Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What is causing my 2000 jeep Cherokee laredo to shut off
while idle or stopping at a light? I replaced the radiator in
the winter, ran fine until a month ago. The check engine
light came on and the diagnostic suggested an idle control
sensor. Repaired car continues to shut off. Replaced map
sensor, crankshaft sensor, and cam sensor. None have
fixed my car. . The check engine light has not came back on
but the vehicles  continues to stop. Anybody fixed this? The
jeep has 70,000 miles,.

If you know someone with a Chrysler diagnostic machine or something similar you can do an idle relearn, This should be done when you change the Idle control motor. If not then you will have to bring it to a shop with the equipment to get it done. I can't guarantee this will fix it. As I can't diagnose the problem without the car. But it should have been done when you replaced the IAC anyway.
