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.

SOURCE: Jeep Grand Cherokee Service engine light soon on

A loose gas cap will sometimes trigger the service light to come on.  Since this appears to have happened on multiple occasions I can assume that this is not the problem but may be associated with it.  The level of gas in the tank affects the amount of atmospheric pressure in the tank. There are multiple things that could set off the light, one being a loose or defective gas cap, and the other is a fuel vapor return valve.  I'm not sure of the exact type of fuel system you have so I cant give a more exact answer.  If you wanted to give something a shot before bringing it into the shop, you can simply replace the gas cap first, a very cheap try.

There is no way for you or me to tell. In order to determine what service it needs you should go to the dealer and they will perform a diagnostics test. I think it is around $95. It could be something simple as a fuse or reset needed. It could possibly be under warranty and not cost you anything but the $95.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: perform service jeep grand cherokee 2005

Actually the newer cherokees are a little more complicated, it's not a reminder for an oil change. It is for an emssions service that should be performed according to the dealer. Here is the rest procedure

Turn ignition to on position, but do not start.
Depress brake pedal fully twice.
depress excellerator very slowly twice
Turn ignition off & that will reset the perform service indicator.
I am mechanic & we are getting frustrated because the dealers do not want to release this info to anyone, they want your money! Can you believe if you did not get them to perform the service they charge you a 1 hour shop rate??

If you want to DiY, get an OBD code reader that'l connect to a smartphone. I use one with my two Mopars and it's great for pulling diagnostic codes (and recording GPS tracks). The brakes, electronic 4WD and traction control (wavy lines) are all critical safety systems; if you don't pull the codes yourself then get it to a good mechanic as soon as you can.

With a code reader connected to the DTC connection, are there any trouble codes stored? Is there an engine light lit? You will need a code reader to at least start a diagnosis and also a fuel pressure gauge.

Oil light is on but oil is ok on the dipstick!


You might try removing the battery connectors for five minutes and replacing back.

If the codes do not disappear, please you might have to get a scanner to do that.

Cheers.

Service 4 wheel drive


The service 4 wheel drive light comes on because there's a problem. The biggest causes of this I've seen are a software glitch in the final drive control module which the dealer can fix by reprogramming and the other is usually the electric actuator on the front axle housing. The only light that comes on by a timer is the one that says, "perform service" in your overhead console or odometer.
