documentation (see Retrieving codes (2005-2010 Grand Cherokee) section) am trying to receive them, i.e. i do following steps:
Off > On > Off > On > Off > On
and at the third "On" the odometer has to list the codes if they are, otherwise the message "Done" should appear.
The problem is that, i see nothing, i.e. no "Done" message, no error codes, i see just my mileage.
I have Jeep Grand Cherokee 2005 3.7L Laredo.
I am to obtain error codes, cause my Malfunction Indicator Lamp is light on, after engine starting.
It looks like funny, but really nothing happens. I went through the all possible variants with different speed of switching from the "Off" to "On" position. I definitely do that rapidly and wait on the third time when it's in "On" position. I have 4 ignition key positions: OFF, ACC, ON, START.
1) Insert ignition key (OFF pos)
2) turn it to ON;
3) back to OFF;
4) again to ON;
5) back to OFF;
6) go to ON, it's final state.
btw, i do that within 5 second interval as it proposed in the manual.

Was your Jeep recently stuck in some deep snow?
I was looking around and found this code mentioned in relation to rocking the vehicle back and forth to get out of a snow bank. It's from the 300C forums, so I don't know if that's directly related to your problems though.
Yes exactly, it happened immediately after moving back and forward, in order to get out of the snow bank, after that the MIL began lighting,
but i couldn't realize how it can influence on such behavior. Thank you for the links, they describe the problem exactly what i have :-)
Now i understand what i did wrong, i shifted the gear selector without well pressing the brake pedal.
Yesterday i cleared this code, and MIL is not light now. So, now i have another problem, may be :-)
When i turn my ignition key to the ON position, the MIL it's not flashing at first, but approximately 10 sec. MIL begins to flash with one small sound, then after ~5 sec it's just light. After that i start my engine, the MIL symbol comes off.
i.e. When i turn the ignition key to the ON position, the MIL is flashing for about 10 sec, and then
return to being fully illuminated till i start the engine. When the engine is run, the MIL symbol come off, i.e. as it has to be.
