    Chrysler engine codes - from the late 1990s and up

    Sometimes you can get computer codes by turning the key on OFF and then rapidly do OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON (on some cars you have to do four or five, not three, OFF-ON cycles). Other times, you may just have to connect a OBD scanner.

    For the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and up, you do the switching the key on and off 3 times, but not quickly. You turn it to on so the odometer turns on, turn it off, and then back on, wait for the light to turn on, etc. On the fourth time you'll get a code, or you'll get the word "done."

    Here is a list of Chrysler computer codes:
