FAQ - Check Engine Light and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (Error Codes, Problem Codes)

If your TJ has a check engine light illuminated, below is the procedure for retrieving the diagnostic trouble code(s):
  1. Turn the ignition key until the digital odometer displays, then turn it back to off. Repeat three times in succession. (ON/OFF/ON/OFF/ON)
  2. Count the number of times the check engine light on the dash flashes on and off. The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses separate different trouble codes.
  3. For example, light flashes 5 times, then a short pause, then flashes 5 more times. This is code 55.
  4. Diagnostic trouble codes will also be shown in the odometer display.
  5. Code 55 is the last diagnostic trouble code displayed.
  6. See below for list of diagnostic trouble codes.
Note: This procedure does not work on 1998, 1999, and some 2000 model TJs.


Thanks to Knuckelhead for pointing out that it does not work on some 2000 models.
