Check Engine Light

Our check engine light came on, is there any way to pull the codes to see what the issue is (short of buying an OBDII reader). Thanks.

Go to the dealer or any auto parts store, they'll pull the codes for free.

Is this on a ZJ or WK?

[SIZE="1"]2008 WK Overland HEMI - Modern Blue Pearlcoat
Fully loaded with slush mats of course.

MUST GO! 1994 Limited ZJ 5.2L V8 - Light Driftwood Satin Glow
It's a 94 5.2L Limited - trxus 33's on 15x7 steelies, 4.56s w/ front OX and rear trutrac, NP242 swap, novak shift kit, Kevin's ultimate 4.5" lift + ACOS, ARB front bumper w/warn M8000, rear tomkin machine bumper w/ tire carrier, kevin's hardore railz, kevin's ultimate tc skid, kevin's trackbar conversion, rusty's gas skid, flexalite efan, Kolak's performance ignition and brake upgrades. ViAir OBA, custom storage/sub box and I'm sure there's a bunch of other things I'm missing. Everything is a little over 3 years old with less than 10K miles. Looking to get around $4k.

I just disconnected the battery to reset the light.

It's for the WK. I was just trying to avoid driving to the local dealership (45 mins away) or a body shop.

If you want to check for a stored code, turn the key on, off, on, off, on and it should display any stored codes in the DIC.

It works for me. Looks like I have some codes stored too, electronic throttle and Evap. Awesome.

Never ended up trying the key thing, just disconnected the battery for 15 mins and it cleared it out.
