Drive cycle is performed by driving the car at hiway and city speeds over a few days and perhaps 50 miles or so, if the system detects the same issue after a few days of driving and completion of drive cycle then the check engine light will come back on.

SOURCE: I changed EGR valve as per innova 3100 tool said

the code only indicates a problem in the electronic feed back from the EGR valve position sensor, it DOES NOT say what is causing that, that is why there is extensive diagnostic routines to find the source of fault codes like you have, your problem is either the sensor that signals the computer the position of the valve or the wiring to that sensor (sensor sets on top of valve) or the PCM (computer control module) is defective.

Daniel, According to the instructional video below, the code reader is not listed to work on your vehicle, only OBD2 compliant vehicles Domestic, Asian, European sold in United States. Before purchasing another code reader or scan tool make sure it will work and diagnose codes for your vehicle, contact the manufacturer if need be for info. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

That's nothing but a generic code reader. You need a professional, bidirectional scan tool to do that.

Reset the abs warning light ?

all anwers USA< other cars are DIFFERENT> 96 CAD usa.
it auto resets at every keyon.
get the FSM and read the ABS chapter. it tells you that and that it needs a special scan tool to find all issues.
if frisky pull the battery neg, lug, wait 5min,, or turn on head lights and foot brake if in hurry,, I never am.
and put back the neg lug. this will make the ABS start virgin.

why not post the symptoms. my light is on, why>/
1: brakes are bad. do a brake job.
2: scan the ABS see the errors. and the tests.

my nice Innova scan tool 3160 does not do 96
1997 -2005, cad
see chart, there is NO ONE scan tool for ABS that does all cars.
under $10000 .
my tool does most OBD2 PCMs. but not ABS or bags for many cars.
but does have a nice set of coverage.

2 Remotes locks but won't UNLOCK my truck put in new batteries but just the same

step 1. check all fuses. (both fuse boxes ) using a real DMM meter.

if you connect any Jeep aware scan tool made, and scan it , it will tell you why.
I use the Innova 3160 . it shows jeep advanced codes.
or read that page on topic.
at it goes through all the steps.
or free here
veh theft security page.

read the page.

DRB is the factory scan tool.
but over the counter tools can see these codes too. DTC codes.

Gauges gone, except key signal.

fuses first. as always for ever. (its all electrical ,now to run engine)
and shift.
All jeeps 93 + have a thing (fear box) ASD relay.
nowing how it works and why , makes all this easy
any scan tool will tell you why. Innova 3120 (does jeeps this year)
a $100 tool
with special cables for jeep , OBD1 DTC port.

the tool will tell you , what DTC failure and why ASD drops.

the key on ,off trick may work
but be warned the keyone off trick does clear some spark failure codes and will not tell you the extended codes, of the factory DRB tool. so the INNOVA can be a "revelation"
id never own any jeep before 1996 , with no scan tool.
not me. first time it saves you, its now PAID FOR.
Investment grade TOOLS. if ever there was.
not $100 shop labor and no tools and guessing parts.
