Thumbs down Weird ..

I've only owned my 2010 JK for a few weeks and I've had the same issue while driving, twice. I'll start to accelerate to pass someone or switch lanes and all of a sudden the Jeep kicks real hard, loses all braking, continues to accelerate despite having let off of all pedals and the steering also seems to go. Both times I've been lucky enough to find a wide enough parking lot I can attempt to crookedly steer it into it but it doesn't seem to want to stop. I had to stand on the brake tonight and it was still kicking... I finally shut it off, and it came back on with a loud thud or knock sound and also the lightning bolt on my dash which disappeared after a few seconds. Has anyone had experience with a similar issue or could even help me brainstorm a few ideas as to what it could possibly be ?

Specifically have you reprogrammed your PCM/ECU in any way? That is the only element to braking, steering, auto shifting and engine.

Disconnect your negative battery cable, and leave it off for about 10 minutes.
Now try it again, (in a safe area), and see if you still have the issue.
If you do, then this is a serious Safety issue, and you would be better off, to have it towed into your Dealer, for analysis!!!!!!!!!

I've personally never done anything to it... but I've found various little modifications by the pervious owner so I'm not fully sure what all they actually did to it.

Crazy.... I read your post and about 10 minutes later my fiancé called me. She is driving our 2014 JKRU today and she said she was on the highway and saw an orange light came on and it seems like the vehicle lost control for a couple seconds. She said it seemed like it jerked and lost control of acceleration. I thought it might be the antislip. I did hit the button the other day for the first time when the car was stopped.
