How to Reset the Computer in a Jeep Cherokee
- 1). Find the Data Link Connector port next to the fuse panel under the driver's dashboard. Plug the computerized scan tool into this port.
- 2). Check the computerized scan tool's owner's manual on exactly how to clear the codes and reset the computer because each model is a little different. Most scan tools will have a "delete codes" command on the faceplate or within the menu that you can scroll to and select.
- 3). Delete all codes. This will reset the vehicle's computer. Unplug the scan tool.
- 4). Put the key into the ignition and start the vehicle. Verify that all warning lights and service lights have shut off on the instrument panel.
