    the system is alerting you that there is an issue, communicating with the onboard computers is done with a SCANNER. Sorry without knowing those codes I can't advise.

    What about the light under 'P' park gear indicator? How long has that light been on?

    the description of the lamps is in your owners manual - there will be a test on the manual.

    I have had it scanned multiple times I’ve been just told it’s electronic throttle body, the light under the p is the check engine light, anytime I’ve scanned it at advanced auto they get deleted for some reason.

    They shouldn't erase the code without your permission as removing the code won't fix the problem. My suggestion is to try a different Autozone/Advance and post ALL the codes here for internet analysis.

    Welcome @Pinkyp224 . I'm sure there's a member or 2 that can help. Not necessarily me. Lolllo.
    But as mentioned. The codes will help. Big time.
    On the positive side. If your Jeep is not running like shit. It's usually a sensor and or something stupid. So don't dig that hole for your Jeep just get. Hang in there.

    I don't want to lecture but some information-

    I said I was sorry I could not help, now TMI, and same conclusion. BUT I want to help as best I can.

    I now see more info and the dealings with advance auto.
    The light I asked about (CEL). Advance auto did a scan they may have gotten a code - hopefully you copy them ALL down. It is likely they could NOT get all the codes as the tool they have is NOT a professional scanner ($$$$)and can not communicate with all the modules -computers- in your jeep.
    They then turned off the CEL? this erases a lot of data BUT keep in the back of your mind you cant erase all codes from the systems memory ($10), big brother.
    POSITIVE thinking, the erase was a fresh look a second opinion, and the same results the lights, SO we know this is not a one time 'glitch' of temporary out of tolerance but a hard fail somewhere -

    CONCLUSION - I suggest a visit to your jeep dealer OR a competent repair shop, but as you do not have a relationship with one and adding another task to this concern i suggest the dealer.

    Good move as the Cherokee is bigger, safer vehicle and has a better reputation. If you keep vehicles beyond 3yr it might be best to consider extended warranties due to less than stellar FCA reliability concerns and uncle that's too busy to assist. Today's vehicles are loaded with electronics and getting more challenging to repair.
