Odd Loss of Power

At the end of my road there is a stop sign. A stop sign we have been to a million times. 99% of the time we turn right here. Yesterday was no different, and as I stepped on the accelerater to turn right, the engine power just died, and I noticed that the ESC light lit up on the dash. It was 80 degrees and sunny, so sign of snow or ice around, and certainly no chance of tipping the Jeep doing 1 mph around a corner.

Anyone else? Only time it happened, so I am not sure if it warrants a shop visit.

I would take it to your dealer, if it does occur again at least you'll have it on record. I have not had that happen.

Happened to me one day. The computer must have reset itself. I took it in and they couldn't fine it or a reading form the module.
