Key dance

My check engine light comes on but not long enough for me to take it to get the code read. I have heard of a key dance for the wk but I can't get it to work in my Laredo. My neighbor did it first try in his limited and then tried it in my jeep but nothin. Is it only for limiteds?

I don't understand why it's not working. My neighbor did it first try in his limited but couldn't get it to work in my Laredo

For some reason I don't believe it works on 05/06 WKs. I could be wrong, but it doesn't work on mine.

Save yourself the hassle . You can buy a basic reader that will just give you the codes ( no discription ) and erase for 30.00 . that's basically all the codes the key dance is going to give you ,cause it won't give you all of them anyways .for well under 100.00 you can get a good code reader that will read all obdii , manufacturer specific codes , can codes and give you freeze frame data and erase. for 100-150 you can get one that will give you live data , abs codes and do some diagnostics as well .
just my .02
