That doesn't work on the 2000...

I know on my jeep I had to hold up on the plug to get a reading . Then I got another plug from the junk yard and wired it in . Seems like the prongs inside the plug get loose . If you have the tool to pull out the conectors you can clean and tighten them up it'll work like new

03 RUBI Chiltons and Haynes are both close to worthless. Try to get your hands on a FSM. Contact a guy on here by the name of ATTHEHOP.

Can the day get worse?

#1) Today I decided to adjust the trans bands in my '00 Wrangler. (2.5, Auto) First off let me say NEVER LISTEN TO THE CRAP WRITTEN IN A CHILTONS!! The book says rear band gets adjusted to 72inlb & 4 turns out. NOPE.. Tore it back apart & I set it to 41inlb & 7 turns out. It now looks like before I started. Now it shifts fine. $30 of new fluid in the crapper.

#2) Does the 2000 have a key ON-OFF test for trouble codes? I have a new scan tool I just spent $500 on & the damn thing wont link to the Jeep. It works on all the other cars I tested but not my TJ. I pulled the test port down & cleaned it up & made sure all the wires & pins were good.

The Jeep has been acting up lately. It dies at idle. I checked everything but the IAC. I wanted to check for codes before I change it.
