like on OBDII scanner? I replaced my lines on my 4.7 (it was a PITA tightening the end into the pump by the reservoir) and i didn't have to plug in any scanner.. you jeep computer wont know the hose is off. just replace it and top off your fluid..

that is what I was thinking. There is a sensor or anything in the hose. I am not ever sure there is a sensor anywhere in the power steering system

No problems, just replace the hose with the updatd 2 piece hose. Install fitting into PS pump but don't tighten down, install sleeve into fan motor and then slide the metal tube into the sleeve. Tighen both and don't forget to bleed the system.
