Customer Question
2012 jeep wrangler sport...

2012 jeep wrangler sport. Engine light is on. Tried to reset doing the on/off thing, but no codes. Retightened the gas cap also.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you seen this code before? Have you tried a hard reset?

There is no code and no, did not try a hard reset. Do not know what a hard reset is.

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

Trying to. Tried the on/off 3 times to get a code, but no code came up.

Next step is having codes checked with a scantool which you can have done at your local parts store for free. Then write codes down and let me know what they are. Thanks.
