I have a 1999 jeep Cherokee sports 4 door and this is my problem: as I am drive my jeep just shut down on me with no warning light or indication what saw ever. I had it tow to my mechanic to check out the problem and he discover that fuse amp 20 to the fuel pump had went bad so it was replaced but, as I drove it out going home it happen again. Back to the mechanic! The fuse was replaced and it ran again but after a few drives it shut down again. The mechanic doesn’t know the problem to why the fuse for the fuel pump keeps on going bad and all electrical wire are good.

If someone had this problem before please let me know.

Thanks
Ozzie

It sounds like your fuel pump is going bad and drawing too much current. The only other thought is an intermittent short like a frayed wire hitting metal somewhere.
