Re: orange engine light came up

Take it up to your local auto part store and have them scan it to pull a code number or switch your ignition on and off (don't start the car) i believe 5 or 6 times and the digital odometer will flash the code number and then go from there. With out a code for the issue there is no knowing what's wrong.

Re: orange engine light came up

I donīt know if the odometer will show the codes switching the ignition 5-6 times.
It should work however switching the ignition switch three times OFF/ON and leave it in ON at the third time. The odometer will show you the code(s) one at a time and DONE when ready. When no faults stored, it will show DONE right away.
Let us know what you get and if there was any strange behaviour of the jeep, which could help in the trouble shooting.
And maybe that we could help you out, but since you have a WK jeep, you better can ask in the WK section, where they have the expertise on this type.
