question about maintenance and service

i dont believe the 60,000 mile service to have ever been done on my 2006 Wrangler sport 6cyl 6spd with 76,300 miles on it. i know for a fact i have the front pinion seal leaking. brakes i believe will also need to be done. I replaced the serpentine belt 2k miles ago and i have a k&n cleanable air filter so i dont need a new one. also just performed my own oil change last week. im wondering if timing belt/chain is nearing needing to be done or if its past. wondering what i might be spending if i took it to jeep?

Timing chain won't need maintained. It should be good for the life of the motor pretty rare to have one go bad.

disconnecting the battery should reset the codes.

The seal is not hard you just need the right tools and a good place to wrench on it. I had a shop do one on my old bronco a while back $100. I could not get the pionion nut to brak loose. The scan tools can also be picked up pretty cheap under $50

i took the battery cable off and let it sit for 30 min and its clears for 2 restarts and light comes back. the original wiring hasnt been disturbed or anything, cant barely get at it cause its loomed and held to the frame with plastic thingies. i tried with my scanner and it reads to code but cant clear it for whatever reason. wondering if maybe aftermarket brand sensor is to blame or somehow the wiring isnt good anymore? it was clean and i dielectric greased the sensor pins too. i changed it 10 days ago, new sensor was working fine then light came back on and i reset it to have it last 2 restarts only and returns. got another new sensor, doesnt even last past 2 restarts. im getting quite pissed off already with electrical crap, wish this jeep was a 79, wouldnt have any electrical crap to screw with performance regardless of it being good or bad

about to take it to jeep and let them figure it out, if its not right after they change the sensor then they have to fix it after the code comes back in a day. i dont wna start tearing the jeep apart to get at all the wiring to that one sensor
