'08 Compass Warning Lights
I just had an unusual experience with my '08 Jeep Compass. I was returning home after a 2 hour highway trip, where I had the cruise on the whole way. As I pulled into the city, I had shut off the cruise and slowed down to the in city speed limit of 50 km/h. The light was red, so I stopped and when the light turned green, I attempted to accelerate as normal. However, it sputtered and the ETC light started flashing and the ESP light came on and stayed on. I pulled into a parking lot, turned the engine off and started it again and the lights turned off and it ran fine. I stopped at the gas station before heading home, and turned the vehicle on and off again and it was fine.
As I wasn't sure what the symbols meant, I checked the owners manual and it says when the ETC light flashes, I should get it checked immediately. The dealer in town is closed until tomorrow, but my question is since the lights went off and it seemed to run fine, should I bother taking it in?
I had it in a week ago for an oil change and to check the Malfunction Indicator Light. The code it threw was a charging/starting/ignition systems problem, but the mechanics found no reason for the problem. So was this a warning for what happened or are they not related at all?
