Re: lil mmore detail
The device will read codes, but the scan tool is also used to check parameters of the engine while running and will notice problems inside the engines computer which don't always show up ie the check engine light. if the engine isn't running it will also check for current or past issues.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

read on the side of the battery the rating for it (voltage -amperage-and any other details and take them to an electronic shop like Jaycar and find the charger for the batteries. Or have the details on hand and go to E-bay and find a charger that matches what you have.
one more thing to check after going through all this stuff, which actually these guys seem to have a wealth of knowledge on. seriously. jeep for some reason has a notorious situation that so many mechanics and enthusiasts miss. .. it took me 3 weeks to figure this stupid mess out for my x's daughter, who hates me by the way, but i do it because i'm a nice guy. try the cam sensor. sounds silly i know. but i see it more and more as being the answer to all these mysteriousness ailments to these hard running jeeps. my daughter is getting ready to drive and wouldn't you know it she wants a grand cherokee. lol. I have an 87 yj. but its a weekend mustang killer. and i luv to stomp tuners on the highway. its on youtube. got a lil sbc, with a t-5 borg warner hybrid shorty, 1,2,3, fast throw, 4,5. way long. 4:11 rear with detroits. not 4wd. its so fun. had to put upper and lower lakeside drag bars. but anyway..... :) cam sensor give it a thought. sometimes 1 and 2 banks are hard to differentiate for some reason when reading codes. still trying to figure that one out.???
Your vehicle's engine emission system is monitored by the On-board Diagnostic (OBD) computer.
Misfires can be caused by any number of circuits ranging from MAP, TPS, HO2, Injectors, Vaccuum leaks....and so on.....and so on.....
The misfire you speak of will have triggered the appropriate fault codes which will be stored in memory. As there could be numerous causes for this condition, you really should have your codes read by your local dealership.
Checking for fault codes only takes 15-25mins (depending on experience of the technician), and will quickly identify the suspected circuit/s.
Limp mode can be activated by many things to numerous to list here so, if possible can you get a local mechanic to hook up an OBD lead to the ECU (computer thingy!) of the car and read the fault code.
From this reading he/she will be able to determine what has caused limp mode activation and depending what it is reset/cancel limp mode.
Gettin a fault code reading is quick and cheap to do, (even from the dealership!) and at least you will have more information to determine what is best thing to do next...
Hope this helps and good luck.
well with a check engine light on you really should have it brought somewhere to read the codes stored in your computer it dont make sense to guess at what the code or problem is,since there are several,several codes.it may be a 02 sensor,a evap code,i think a few of the auto parts places have code readers and read for free.
if it runs ok leave well alone ,the actuator control is the thingy on the throttle linkage on the butterfly spindle on the inlet manifold.This wouldnt cause a flat battery ,,,,,more like your mrs left the lights on
go to your nearest vauxhall dealership and take your security card with your cars details. they will order you a new key and code it. if you do not have your security pass go to the dealership you bought it from and they should have the cars details
