Retrieving Jeep DTC OBD Codes

A chart showing all OBD I codes for Jeep vehicles.
This method is used to retrieve OBD I and OBD II diagnostic trouble codes from your YJ, TJ, XJ, ZJ, and early WJ Jeep models.

  1. Insert the key into the ignition
  2. Turn the ignition On-Off-On-Off-On within 5 seconds
  3. Record the 2-digit DTC as displayed by the flashing MIL
 I.E. - DTC 24 will be displayed by 2 flashes, short pause, and then 4 more flashes.  If more than one code is stored, there will be a longer pause before the next code is displayed.

11

No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking. Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor.

12

Positive battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 Key-on cycles.

13

No difference recognized between the engine MAP reading and the barometric (atmosphere) pressure reading from start-up.

14

MAP sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. 5 volt output to MAP sensor open.

15

No vehicle speed sensor signal detected during driving load conditions.

17

Engine did not reach operating temperature within acceptable limits

21

Upstream oxygen sensor response slower than minimum required switching frequency.

Upstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction.

Downstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction.

Downstream oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating range.

Oxygen sensor voltage too low, tested after cold start. (Upstream or Downstream)

Left oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating temperature.

22

Engine coolant temperature sensor above or below acceptable voltage.

23

Intake air temperature sensor input above or below acceptable voltage.

24

Throttle position sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. TPS signal does not correlate to MAP sensor.

25

A shorted or open condition detected in one or more of the idle air control motor circuits. Actual idle speed does not equal target idle speed.

27

Injector #1 thru 6, or any combination of individual injectors driver does not respond properly to the control signal.

31

An open or shorted condition detected in the A/C clutch relay circuit. Insufficient or excessive vapor flow detected during fuel evaporation emission system operation.

33

An open or shorted condition detected in the duty cycle purge solenoid circuit. (A/C clutch relay circuit)

34

An open or shorted condition detected in the Speed Control vacuum or vent solenoid circuits. Speed control switch input below the minimum acceptable voltage.

37

Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement. An open or shorted condition detected in the torque converter part throttle unlock solenoid control circuit. Incorrect input state detected for the Park/Neutral switch. Auto only.

41

An open or shorted condition in the generator field control circuit.

42

An open or shorted condition detected in the auto shutdown relay circuit. An open condition detected in the ASD relay output circuit. An open or shorted condition detected in the fuel pump relay control circuit. An open circuit between PCM and fuel gauge sending unit. Circuit shorted to voltage between PCM and fuel gauge sending unit. No movement of fuel level sender detected.

43

Peak primary circuit current not achieved with maximum dwell time. Misfire detected in one or more cylinders 1 thru 6. (4 and 6 cyls.)

44

Battery temperature sensor in voltage above or below acceptable range.

46

Battery voltage sense input above target charging voltage during engine operation.

47

Battery voltage sense input below target charging during engine operation. Also, no significant change detected in battery voltage during active test of generator output circuit.

51

A lean air/fuel mixture has been indicated by an abnormally rich correction factor.

52

A rich air/fuel mixture has been indicated by an abnormally rich correction factor.

53
