We have a 2000 grand cherokee with 95000 miles and we've been having this problem for several weeks. The dealer kept it for a week and couldn't find the problem...it showed no codes. On another forum (CNET Forums: Car Tech)there were posts about mid-90s models having this problem and it possibly being a PCM issue. My husband tried the fix but the configuration is a little different on the 2000 model. Hopefully someone out there will have an idea of why this is happening, since the dealer's technicians had no idea.

I am having the same problem. I dread driving in rush hour because I never know when it will completely cut out. Sometimes it will start right back up and other times it takes up to 10 minutes. One blog I read said this error code came up when the computer was tapped into.

error code "P0320 Ignition/Distributor
Engine Speed Input Circuit"

I am still working on the issue and will post any findings for everyone and will be checking back on your comments as well.

Thanks!

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee was stalling out while driving and the odometer code read P0320 which means the crackshaft position sensor was bad. It is a hard part to get to but with the right tools not so bad to fix. Cost me about $70 to replace and resolved my issue. To check the odometer code turn the ignition to on then off 3x and on the third time leave on and wait for the code to display.

I have had the same problem as above. It will just stall and I won't even know it until I go to push the gas. Did anyone here ever figure this out. The mechanic I took it to told me I need a new computer, he also said he wasn't sure if that was it so I wanted to get some outside input.

My 2000 Grand Cherokee died while driving. All gauges are pinned to the left. I plugged in the computer to get the code to see what is wrong and the computer will not connect. I checked all the fuses both in the car and under the hood. I also checked all of the relays and the battery. Has anyone had this problem before? Did my computer die?

My 1999 Grand Cherokee stalled while driving. The dealer putin a new Crankshaft position sensor. It works fine.

The only problem is the alarm was woking fine until I had it repaired. Now no flashing red light on the dash. What could be the problem?

I too have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee that keeps stalling while im driving. It gives no sign its about to stall and I only know it stalled because when I am pressing the gas pedal the speed drops and wheel locks. Most of the time it starts right back up, some times it takes a few trys. Any idea what this could be?

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (V8). The following similar intermitent problem has occurred a few times within the past year. While driving, with no advance warning, it stalls (all gauges dead), making me control my gear shift, accelerator and brake pedals simultaneously so as not to stall on the road. Some other times when I go to turn on the car and turn the ignition key, the gauge needles whip violently around then back to their starting point, and no response from any system in the car. After an about 15-20 min the car starts again but must work the pedals and gear shift simultaneously to avoid stalling.

If the temperature outside is over 85 degrees, I have to pump gas about 4 times while cranking to get it to start. I can turn it off, and it will start right back up. Engine is running strong, and transmission is shifting smoothly. Once I turn it off and leave it in the heat for over 20 minutes, I have the same problem all over again. Dealership can't seem to find the problem. I have taken it 5 different times to have it serviced for that particular problem, and it is always the same, "We can't duplicate the problem." I believe it is they just don't know how to fix it. In the winter and cooler months, I starts GREAT!

My 2000 JGC is now doing the same thing; hot weather engine shuts down at 50 mph+, and the guages drop dead. I really like my JGC, but I hav been fighting these stupid electrical problems for 5 years - can't take it anymore. anyone with a clue, let me know; the repair shop doesn't have a clue.

I had an intermittent and seemingly random stalling problem. It would sometimes need to sit over an hour before it would restart. The dash light with the key crossed out would light up and I intitally thought it was the Sentry Key Immobilizer Module but it turned out that replacing the PCM on the firewall was the problem. The dealer quoted me $850 but I managed to find a refurbished one on ebay for $200 and it only took a little over half an hour with no special tools to install. It's been 6 months and haven't had a stall since. Hope this helps someone.
