Electronic Stability Control Trouble Code ?

Has anyone had problems with their Stability Control Malfunction dash light staying on ? I went 4x4'ing this weekend pretty hard core and it came on, but can't figure out how to turn it off...checked for trouble codes and found none...wonder if it's a OEM hard code in the computer ? If so, do I have to take it to the dealer to clear ? and what if it happens again ?

Check your wheel sensors and wires, could be one or more of them went bad or was damaged.

What year?

The newer JKs have a sensor linked to the steering so if you hit something hard enough to mis-align your steering center, the Jeep thinks it's in a skid so your traction control dash light will be on and your ABS will activate when you wouldn't expect it to.

Thankfully it's an easy fix with a ProCal if that's the problem.
