maintenance required light

How do I get the maintenace required light to go off on a 1992 2.5L YJ. I'd like to do it however the factory does it rather than rig something.

Do I need an obd1 codes reader/clearer or can I reset myself?

Sorry if this is beating a dead horse. I'm new to the YJ world and didn't see this in the faq when I was reading through or get much help from search.

You need the special Chrysler code reader to turn it off.
DRB I think they call it.

If if is like the one that is on my YJ, it is nothing more than a mechanical timer. You can unhook it and the light will go out. It is nder the dash above the gas pedal. It is a clear black plastic box with some plastic gears in it that you can see. Just unplug it.

Not sure if they have a scanner for ob1 but you could take it to Auto Zone. Have them read the code and they can turn off the check engine light too.

93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list.
