Yj \"service reqd\" light

"Service reqd" light, is there a quick reset. My yj has been maintained, i just don't want to pay some kid to plug it into a computer to tell me what the problem is. I think i have a bad o2 sensor ( my freeze plug leaked on it for some time). I tried to do the on/off key thing- no luck. Anyon [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]e have any ideas?

Re: Yj \"service reqd\" light

1. There's a timer that comes on at multiples of 80,000 miles to
2. Warn you to check your Emissions...
3. Usually it's not a problem...
4. How's the Jeep running?

Re: Yj \"service reqd\" light

1. My guess... it's the Emissions Reminder.
2. There's two ways of turning it off.[*]Drilling a hole and resetting the box [*]Swapping the Box.
3. I've got the drilling directions Somewhere...
4. But I can't promise I'll be able to fine 'em.

Re: Yj \"service reqd\" light

That would be cool if you could find out how to drill and reset that box. If you can't find it i will just have to look into replacing it. Thank you for your help, you always seem to know. Time to put the Jeep in the garage before it tries to become a hot tub again ( thunder storms) . At least it's hot! [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]

JEEP

1988-90 CHEROKEE, COMANCHE, WAGONEER & WRANGLER

Service Reminder Indicator (SRI)

Vehicles are equipped with SRI on instrument cluster. This light will come on one time at 82,500 miles to alert driver that emission service is required. At this time, oxygen sensor and PCV valve must be replaced and all other emission components should be inspected, and serviced or replaced as necessary.
SRI timer is located under dash, near accelerator pedal or to right of steering column. Timer cannot be reset. To turn off light, timer must be replaced or disconnected. Since timer and sensor are interdependent, if timer should fail prematurely, oxygen sensor should be replaced at same time to preserve correct replacement interval.
To replace timer on Cherokee, Comanche and Wagoneer models, remove cruise control module (if equipped). Remove timer mounting screws. Disconnect electrical connector. On Wrangler models, remove timer mounting screws. Disconnect electrical connector. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Re:

Thank you for the good information. I figured i would need to replace those parts- the normal stuff-. I will add this to my quick growing knowledge of Jeep!






It's good to be a L-7.

Re:

Just unplug the bulb....
It's about as wothless as the light that tells you when to shift.
