I think I messed up.... real bad
ok I was changing my EGR valve this morning and I just finished but now the jeep wont start. I disconnected the negative battery terminal before I did the EGR and I followed the how to thread on here and I thought everything went well. I reconnected the negative wire and the cheap wont start. The dash lights come on and the check engine light is on as well. The check engine light is solid for about 5 seconds then it flashes at me for probably 10 seconds. Does this mean its in limp mode? Its a 2005 with the 5.7. Please help

Re: I think I messed up.... real bad
Well i feel stupid now because everything worked out fine. I guess the battery just wasn't charged enough because I tried to jump start it but it wouldn't start so I just let it sit for about 10 minutes and when I tried starting it, it started right up. I just took it out for a drive and everything seems to be just fine. Sorry to waste a thread and thanks for the reply tom58
