Jeep was stuck on icy driveway during the blizzard of the year, tried in 4low to break free.
Driving the next day (a block drive at 10 mph), traction control was off, could not turn on. Odometer display ESCOFF. 4wd icon flashing. Moving 2Ed/4wd/4low switch no change. Half hour later, restarted vehicle, diff select switch seemed to function, ESCOFF still displayed.
Driving today, normal commute, selector switch in 2wd, neither the 4x4 or 4low indicators were flashing OR solid. Vehicle felt like there was a lot of resistance. Slowed to 20mph, activated hill descent control, it was operational. Jeep was in 4low with switch in 2wd and no visual indicator. I backed up, placed hear selector to neutral, then ran through 2wd to 4low and back. Into drive, 4low disengaged and traction control again functional.
What happened! I am a 4x4 rookie - this is definitely a different experience than my fulltime AWD Explorer.
