I am sending you a exploded view of the location of the service check connector, this is a two wire connector that can be jumped with a paperclip to access your trouble codes. To check the codes while ignition switch is off jump your two wire connector with a paperclip. Turn ignition switch on while watching your MIL lamp for the series of long and short flashes, the long flashes indicates the number in the 10s column. The number of short flashes indicates the number in the 1s column. For example, 4 long flashes followed by 3 short flashes would indicate DTC 43. I hope this will be of some help to you, good luck

My 1992 jeep cherokee laredo will start and stay running but wont charge the battery

An easy test to see if the alternator Is charging, is to place a paper clip against the rear bearing cup (the back of the alternator case in the center) While the engine is running, the paper clip will be attracted to the bearing if the alternator is good. Do not short the paper clip to any wire terminals to avoid a burn hazard. Be careful of rotating belt and pulleys.

My 1995 jeep grand cherokee has power starter is turning over but jeep wont start.

Please check if there is spark at the output of the ignition coil, situated on the left side (passenger side) of the engine.
1. Get a paper clip.
2. Remove coil wire from the distributor cap. Double check that the other end of the wire is firmly snapped onto the coil terminal
3. Place paper clip inside the loose coil wire end, making sure it makes contact with the coil wire conductor, and let it protrude from the end of the wire.
4. Using pliers with insulated handles, hold the end of the wire with he protruding clip ~3/8 in. from the terminal of the cap where you disconnected the coil wire,while an assistant turns the key for 3-4 seconds.
Caution: Stay clear of the fan and any rotating pulleys.
5. Is there a spark arcing from the coil wire paper clip to the terminal on the cap?
6. If so, what color?
7. It should be bright white in color.
8. If blue or orange, the coil may be at fault.
9. If no arc, the coil is bad.

There is a tool available at the auto parts storethat can be clipped onto the coil wire and it will indicate the condition of the of the coil output.

Vehicle turns over fine but will not start

Have you checked to see if there is spark at the plug wires? You pull one boot off of your spark plugs and stick a paper clip or something metal into the plug wire then have someone turn the engine over while you ground out the plug wire with the clip in it. See if there is any spark. Be careful not to touch the paper clip while they are turning the engine over or you might feel a slight shock. Did you happen to check to see if you had enough fuel pressure? I have the pressure reading you should have on your vehicle. Get back with me as to what you have tried or when you see if there is spark.

Check engine light comes on only sometimes and it on off again is there a code now or dose it have to stay on

No you should be able to pull it. You only need a paper clip to pull it of that
Finder the connector in this picture under the driver side of the dash. With the key in the on position but the engine NOT running put the paper clip in the A and B slot (top 2).
Now the code will blink through the engine light. The first code will be 13. 1 flash STOP and 3 flashs then STOP. It will do that 3 times. After nujmber 13 that will be the problem code.
Come back and post and I will help more.
