sorry for the delay...........
The Radio typically would have nothing to do with the Check Engine Light "unless" there was a DATA stream issue
With the Check Engine Light ON, you need to have the Vehicle Scanned for "Trouble Codes" prior to any Repairs.
Many Auto Parts Stores will do this for FREE & give you a list of Trouble Codes found & their meanings.
This will help you decide the best course of action.
"IF" there is NO Trouble Codes found, then use of Dealer Scan Tool is needed to Scan, Test & Program the different Modules that may have caused the issue (DATA)
Could be a simple DATA Update, which Jeep sends to Dealers from time to time.

that was common information, you did not ask me for any further information.Also, estimated time for a respone was 8 minutes...and the response time was 3.5 hours
Jeep Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Mechanic replied 1 month ago

Sorry your question was not answered in the advertised time........apparently there was no one on in the Jeep category
I answer when I see them........
I do NOT need further info, as you posted that the "Check Engine Light" was ON
NO ONE can tell you what is wrong, without the Trouble Codes that the Computer would show with a simple "FREE" Scan
Diagnostic Trouble Codes or OBD2 Trouble Codes are codes that the car’s OBD system uses to notify you about an issue.

Each code corresponds to a fault detected in the car. When the vehicle detects an issue, it will activate the corresponding trouble code.
A vehicle stores the trouble code in it’s memory when it detects a component or system that’s not operating within acceptable limits.

The code will help you to identify and fix the issue within the car.

My answer was correct & to the point..........
Sorry you did not know how the site works.
We have no control over the time the question is answered or Refunds
We are independent & do not work for Just Answer

thanks
