2000 Jeep Check Engine Light

When we start our 200 Jeep Cherokee the check enging light comes on. If we turn off the car after warming up and restart it, the check engine light does not come on. What can we do to fix this? Thanks

You can go to a mechanic or an auto parts store to get the codes read from the computer. The auto parts store might do this for free. I believe Autozone is one chain that will do this for free, but don’t hold me to that. Then you can come back here to tell us what the codes are. This might work better if you have it done while the check engine light is on.

That CEL (check engine light) is just a kid in class waving her hand trying to get you attention because she has the answer. You need to have the codes read. Some places will read them for FREE. Try Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts. Get the exact code (like P0123) not just their translation into English and post it back here.
