Why does the ignition light on my 2001 jeep Cherokee 3.7 auto stay on


Which ignition light? There are a number of warning lights on the instrument panel.
It could be the charge indicator, which could mean a bad alternator. Does the battery run down? Check voltage on the battery. If more than 13.8 volts while the engine is running, alternator is OK. Less than that, overhaul the alternator.
It could be the MIL (maintenance Indicator lamp / engine check light) which means the car is due for a service. The light can be turned off by a mechanic, or you could get a DTC reader on ebay and turn it off yourself if you're happy the service is up to date.
It could be the brake indicator light, which could mean either the handbrake is not fully released, or the brake fluid level is low, or the brake pads are worn down. Just some possibilities, give more information.

The service light w/a wrench symbol is on . What does it mean?


Hi there,

This is merely the "Service Due Indicator" which means your vehicle has travelled the mileage interval (typically 7,500 miles/10,000km), since it was last reset at the previous service.

Refer to your handbook on how to reset the Service Indicator (usually by holding the odometer button down for around 10sec's).


Cheers,

Scott

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

Maintenance light turn orange. I bought the car 2 months ago. It was green when I buy it. After travelling for about 900 km it turns to orange. I don't have the manual. I dont know what it means. What...


hi there
When the car is near 12,000km since the last service,the indicator will turn yellow,if it exeeds 12,000km it will turn red.
To clear it switch the ignition on.
Reset service indicator by inserting key or another similar object of the same size into the slot below the indicator.
The service lamp will cancel the indicator for the next 12,000km.
I hope this helps you.
