Jeep kept shutting off

First i would like to say i just took a 600 mile road trip this past weekend with my fiance' and we had a great time, i was very pleased with my jku's performance with ride comfort, gas mileage and overall performance. I start my day out monday morning i am a road salesmen on long island and the five boroughs of ny, i start making my way home and about every 5 min or so my engine would just cut off and this kept happening and happening as i was trying to get to the service dept which was about 10 miles from where i was. I drop off the jeep fuming and got the call last night saying there was a tip meter for safety in case the jeep overturns and it cuts the engine out. Thats what it was i just thought i would share to get it off my chest and in case anyone else has this problem that may be the answer....have a great hump day(wed) everybody

You sell roads? Do you have something in a nice smooth asphalt? Is concrete more expensive? Are those little markers extra or do they come included?

sweet, I lay down the pipe...
Jokes aside, interesting, I'm surprised that no lights came on, like the ESC ones.

Had a bank angle sensor fail in the FLHR, and I got to push it, ost of the way home before some old dude helped my puking as load it in his trailer and get it to the crib. Newfangled safety gizmos... but mine was a lot older than your sensor was. Weird.

Were they able to spot it with a meter, or how did they find out?
