I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo. 4.0L Striaght 6. 2WD. It will start and continue running as long as you have your foot on the throttle. When you drop to idle it will die. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Sounds to me like its the idle air control motor. It might also be called a stepper motor. Its either gotten stuck, unhooked, or has just plain crapped out on you. Its on the side of the throttle opposite the throttle position sensor. Take it out and see whats up, chances are you'll have to just replace it.

Guess what..............It was an almost dead battery. Still under warranty from Sears so only $15.99 labor for a new one.
