Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer!

Is the 8th VIN digit of your Jeep an S, J, or N?

This code actually means the engine stays cold too long. This could be caused by extremely cold weather, malfunctioning ECT sensor, or a thermostat that does not let the engine warm up.

Here is what I have on it out of the factory service manual.

If youneed anything else, just let me know.
