Matt - My 1997 Grand Cherokee wont start. Fires up then

Customer Question

Hi Matt - My 1997 Grand Cherokee wont start. Fires up then stops. Fob key batteries replaced too in case it was that. The only light on dash is the ABS - nothing else. Battery OK. Did a jump start - no effect. Any ideas or do I call out the recovery truck?

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Is the check engine light on? Does the check engine light come on with the key on for a bulb check? Are there any codes in the computer? Does the engine remain running with starting fluid? Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash with the key on or when trying to start the engine?
