Re: maintenance reminder light
If this is the same module that was in my 88 YJ, which it may not be, it's VERY EASY to reset this light. Mine was a brown-colored tinted like box stuck just above the gas pedal, with a bunch of gears and stuff inside. I forget which side of the box the hole is on, but there is a small sticker (mine was silver) over the hole, and inside is a little metal finger that runs on a wheel. All you have to do is stick a pin or something in the hole, and move the little finger back onto the other (timer-start) side of the wheel. It's very very very simple. Once you take the timer box out of the jeep and examine it, you will see how it all works.
Of course, you can just leave it out, like I did, or you can reset it, and put it back in. Up to you. Or just unplug the connectors on the box and be done with it. I'm not sure if the injection system uses this signal for anything, with the check engine light, but on the carbed YJ, it should work like that.
Again, this was in my 88 - not sure about the newer injected jeeps. Might be similar.
Good luck - and remember: Chicks are not impressed by a guy who puts electrical tape over the light. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
