bulit in dianostic?

i had a friend tell me about a built in dianostic tool in the jeeps...he said something about turning the key on and off a certain number of times and it would show some sort of code...is there any truth to this??? If so how do you read it ???

I wish I had seen this last week! My check engine light came on, right after Hurricane Ike hit, and could not get the Jeep into the dealer to see what was wrong. I suspected bad gas, and intentionally ran it down as low as possible, and the light finally went out.

Are these codes retentive? Meaning, is the last code there even if the light has cleared?

I'll go try and see.

On Board Diagnostic OBDII. All late model vehicles have this.

You can generally borrow (or buy) a code reader from Autozone or other automotive parts stores. It's a nice tool to have to see why the check engine light is lit. Once you know the "error" you can replace the part and clear the check engine light. I've saved $$ using it.

you don't need a reader for our JK's- see the link I posted above. It tells how to get the code displayed on the dash, and a list of what all the codes mean
