Please help

I am about to drive for Christmas, and a light just came on in my car. All dealerships are obviously closed, and calling Jeep did nothing. I took a picture of the light that came on. Hoping anyone can help me, I don't want to drive my car if this could be something major.

Re: Please help

Can you attach the picture or describe the light?

They are all shown towards the front of your User's Guide hopefully still in your glovebox.

Re: Please help

I keep attaching it and its not showing up, probably because I'm on my phone. realized it's my check engine light. All the temps on my car are fine, every dealership is closed. I might just risk it :/

Re: Please help

Most auto parts stores will do a courtesy OBD II read of codes for you if any open near you

Re: Please help

Unless the check engine light is flashing, it's usually safe to drive. Stop by your local auto parts store and have them read it just to make sure.

Re: Please help

Nothing is open, but Jeep was open- they actually called me back and did some diagnostics. They think it might be something with the sensors and humidity bc it's raining so bad here and I then parked my car in the garage. Fortunately, my father owns a construction company, so I'm going to take one of his trucks just to be safe.

PS does my first check engine light officially make me a Jeep owner?

Hope not as I have two 2013 JGCs and neither has ever had a CEL and my '97 wrangler only had a check engine light when the torque converter started to fail after 125,000 miles, but glad to hear dealership called you back and you have backup vehicle options

Why yes, it does! You accumulate them like badges of honor.

You're fine driving it as long as the light isn't flashing.

Amazes me how people buy $40k Jeeps and not a $16 dongle and software to monitor the engine/diagnostics.

I've got a old reliable/ down and dirty Actron Pocketscanner that will read and erase codes, my Diablosport Tuner that can allow me to get myself into more trouble than I should and a wifi dongle that puts a wealth of information at my fingertips while driving using DashCommand.

But you're right most people see a CEL and blindly rely on a mechanic to tell them what's going on with their vehicle.
