I disconnected the battery, wait 30 mins, then connected +/- , than connected back to battery, but the trouble codes not cleared.
Any way? Thanks!

OK! I got it:

This very simple procedure will Erase the “Adaptive Memory” stored inside the TJ PCM and allow a new “Adaptive Memory” to be developed.

After performing this procedure the PCM will re-learn and store into Adaptive Memory your engines performance characteristics.

[L]Disconnect the POSITIVE battery Terminal and touch it to ground for 30 seconds. (This is to discharge the PCM capacitors, which maintain the Adaptive Memory.
Reconnect the Battery Cable
Turn Ignition Switch to the “On” position but DO NOT start the engine
Turn Headlight “On”
Turn Headlights “Off”
Turn Ignition Key “Off”[/L]

Adaptive memory has now been flashed, or erased from the PCM.

When you start the engine it will be running off a set of pre-programmed tables that come with the PCM from the factory.

When you get the engine up to operating temperature the PCM will start to collect data for the “Adaptive Memory”.

The PCM will collect data for Adaptive Memory for the first 50 Warm-up Cycles.

His picture is a YJ. On the YJ, it is just a matter of disconnecting the battery for 10 seconds. That is all it needs. No headlights or touching leads together. Just disconnect the battery. The computer will always show 12,33, and 55 after a reset.

11 is the crank position sensor. 41 can be the alternator or the control for the alternator. Are you having issues with the performance?

Replace the crank position sensor first. Then do a battery reset and see if the fault clears.

Que, to my understanding code 11 is for the "ignition" in general correct? I was under the impression that code 11 crank sensor was for OBDII readouts. My haynes says for the 4.0 code 11 is "ignition".

The only reason I bring this up is years ago I was throwing a code 11 and it turned out to be a fuel pump wire that was shorting out as it went over the tcase.
