Electronic Stability Control
This is a nightmare...
I have a 2013 jku 5000 mi, 4" lift, 35's, and *3.23* gears
I went offroading for the first time on a friend's place where there were some hills, some small drops, nothing serious i thought. I never turned off the ESC (I don't know if i should have or not). At the very start, i went into a hole too fast, got stuck and four wheel drive got us out. I had to put it in four wheel drive a couple others times to get me out of a hole that i went into much slower. I got cocky and did a couple donuts (I am a dumb kid and I know). Sure enough the ESC (Electronic Stability Control) warning light started flashing and it hasn't gone off since. It is the only light on. In the manual it says something along the lines of "after driving several miles and the light remains on, take it to the dealership." Since then I've driven probably 50 mi.
I know I ought to take it by the dealer but my question is what should i be expecting? How serious? Is this the 3.23's coming back to haunt me? Is it possible there is no malfunction and the light will turn off any day now?
Any and all feedback is much appreciated.
