00 GC stalled and won't start

2000 Grand Cherokee w/ the 4.7l and 2wd. Going down the road today and just cut out. It turns over for about 3 seconds till it acts like it catches but it only catches for about half a second until it dies. When the key is on and all the gauge lights come on, then go off, Check Gauges light stays on. I tried messing with the pcm and such. I had it towed to a local shop to have them run the code and run the diagnostics on it. I'm leading to believe it's the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Anyone else have experience with this problem. It's like the timing or something is way off for the half second it wants to start. The fuel pump turns on when it's cranked so we're good there also.

Matt

I had similar symptoms and it turned out to be the Camshaft Position Sensor

I had the same exact problem. I had no spark or anything. Replaced camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor at the same time and no more problem.
