Search this forum. You'll find exactly what you want.

Its turning the key back and forth without turning over the motor. I don't remember the exact sequence, so searching will be your best bet.

You'll also find a list of things that go with each code.

turn the key on off on off on then leave it in the on position wait like 5 seconds and it will start giving you the codes. your best bet would be to buy a book for the jeep at an auto parts store, they are cheap and really help out when you dont know what your doing. the book lists all the codes and what could possibly be causing them. it even tells you how to check all your sensors with a volt meter if you have one so that way your not having to spend a bunch of money replacing stuff thats not broken.

If you are talking about the vehicle listed in your avatar its because your truck is OBD-II which is a standardized system, unlike OBD-I.

You can't do what you did with most OBD-I vehicles.
