I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 95,000 miles. About a year ago my malfunction indicator light came on for the first time and I got worried. Took it to the dealer they found nothing wrong and turned off the light. Since then it has come on two more times roughly every 10,000 miles but now I ignor it and after a few days it goes off bt itself. Should I be concerned? Even with the light on, everything runs normal, no problems. Think maybe the dealers want to sell me some useless pollution garbage?

My guess is the oil change indicator is setting the MIL light off. This article should help...

I doubt that, I change my oil and oil filter at every 3,500 miles. I have that programed in my overhead counsel service schedule. Although my wife reminded me that the last time that warning light went on was after I shut my cruise control off during our last trip. It stayed on for the rest of the day but did not come on the following day.

Sounds like you have it figured out then. Good luck.
