ESC light comes on had jeep 1 day

Hey all...brand new to the jeep fam. Coming from an Audi A6 V8. Loved the Audi but really love the jeep...

So anyway I just picked my 2012 jeep wrangler unlimited sahara up from the dealer and the ESC light is on, 88 total miles. It turned on the first time last night then was off this morning then going around a turn on my way home from work it came back on. I searched the forum for answers but I only found 1 post that just said take it to the dealer, which I plan on doing, but any one else have this problem and is it even a problem???

Thanks for ur help

IIRC someone posted about a similar problem with a 2012, I'm not sure where though. Maybe someone else will remember. Either way take it back to the dealer.

The warranty is your friend. Embrace it.

FWIW, mine came on within 24 hours of having it. I don't remember if I posted it or not. It would flash when going over big bumps on the highway and kick the cruise control off. Our roads suck.

Mine came on too. It stayed in for a whole day and then started turning on and off randomly with no apparent rhyme or reason. I took it in and the sensor was bad. 2012 JKU Sahara as well.

I had the ESC light come on several times. When I have the cruise control on, the ESC light seems to cancel out the CC.

Took it into the dealership. They replaced the ESC module for me.

Now I still have the damn light coming on randomly as I'm just driving down the road (the actual speeds (slow or fast) don't seem to make a difference.

Sometimes restarting the Jeep will fix it, sometimes, it stays on for the entire day.

Would love to know how someone has fixed this problem!

Have them check the wiring. My 2010 did the same thing and there was a short in the wiring.
