After much BS from several dealers I have concluded that this does require a trip to the local dealership to have their little black box attached to the on board computer so that the lamps can be turned off. They call their black box a DRB "Diagnostic Reader Box". Before 1996 this is a DRBI which I believe was the precursor to the OBD systems that are currently used. The only dealer I talked with that knew what was causing the lamp to be on (talked with 3) wanted $45 to reset it (plus undisclosed sums for other things that they may find with their black box once they hook it up). I have personally elected to remove the bulb since it doesn't impact the operation of the engine.

(A different remedy is take it to an auto parts store. Most can diagnose the problem and reset the light. Those lights are there for a reason. By removing the bulb or ignoring it larger problems can occur. Machineryman)

The Maintenance Required Light is not the same as the Check Engine Light. The Maintenance Required Light is telling you that there is scheduled maintenance that needs to be performed. It may mean it needs an oil/filter change. To find out what needs to be done look at the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual.

It is a reminder to do preventative maintenance. It comes on after a required number of mules. Does not mean that there is a problem wirh the vehicle. You can use a key to push in the slots to reset to green.

There is a small black slot on the left of the guage cluster. Put your car key in there, it should reset the light!

Sorry, your question is not very clear; not sure what you need?

Go to an AutoZone. They have the little plug in boxthat checks your computer. Usually it's from stuff like piston mis-fires. They might be able to look at it and reset it. It might not go away imediatly, but it worked on mine.

Well sometimes requires a dianostic testor or unplug the positive side of battery wait then plug it back on. Just like rebooting a computer at home.

Take off the positive battery cable, whereas this is the power source for the vehicle. Leave the cable off for 30 minutes then place it back on. Once on, turn over the ignition so your radio, interior lights etc.. come on. Let it sit for 20 seconds, then start the vehicle. This should eliminate the maintenance light. If it comes back on within 10 minutes, you may want to have a computer diagnostics done on the vehicle; to look for faulty codes etc...

The Jeep Grand Cherokee did not exist until 1993.

Gotta see the Dealer for that, dude. It requires a special tool. When the light came on on my 1992 Cherokee, I tried everything & everyone. I ended up at the Dealer. Sorry!
