So I just bought my 2018 Jeep wrangle sport JL in April 2021 and I had for about 6 weeks then this starting happening. I took to Jeep certified dealership, they had for 2 weeks changed the ABS module twice during that time. (Idk why twice) Had home for 5 days and all the lights came back on. And this time I even lost my power steering. Has anyone had this problem and what should I suggest to have them look at. Goes back in tomorrow to try to figure out the problem now.

Batteries going bad can do some crazy stuff. Are yours original?

I'm not sure if it's original or not. The voltage says 14.3 on the battery now just checked

That just means your alternator is operating. A fully charged battery without the alternator on will be around 12.6V. Note, you have a smaller aux battery under the PDC that could also be an issue.

I am also getting the dashboard message that my Electronic Stabilty Control function is not working. My jeep has 3,000 miles and cost more than a Lexus. The dealer told me they won’t even look at the issue because I installed a tow bar to tow it behind an RV. They said I voided my warranty even though a major National company installed the tow bar. I am fed up. They can take this 2021 jeep and shove it.

Your dealership sucks but your attitude isn’t helping things.

Your dealer is wrong. Reach out to @JeepCares And your dealer will likely have a significant change of heart quite quickly. Or, in the alternative, find a dealer that actually won’t lie to you.

your ESC issue may be related to a vacuum pump issue. Mine was.

Hello All, I have been having the same problem with my 2021 JL with, I have been having this same problem for 10 month this year (2021) the dealership would give me a dear in the headlights look, the first 3 times I took it off in for repair. I called Jeep customer care, not a lot of help, but the California Lemon law, Seemed to help them dig deeper they say that they have found the problem, replacing two cable assembly. One of the cables will not be in stock until January 2022. So my Jeep will have in the shop for about 5 months. This is Jeep Warranty repair for you.
Lemon law replacement my be my only option.
