    Your issue looks like low coolant water?

    Other thing is the maintenance reminder reset:

    To reset counter, turn ignition on, then press SELECT button momentarily, then press and hold SET button for at least 2 seconds.

    We talk about the daskboard center/low green picture of your car, showing you also things like open doors etc. At this console you find the Select Button.

You will need an OBD (onboard diagnostics) handset to read and or reset the codes. It would be good to know why the lamp came on to aviod and break downs possible in your future. They are available in any automotive store or even the auto section of many major Dept. stores. they generally include a code book or sheet to decode the reason for the light coming on. you may not be able to reset the light with out resolving the issue causing it to come on.

    I also found out that if you are in the US you can take your vehicle into an Auto Zone store, and they will hook it up to an OBDII reader and tell you what the code is. I would then have to think that any of their right minded competitors would do the same to get your business.

    Hope this is of some help.

This sounds silly, but did you turn the gas cap where it clicked 3 times after you got gas? found that out when my check engine light came on..took it to an auto place and he asked me.
I made sure it clicked when I closed the gas cap, and sure enough,it worked..Light went out.

None of my pulleys will turn on my jeep Cherokee larado

with the belt on or off? If when off, anything not turning means the bearings are probably frozen. The units would need replacement. Its a coincidence that all are not turning at the same time. CHECK CRANK & CAMS WITHOUT THE BELT. IF THOSE ARE N/G YOUR STARTING TO LOOK AT A MOTOR REPLACE OR SERIOUS REPAIR.

How to get the engine light off on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after having my termostat changed?

You need to read the computor, I believe if you turn the ignition three times without starting it, and the engine lite will blink, that is how you read the codes, long blinks are ten, two long blinks is 20, and the faster blinks are one, get back to me what the codes are and i'll help you.

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)
