    want 2 reset check engine light

    start with the key off. then turn it all the way on (do not start) and back off 3 times and on the 3rd time watch your odometer. it should say P0xxx where the x's are numbers. That will give a starting point for your check engine light. The service engine soon light means you're due for an oil change. You can reset it with the menu and step buttons on the overhead computer

I had the same problem I believe.....
Changed the spark plugs and at the same time I changed the oil & Filters, (Oil & air ). You may not need to change the air fliter, But mine needed it. With the step buttons on the overhead, I could not find any reset. (my check engine light staied on) I'm no Darn Computer geek & frustrated easly by them. LOL ....So I disconected the battery cable, ( waited 15 to 20 sec) then reconnected the cable and this resets the computer. No more worning signs.
You may just need to change the oil & filter and reset the cp. Hope this helps

1999 Jeep Grand cherokee Limited, 5.9 liter torque setting for head bolts

posted the fsm
5.9L, 1999 WJ?
check it covers this engine,
buy my WJ, fsm skips the 5.9L, not sure why.
ah only the limited has that. engine.
my online links show no 5.9L. so see why you are asking here.
why not go to real jeep forum and ask.

here are the (what else) questions
are they TTY?
are the reusable.?
are the angle set.?
what is the pattern ? Sequence.
and staging levels .? (about 1./3 steps is ok)
those are always a question. and the FSM answers them all.
for your car.

if the expensive WJ (limited) FSM is too pricey, (it is)
then ask here.

one search, you can too, or better ask them.

the intake is TTY bolts.
not head, heads are 2 times, bolts. lol.

im not sure what book covers the 5.9L, it might be a supplement.
ask jeep for best advice, there.

On our Jeep Grand Cherokee 2005 the perform service comes on for the first minute after starting, then disappears. I have used a code reader under the dash and no message appears.

05 GC
i guess you lost the operators guide, as do most post here.
buy one?
its not an error, DTC are errors
the 05 that is a DO SERVICE light, all new cars have this.
the way it works is
you drive
lamp comes on
they do the service, and they turn it out
or you do it and then turn it out.

that simple.
so then you ask, how to turn it off.
answer, posted 1million times, (goggle it)

here ill type that for you, no problem.

easy huh?
or get the operators manual.
here it is for free.
down load it and keep it. (read it, it covers this 100%)

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L 164,000 miles, 4 issues: #1 = DIY to fix gurgling under passenger-side dash (heater core and pan dry; no stains). However, every now and then, coolant recovery bottle...

Heater core is probably leaking. There is a tray with a hole in it . so you wont get coolant on the floor like the old vehicles. A radiator pressure tester can confirm this.

Perform service light on what does it mean?

If it is only "perform service", this is likely your mileage counter telling you to get an oil change. If it was a "check engine light" it would be amber in color and would require use of a scanner to acquire codes and check for faults. Here's how to reset:
On a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo if the "Perform Service" light is in the middle of the dash Simply press the "SET" button until the display shows the "0 miles to service", Then hold the other button below it down until it resets to "3000".

What does perform service message mean?

This is a oil change reminder. Nothing fancy about, when you get your oil change go into the menu and click reset counter and it will go off. If there was something wrong with your car the check engine light would come on.
