Jeep Liberty 2006 - Check engine light flashes when starting and then stays on solid after gaining some speed. When the engine is off for a period of time, like overnight, it starts normally and the check engine light does not flash. However, if the engine is off for a short period of time the check engine light flashes and then remains on. Also, it does not happen every time but about half the time. When this happens the engine hesitates and shakes until the check engine lights stops flashing.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee 8 cylinder, My "check engine" Light wont come on. Truck runs, then shuts down. I try to check the codes, Turn on, turn off, on, off, on. I get nothing. No check engine light at all. After I disconnect the battery for awhile, It starts' right up. When I check the codes again, all the comes up is code 12, (Battery disconnected from PCM within last 50 starts). Will a "Crank-Sensor" work, then not, then work again? Could that make the "check engine" light not come on? The
A failing crank sensor sometimes won't set a code, but it will not prevent the check engine light from coming on.I'd test it with an ohmeter both hot and cold just to make sure it's good, but think your problem is likely to be a connection betw ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

A few weeks ago i installed a air intake and flowmaster muffler on my 99 jeep cherokee. after i took the stock muffler off i realized i needed some wire for my welder so i drove the jeep without a muffler during the trip my check engine light came on. i installed the muffler disconnected the battery and check engine light went off. the next day it came on again a few days later my speedometer, odometer, and gas gage quit working. had an obd2 scanner check for codes and found out rear o2 sensor

My 1994 Jeep Wrangler: Upon starting the Jeep, the check engine light has been coming on. Sometimes it is on upon starting the engine and sometimes it will not come on until a few miles or so down the road. On two occasions the Jeep went completely dead, i.e. no battery charge. Upon charging the battery the jeep ran, but it happened again so I had the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and ignition rotar replace. The jeep is running a bit smoother, but the engine light still came on

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler with a 6 cylinder engine. The check engine light came on so I went to AutoZone and they said the code indicated a #6 cylinder misfire. I changed all the plugs, restarted the engine and the light remained on. I don't have any of the symptoms (rough running, poor fuel, poor acceleration, etc.) that indicate other issues. So how do I clear the check engine light. Thanks John M

My 2005 Jeep Liberty v6 3.7L 4x2 (Basic base model) check engine light came on and my car mileage is 90,100 miles but I did not pay attention if it came on at 90k. My gas cap also was lost a few days ago but again did not pay attention if that caused the engine light. I went to autozone and bought a locking gas cap (stunt I think was the name). I replaced it and light still on. I was just wondering what else should I consider with this check engine light that just came on.
Give the computer a day or two to recognize the new gas cap and turn off the light. If it doesn't go off, your best bet is to visit a parts store and have them scan the computer for you to determine the cause of the light. Auto Zone and several oth ... 2005 Jeep Liberty
