While driving the uconncet...

While driving the uconncet system updated. Immediately after the upgrade the engine malfunction light came on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Not a problem. You can work with the Jeep Mechanic to figure that out. What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2014 jeep Cherokee, latitude with 42,000 miles. Just had the TCM replaced last week.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Too scared to touch it. Was planning to take it to the dealer. I am traveling.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not at this time.

HI,

Ok, do the following -

Within 5 seconds turn the key in the ignition on-off-on-off-on, leaving in the on position(position just before cranking). Now look at the odometer and fault codes should scroll across as Pxxxx codes, example P0740

Do this and let me know the codes. Sometimes it will take a couple of tries to get them
