank you for the VIN! Unfortunately it is not coming back as a valid vin. Maybe because of your location?

Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
Anyway, I will tell you what the most possible/likley causes are for this stalling condition.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What is the meaning of PCM and BCM?
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
These are the things we replace all of a time for this stalling condition. Your best bet would be to check the cam and crank sensors first and to see if the computer is communicating when this occurs.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
The PCM is the powertrain control module. This is the computer that runs the engine.

Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
The BCM is the body control module. THis is the computer that runs the body of the vehicle.

VIN must be valid. This is an american car. How come the VIN isn't valid???
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
Not sure.. I would not be too concerned about it. Maybe a wrong number or so. Either way, that not that important. I can still send you the correct information because I know these vehicles very well and have been working on them for a long time.

A mechanic told me that it might be caused by ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT?CODE: P 0118Do you think, this can be true?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It is expensive for me to change all the spare parts you recommended. We don't have a Jeep dealership in my country (Rwanda). I will buy the spare-parts when I travel to Dubai then I will revert to you as soon as I change all the parts and check the car.
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
Hello!
The engine coolant temp sensor can cause that code. My experience has been that it usually it does not cause a stalling condition.
