I believe that the 2006 Commander uses the newer CAN protocol, which replaced the ODB-II system. Many of the auto parts stores such as Autozone have a scan tool that they can hook up and read the codes that are causing the malfunction light to come one (sometimes also referred to as the check engine light or service engine light). If you go there and tell them the year make and model they should be able to tell you if they can read the code.

Once you have that code they should be able to tell you what it means and if that is not helpful or clarify the issue, post it up here and I will see what I can find for you regarding the issue.

2006 Jeep Commander V8 Iimited 4.7 will my eng light come on at specific mileage milestones? 70k

No. The only time the check engine light will come on is when the computer sees a fault with a sensor, a problem with a component it controls, or a problem with a system that it monitors. Your best bet is to have the computer scanned to see what codes are present. Once you know that post them here and i'll be happy to help you further.

I don't think I would be concerned about the vehicle sitting for 5 days. Get it scanned and work on a fix,for why the light came on.
