1999 Cherokee, 4.0, 200k miles Let me first start by saying that this Jeep owes me nothing. Since new it has been exceedingly reliable. However, the other day, I drove to work, parked, then returned 8 hours later and the vehicle would not start. The engine turned over like a champ but never started.
During the process of attempting to start the engine a few things out of the ordinary were noted. As I turned the key towards the starting position, I noticed that I did not hear the fuel pump prime and simultaneous to that the amp gage and fuel gage (tank is full) remained inactive. All other instrument panel functions seemed operational.
Any suggestions as to the problem and remedy will be greatly appreciated.

you ether have no power to your fuel pump (check fuses and relays) or your fuel pump is shot .

i would first hot wire the fuel pump , there is an electrical connector on the drivers side near the gas tank , should have three wires on it . hopefully there is a smaller gauge wire on it like mine this is for the sender . so ignore it . run one to the + side of the battery and one to the - side of the battery (black preferably) the other one is probably orange run it to +

does it do anything ?

if no then go buy a new fuel pump and install it .
