Flashing means it is detecting bad misfires, other then that, need to know what codes you have, and the maint history of it. Things like how old are the spark plugs, what plugs are in it, how are they gapped, etc.

Start with P0340 and P0320,that is your crank sensor/Cam sensors which will cause sever misfires and a no start which also can cause code P1391.Then check for intake leaks for P0171 on the drivers side bank.Replace the throttle position sensor for P0123.P0725 and P0871 are trans codes.

ok guy's

6 months later, the damn thing is wigging out again,, I changed all the sensors. the thing just turns off randomly, some times it will start after words, but most of the time i have to wait for the battery to to reset the ecu.. it keeps saying it's the tps, even after I just put a one... I really don't know what else to do!?

Don't know about the Jeep aplication, but if it was my diesel pick up I'd be cleaning all electrical connectors with electric contact cleaner and reconecting with dielectric grease, cleaning all ground conections, and checking battery cables very closely. Battery cables may look good but be corroded inside.

This would be the cheapest starting point and you can do it your self.

All the wires look good, there is no corrosion.

I'm trying to fix this thing for my 71 year old mom that it keeps leaving stranded....

Where did you source the tps, ckp and cmp sensors? If it wasnt the dealer, that may be your first problem.

Well, not to hurt your feelers but bautozone and their quality is laughable at best. On the electrical end of things, they tend to fail prematurely, and wouldn't be shocked at all if you source the parts from the dealer, your problems will disappear completely. There is a reason legit professionals wont use their garbage, and its not a matter of price. I dont get paid a penny more for dealer sourced parts, as I am paid on labor only. I do however dont get paid a thing when I have to try 3 of the bautozone parts to find a good one, or convince a service writer to get a dealer part.

How good are the ckp and cmp sensors? There are plenty of things that can set the TPS codes and the TPS not be the source of the problem. Typically, there are three wires on a TPS. Reference 5v, signal return, and ground. Do you have 5v to the sensor? Do you have any voltage drop to ground? Whats the signal output of the sensor to the PCM? Is the signal return making it to the PCM?

That can go back to the bautozone cmp and ckp sensors. Verify that both sensors are giving out a good signal.
