But you never scanned it the 2nd time, maybe the gas cap is loose.
p2 is jeep factory only code (unlike p0,1)
so only jeep books get this correct .
2007 MK Jeep it is.
is P2008 a rumor or did you see it with YOUR EYE and on what a real scan too?
P2008 Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) Solenoid Control Circuit

so what did he do? replace it , clean it? what?
if you clean it and it dont work, then its bad. replace it.
as for why the CEL glows now, you'd have to scan it again
mine has like 300 DTC's possible. so ID NEVER ASSUME its still P2008- not me , id scan it, any shop or store can scan it,
why wait, or guess or worry.?
or ask him to help, see if it is something new, or just the gas cap loose.

How do i fix it.
i dont know what you can do.... personally?
buy the FSM and read?
buy a scan tool and scan.
be clear as to all DTC thrown, and post them all.

SOURCE: my check engine light came

Some ck engine lights come on after 100,000 miles or so. When you take it to the shop they ck engine and reset the engine light indicator. Just a safety feature.

Check your under hood fuses. There are separate fuses for high and low beams, and sometimes left and right. If this is not the case, then check the connector itself to see if any of the contacts are pulled out or corroded. Beyond that, you will have to consult a reputable mechanic. Best of luck!
