If the light is still on.. turn the jeep off and without turning it back on quickly turn the key on and off 3 times ( to the on position so that everything else is running except the engine) and you should see a code pop up where the kms are.

If you had the equipment to do so you wouldnt be asking so simplest answer is no, but you dont have to go to the dealership most auto shops have computers that can read the same codes, it should be free to stop in and ask them to give you the code and possibly turn off or reset the light.

Some of the larger auto parts will do a quick scan for free (they want to sell you parts). Some codes are best to ignore (or put aside) codes such as o2 sensor often are generated when the mixture itself is too far out of range. with a code such as that, I would pay more attention to one dealing with fuel / air management first, then clear codes, run and see if O2 code stays gone. What I'm telling you is you need some experience when dealing with codes or you can spend a lot of $ to get to the right place.

How to reset check engine light?

Go to your local O'Rielly's or Autozone. They will tell you the code and reset it for free. Otherwise take the negative battery cable loose for about 10 min. This will clear the ECM, but you won't know what tripped the light! Best Wishes, TJ

How do you turn off the check engine light on 2006 toyota tacoma

The easiest way is to disconnect the battery for about five minutes. This will reset the computer and clear any codes. Once you connect the battery you need to take the car out for a drive and let the computer relearn your driving habits. It you have something wrong with the car the check engine light will come on again. You will need to get the error code and fix the problem for the light to stay off permanently. Most car parts places will check your computer for error codes free.

Transmission not wanting to shift with fast take off ,check engine light is on, seems to work ok with slow take off.

Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Check engine light

The check engine light comes on when there is a problem with your car and will store a code which will tell you what that problem is. Take your car to a local auto parts store or garage and tell them your check engine light has come on. They can scan your computer and, most of the time, tell you what the code is and what it means. Good luck
