Jeep Cherokee XJs are some of the most sophisticated Jeeps on the road today. While you may enjoy all of the bells and whistles, those gadgets and nice additions have to be maintained. This includes systems that run and monitor the exhaust, cooling, fuses, onboard diagnostic systems, and brakes. The systems that are used in XJs can vary from one year to the next, so you’ll have to make sure that you refer to the proper year, make, and model of your XJ so that the calibrations and ratings listed are correct. While it is a good idea to take your Jeep into a qualified mechanic to have the Jeep’s computerized parts inspected, with the proper instrumentation, you can also do it yourself. Jeep Cherokees have dashboard alert systems that will let you know if something has malfunctioned or is in danger of exceeding limits. In most cases, you will have to reset the perform service light manually, once it comes on.
