I've used the forum a bit, but never had a question I couldn't answer with search... now I do.
I've got a 97 XJ that I've had and enjoyed for a few months. Now it is displaying the CEL and I've tried all the ways I could find here and on the intertubes to get the codes. Apparently the process changed in 97, so different things work for different builds. Naturally the one I buy is the transition...
Turning the key on, off, on, off, on resulted in nothing. Doing it 4 "ons" resulted in nothing. Pressing the trip reset while turning the key to on 3 times resulted in the odometer displaying, in sequence, 111111, 222222, .... 888888, 999999 with various indicator lights and gauges doing different things at each count. Then nothing. The CEL remains on, it doesn't display any codes. I've let it sit like this for over 1 minute, but not too much longer. I've also tried the trip reset process with the "on" count at 4. Same result as the 3 "ons".
What is the next step?
I do have an Autozone nearby, I just wanted to do it this way if possible. Thanks in advance!
