Last thursday I bought my first Wrangler. Its form 2005, and for Aruba, in a quite good condition. Ofcourse there are some things to do, but nothing a bit of TLC can't take care of.
Except for 1 thing, that is the OBDII code 2096 that comes up. The story is as follows: I testdrove it, no Check Engine Light comes on. The two days after, nothing happens. And today, the CIL comes up. I checked the error code (by turning the key 3-times), which read 2096. I do not have a service manual, so I don't know what to make of this code? Does anyone have a clue what this means?
I heard the CIL comes up after fueling and not closing the cap properly, but that has a different code I believe.
Thx for your quick reply. I'll have a look at the exhaust first, although it doesn't make a leaking sound. I'll give the wiring to the sensors a check as well. I really hope it's not the O2 sensors, because I have the feeling those are expensive (as they are on other cars, like the ones I had to replace on my 300ZX). The engine itself runs smooth, so I don't think I'm experiencing a mechanical problem.
I got that yesterday after driving through a lot of dust in the air. Reset the code and light went off, code hasnt come back. Had the same code 3 months ago, reset, and just came on yesterday after that huge amount of dust.
Been having this problem with my '05 TJ. but it happens only after a oil change. About 200 miles after I change oil the check engine light comes on. The code is 2096. I reset the code and it stays off till the next oil change. Has me confused. Does not affect how it runs.
