Over the last couple of months I've noticed when the engine is cold on my 2016 Latitude that when accelerating the RPMs will drop briefly for a second then go back to its previous RPM. However I never got any warning lights, except for one time a couple of months ago the engine dropped RPMs altogether and the ETC light flashed for a second.
Since it was a couple of months ago, I thought it was maybe a fluke.
However my battery was dying a few days ago so I had it replaced with a new battery (from our Jeep dealership, not a 3rd party battery). Since then the ETC light has come on four times in the last 2 days. At first I thought it was because I was really low on gas. But I filled it up as soon as I got it back from the dealership, and it happened twice the next day.
Any idea what can be causing this? Also would this be covered under a powertrain warranty? I'm trying to make an appointment with our dealership that I bought it from that has a 2yr-100K mile powertrain warranty, but it's 60 miles away.

My first Jeep, so please be kind.
