P2098 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Understanding and Troubleshooting the Code

Welcome to our latest diagnostic session where we will be addressing a check engine light issue on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The customer has informed us that they have replaced all the sensors and suspect that the computer might need an update. To address this, we will be using a diagnostic tool called Way Tech.

First, we need to ensure that the device is connected to the car. Once connected, we check the subscription status and log in using Google Authentication for access to Tech Authority subscription.

Upon gaining access, we proceed to check for any updates for the engine computer. However, there are no available updates, and we only find diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) related to downstream fuel trim and active steering wheel trim. Additionally, there are no functions related to exhaust or inter-cleaning present on this car.

After reviewing the diagnostic trouble codes, we attempt to clear them, but unfortunately, they persist, indicating a fault with the computer. Specifically, the codes 2096 and 2096 remain unresolved, suggesting potential issues with the computer unit itself.

Considering these findings, it is possible that the computer in the car may be faulty, and further investigation or replacement may be necessary.

Thank you for joining this diagnostic session. Stay tuned for more automotive insights and troubleshooting.
