Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
If you have a digital odometer(mileage) you can access your OBD also known as the onboard diagnostic ll by turning your key to the on (NOT start) position WHILE holding in on your mileage/trip reset button. Your vehicle ID number may show up first by watching your tachometer needle point to numbers on your indicator panel. Then it will point to any codes. I believe this is a 3 part code then a pause. Example: Tach needle points to: 2 then 4 then 7 the code is 247. (PAUSE) if other codes come up it will do the next ones as well. Sometimes, you have to click your igntion key on and off 3 times then hold in on your trip reset button. This may or may not reveal all codes. I use a scan tool most of the time. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Could be one of several items...I'd check the fuel pump relay, auto shutdown relay and the ignition switch itself. I'd bet on it being one of those relays but, we all have been fooled at least once!!! I'd also make sure that body and engine grounding is good and clean. Relays can't work properly without a good ground.

That code is related to an oxygen sensor failure (or wiring problem) Many times though the code is set by the sensor not because it has failed but because it is reading a mixture in the exhaust that is beyond its ability to read. Therefore, to avoid replacing the sensor and still having the same problem when you are finished it is essential that you check the remainder of the system paying close attentions to somewhat out of range items which aren't bad enough to set a code, but together, throw the control system off enough to cause a problem. Not only sensors need testing but the ignition coil, plug condition and vacuum system/vapor recovery need to be right in order for everything to be working correctly.(pretty much anything that can change how well the fuel is being used in the engine) I know it takes time and patience to do all this but that is what any competent shop will do so you are not back there the next day!!! Most testing can be done using a digital multi-meter and a haynes or chiltons manual as a guide reference. And of course, before you begin, do check the values of the O2 sensor as well.
