Jeep is known for producing off road SUVs with two doors, however the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a more luxurious off road SUV, produced with five doors. The 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee is produced with an anti-lock braking system, also known as ABS brakes. When the anti-lock braking system light or ABS light turns on at the Grand Cherokee's dashboard, an OBD II scan tool is needed to turn it off. You can purchase an OBD II scan tool from most auto parts shops.
