Hot Oil and ESC light

I have had the Hot Oil and ESC light come on in my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I turned the jeep on and off and it cleared. The issue happened two more times that day before I noticed the coolant was low. I refilled the coolant and the issue seemed to be resolved. I should also say that I only drive two miles to and from work on paved roads each day. Two week after the first issue it happened again. I turned the car off and on and the issue cleared. I've seen the same two lights 3 times since the first issue all times its just a one off and the lights cleared. Also there are no codes showing and the engine check light is not coming on. I've been monitoring the trans temp, coolant temp, and oil pressure and all seem fine. One time I was only 100 yards from the house when the issue happened and another time I was sitting parked with the engine running for about 20 minutes and it happened. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Could be a faulty sensor perhaps.. as I don't see how the oil could get hot enough in that short of a drive.. Do you have 4x4 shop near you your trust to look it over vs a dealer which might charge way more?

How many miles? Have you checked the transmission fluid level? When was the last time you serviced the transmission?

82k on it. I’ve only had it for a year and a half. Not sure when then trans fluid was last changed. The engine oil cooler housing was replaced in feb under warranty. Trying to find a good 4x4 shop. It does have an extended 7 year powertrain warranty.
