Service reminder reset? Air Bag Idiot Beep?

I just bought a 99 Jeep Cherokee.

I left an inside light on, and the next day the battery was dead.

Recharged the battery, and started the car. Ever since, a warning "BEEP" has been occuring every minute, or so. How do I diagnose the problem, and moreover, cancel this damn beep?!

Also, having serviced the car, I would like to reset the "service now" indicator that is showing in the small LED screen between that is located between the Visors?

As far as the service now indicator, you will have to use an OBDII scanner to clear the service codes out of  your computer in order to turn off the indicator.  Autozone might be able to do this for free.  I know Autozone can read the codes, I am not sure if they can clear them.  I am not sure what the beep is.  Do you wear your seatbelt?  If not buckle the seatbelt and then sit on top of it, if  you absolutely don't want to wear it.  And that should fix it.  If you do wear your seatbelt, the beep might be some sort of airbag warning.

I bought a jeep gc 1993 last saturday. it started fine every time. this morning it started right up, then i shut it off to go inside to get my phone, and then no turn over, no lights, no nothing, except...

You could still have a weak battery (like with a dead cell) that wont take a charge. Get it checked first. Also check your battery connections. they need to be tight and CLEAN. You need a good ground connection on your battery negative cable too. If all that is o.k., start at the power distribution center (a large fuse block near the battery) Check that all your main fuses that distribute power everywhere are all good.

My air bag light will not go off. I disconnected the battery and reconnected it after waiting around 3 minutes. Then I turned the key without sitting on the seat but it still came back on. What do I do...

Unless you have a DRB scan tool, your not going to be able to shut this light off. The system displays the light due to a fault code that is recongnized in the system. Be very cautious with this circuit, do not probe any wires in the circuit or you may set the air bag off. The Jeep dealer's service center is your best option.

OBD11tech thinks I have a bad clock spring on my 1999 jeep cherokee classic due to my horn not working & the air bag light stays on. Where is the clock spring & how do I change it?

it's inside the steering wheel
must be careful, because of the air bag.
disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes for the air bag capacitor to discharge power.
remove the air bag module from the steering wheel
remove the center nut, then steering wheel
the clock pring is a yellow round piece that fitted inside the steering column. there is a snap ring hold the clock spring in place. disconnect the wiring then remove the clock spring.

Perform maintenance

This is simply a reminder to change the oil. You can reset it easily.

With the engine turned on and someone in the driver seat. Hit the step button until 0 miles to service appear, hit RESET. A beep will sound and it is done.

You may have to hold reset for a bit, varies from year to year and I forget if you do on 2000.
