This is the wrong forum. Stock CJ's do not have "check engine" lights.

A jumper wire is just a wire that connects terminal 6 and 7. Grab some scrap wire, but you Are in the wrong Forum.

I would just go to AUTOZONE and borrow a code reader. Plug it into the OBDII terminal to run a dignostic. You might be able to reset the light but it'll turn on again if you don't fix the problem.
