Electrcal nightmare

Just picked up my 2014 JKUR from the dealer today after a recent wreck. Fortunately no one was hurt. After 6 weeks and $12,000 later my jeep was finally ready. My Jeep was hit directly on the front left tire. The front axle was replaced along with most of the front suspension. The computer was replaced and the sway bar disconnect sensor. After driving about 10 miles the traction control light came on. About 2 miles later every light on the dash came on (check engine, low oil pressure, sway bar, lightning bolt?, and battery light). Also the headlights dimmed and radiator fan came on. I limped the last 2 blocks home. BTW what does the lightning bolt light mean? Is it a glow plug light for Diesel engines? Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

Ouch! Glad no one was hurt.

Is the battery connection ok? Battery charging? Alternator spent?

It's indicating a problem with your voltage. I didn't have all that go on but one thing that started happening when my battery was going out was the enging fan running almost all of the time.

Thanks for your help. Maybe voltage regulator?

If it were my Jeep, I'd check all the electrical connections, get the battery, voltage regulator and alternator checked in that order.

I'd take it back to the dealer, they just worked on it including parts of the electrical system.

I was hoping it was an easy fix like the battery terminals. If it was a simple as that then I wouldn't have to take the time off work and drive 30 minutes to fix it. I called the dealer yesterday and they arranged for a tow truck. When I got home from work it was finished. I was told that they had to reflash the computer. Thanks everyone for your help.
