Simple answer
push the reset button on the scan tool
all old DTCs are now erased, SOP.
then drive,
see if they return.
did you forget to reset them?????

then you said the light is still there, so now the scan tool is lost.
the lamp is just a silly lamp. scan it, again
even a silly loose gas cap sets off the lamp. CEL

unless you read the FSM book and read the how long it takes to drive off each corrected DTC error cause, takes for ever on some
that is why there is button there, on the tool to reset them.
why do other wise????

Check the codes again! The P0133 is O2 sensor bank 1 and the P0430 is O2 sensor bank 2.

The next step requires the connection to the OBDII port with a graphic scanner. These problems are relatively easy to diagnose with the proper tool. A graphic representation of the Bank 1 O2 sensor will tell in just a few minutes if the upstream O2 is working properly.

The attached link is worth the time to review the operation and diagnosis of your reported problem. With the knowledge of how these sensors and cat work graphically will provide you with the ability to chose the right shop to diagnose whats going on.

The link is a 30 minute tape and will provide the insight. The P0133 is the easiest to diagnose and it is the bank 1 upstream O2 sensor. The wave shape always looks like the attached photo below. The interval between peaks is about 1 second.

The problem with both banks having problems requires a review of the engine operation. Common to both problems is the engine fuel system.

Diagnosing catalyst efficiency code P0420 or P0430

Things to check are as follows:
Check and fix any exhaust leaks
Check for wiring problems (shorted, frayed wires)
Check the frequency and amplitude of the oxygen sensor (advanced)
Check for a deteriorating / contaminated oxygen sensor, replace if necessary
Check for inlet air leaks
Check the MAF sensor for proper operation

Its not unusual for the crankshaft sensor to intermittanly fail. The crank sensors are not real expensive and are not extremely hard to change.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is mounted into the engine block above the starter motor. Engine speed and crankshaft position are provided through the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor generates pulses that are the input sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM interprets the sensor input to determine the crankshaft position. The PCM then uses this position, along with other inputs, to determine injector sequence and ignition timing. The sensor is a Hall effect device combined with an internal magnet. It is also sensitive to steel within a certain distance from it.
Below is a pic of the sensor location.
Good luck.

2002 grand cherokee, overland 4,7L engine doesnt

Hi Joko,

What you are describing is a failure of a main circuit. The first thing you should check is yo make sure that your battery is in good condition and that the cables are clean and tight. Let me know if yu find anything wrong there. Then there may be another main circuit problem. Check all of the fuses in your fuse block in the engine compartment. If any of these fuses are blown, it will usually cause several things to not work. If you find any fuses blown, DON'T REPLACE IT YET. Let me know WHICH fuse is blown and I can help you find out why it blew so you can get the problem fixed.

Get back to me on this and we will continue.

P0420 & P0430 GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO 2005 3.7L

Hi Rabih,

I hate to tell you this, but it is time to stick your hands DEEP into your pockets and get ready to spend the big bucks! Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0420 and P0430 are "catalyst efficiency below threshold" codes. The ONLY way to fix them is to replace your catalytic converters. If you also have any other codes, you must fix these FIRST, otherwise you will only destroy new converters as well.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2007(3.7),with 33,000 miles in it. The OBD-Code diagnose was P0430 B (Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold(Bank2). I change the 2 oxygen sensors on the...

If the diagnostic code wasn't cleared with a scan tool and thus turning off the engine light; it will stay on for this code until the engine computer no longer detects a problem. For emissions control parts that will take a predetermined number of warm up and run cycles, usually about 30.

In other words if the problem was fixed then your computer will clear the code and the engine light will shut off automatically. That is what your dealer service should have told you.
