i have a 98 4.0 zj and it has been running but i went out the other day and it wouldnt start. then the battery died and i charged it and the check engine light came on. i checked the code and it read something like idle speed malfunction. i was wondering what could be causing this thanks

Have you tried cleaning your Idle Air Control valve? I am not sure if that would trigger the check engine light or not, but it can keep the Jeep from starting if it is really dirty.
