Disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. If it comes back on, you have a problem and need to check it out. Dont understand you second question. On my 2000 I do the key trick and it will flash any code that is stored. HTH

Up until 2000 models I believe you cycle the key three times to read the code. On 2001 + model TJs you hold the odometer reset and turn on the key.

I have to do the key trick on my mom's 2005 KJ CRD and it is a little tricky.
