I was driving on an easy trail earlier today, but hit a bump or rut with some force. The jeep made a jeep, the ESC Malfunction and MIL Lights illuminated, and limp mode was enabled, or what I believe to be limp mode: power drops off in all gears at 3k.
I am going to the dealer tomorrow; just happened to have an appointment.
Any thoughts on what is going on.
My limited searching resulted in auto transmission limps.
I doubt there is any causal relationship, but:
1) Earlier today I pulled out a stuck F150. Low 1st easy pull, no jerking or other "violence."
2) Saturday I got stuck in sand down to the frame, and needed to be pulled out with a winch.
Closest I've had to that is just the ESC light coming on. I had forgotten to turn off traction control (I always do that when off road) that one time. A little while after I turned it off and continued the trail our group was on, the ESC light went away after I assume the Jeep decided things were ok now. It had never done that before or since so I assume I just freaked out the traction control system and it decided to throw a fit for a while. I didn't have the MIL come on though so that's weird. Interested as well to know what the problem is in the end.
