2018 jk hot oil, engine, and skid lights on

I just turned on my jeep and the hot oil warning was flashing. The car skid light was also on, and then a few seconds later the engine light came on. I didn't drive it at all today, it was just sitting in my driveway. It is hot, at 86 degrees, but I've never had that happen before. There's only about 10k miles on it, and I recently had it serviced before driving cross country and they said everything was fine. Any ideas?

Check the transmission fluid, low, burnt,

With the check engine light, what codes are being thrown?

I don't know the engine codes, I am not good with cars! Im having it towed to the dealership tomorrow. But, I just went to check the transmission fluid and tried to turn it on and it won't start. Doesn't turn over at all. What the hell!

Code reader is one of the best tools I've bought. Let's me know what I might be in for before I get to the dealer and it's easy to use.

Best of luck at the dealer and let us know...

No whining now...

Just a hint
Look under hood for loose battery terminals or any loose ground terminals.

^this

The terminals Jeep uses are crap. Replaced my ground. Completely gorilla tightened, the FCA one just rocked back and fourth. Lights all come on but won't start until I replaced it, then all fine. I think I spent $7 for 2 of them at Auto Zone.

The transmission fluid (car was off) was above hot. Strange. Thanks everyone!
