Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

The first thing we need to do is see what fault codes are setting. Cycle the key from off to on three times ending with it on and watch the digital odometer display. Don't crank the starter, just off to on. The codes start with a P and have four numbers, there may be more than one stored. Write down any that you see and post them here.

OK, I DID THE KEY THING, AND NOTHING SHOWED UP ON THE ODOMETER EXCEPT THE MILEAGE....I TRIED THIS SEVERAL TIMES, SO I DONT KNOW IF I AM JUST DUMB, OR IF THERE WASNT ANYTHING TO SHOW UP...
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

Even if there are no codes stored it will still give you a message if this is done correctly. Get in and close the doors. Put the key in and turn it one click forward. This is off. One click forward of that is on. Start with it off and go on, off, on, off, on and the odometer will change. REmember to not crank the starter, just off to on.

 

HERE is a short video I made showing the process.
