doclouie Okay I feel a little bit dumb. I have pulled codes off my Jeep before and now I can't seem to get it to say anything on the odometer. I cycle the key 3 times and nothing happens. How long does it take for the odometer to flash the codes or done? Does the door need to be open or closed?

That isnt true. You can turn the key 3 times to the "run" position and the codes will come up. No need for a scanner to get the codes...not sure about resetting them tho.

If you are trying to get OBD codes, that's not how you do it. You do not do anything with the odometer button. Jusy cycke the key off-on-off-on-off-on

s3nt3nc3d If it's still running good... keep driving it and see if the CEL resets (sometimes it will take a few restarts before it turns off). Also, are you sure you pulled the codes properly? I tried to pull mine the other day...just to see if it worked...and it at least said "done" in my odometer display showing that it worked and there were no codes to display.

Check Engine Light, but no problem..?

Hey guys
I went mudding with some of my friends earlier and when we went to leave, my engine starting bogging down a lot.. (hard to accelerate) and I pulled over on the highway, when my check engine light came on, my buddies turned around and came back for me and one of them took the distributor off and wiped it down to get the moisture out. I started the jeep up and it was fine.

I noticed my CEL was still on... When I got home, I did the little key trick to run some codes, nothing popped up. I sprayed some brake cleaner in the distributor, took the gauge cluster off and put it back on, started the jeep up again, but still CEL...

Any suggestions?
