How to fix Jeep throttle body trouble codes

First, check the condition of the throttle plate in the electronic throttle body. Does it move freely? Is it stuck? If so, does it have carbon buildup or is it stuck mechanically?

If you find carbon buildup, a throttle body cleaning is in order.

But here’s the warning: after cleaning the throttle body, you must perform a throttle body relearn procedure and you need a scan tool to do that. If you clean the throttle body and don’t have access to a scan tool to do a throttle body relearn procedure, you may have a high, low or surging idle as the throttle body tries to find a new home position.
