Customer Question
I got a check...

I got a check engine light 2 days ago and now my car is unable to start. When the key is turned, the engine will crank over but will not ignite. Take 60+ plus time to turn over and once on runs like a dream

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '60 Jeep?

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am fixing myself. So far I have not done much exept for run an OBD2 read and receieved a failed connection. My next step is going to be replacing my CPS

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I do not believe so

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Was the scan tool that was used one that can read all computers in your model or have you tried a different scan tool at all?

Has anything else been checked or tested for this issue here at all?

Let me know, thanks, Pete.

The OBD2 scanners I have been using are not getting power from my jeep to even work

Have you checked for any blown fuses particularly the cigar lighter/power outlet fuse?
