Customer Question
The ETC red bolt...

The ETC red bolt warning light is on and the check engine light. The engine runs rough. The Jeep only has 2000 miles on it. Just purchased in December

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It was solid but this morning it started blinking. I restarted the engine and it stayed solid again

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Jeep?

2018 wrangler jk sport

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Wrangler yourself? What have you tried so far?

I looked at the wires connecting the accelerator because it has to do with the ETC but they seem tight

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The traction warning light is coming on intermittently as well

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Do you have a scan tool? Have you scanned for codes? Is it under warranty?
