Lights stay on no flashing (thank god) I’ve had that issue before and it was major mechanical failure of valves and injectors

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Before it would seem like a miss or rough running going up a big hill on interstate. Almost a blimp as far at time goes . Less than a secondThis evening when lights came on it ran rough the entire 4-5 miles test driving it on regular road. Well it was intermittent but many times te blimps happened and at a greater frequency

Ok just making sure the vehicle is not overheating , the most common issue that will cause the 4wd service light to come on and the etc light is faulty abs wheel speed sensor , now regarding the check engine light sine you stated that it felt like a mis which is the most common to trigger the check engine light you more then likely need new spark plugs they are very common to have fracture cracks on the porcelain and cause the misfire . i hope this helps . You will need to check the faults in the abs and ecm to make sure this is your issue . Please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank you
