Jeep Wrangler 4xe Toad

Hello all,

New member but a long time reader. Amazed at wealth of knowledge on this site and willingness of folks to help.

We just purchased a 2022 Wrangler 4xe for a toad. Have now done a couple test runs behind our diesel pusher (2019 Discovery 40D) and each time when we disconnect the Jeep shows a warning to Service Electronic Stability Control. The warning soon clears -within a mile or so of driving. Never saw this with 2018 Wrangler JL that was prior toad. About 9,000 miles of trouble free travel with 2018 since we bought MH in May 2021.

Jeep Dealership service guys don’t know why but are checking computer on vehicle and contacting Jeep to look for info.

Anyone else towing a 4xe seeing similar driver info center codes or have any insight?

Thanks all

Brad

Have you tried turning the ESC function off while towing?

We have not tried turning off ESC prior to towing. We never did on 2018, although now that I think about it, I am not certain the 2018 had ESC. Owners Manual for 2022 does not mention turning ESC off.

This is our first experience with plug in hybrid. Hoping other 4xe owners can share their experiences and maybe any do’s and don’ts.

TIA

Are you following the procedure exactly as it states? Jeeps are tricky like that.

Sorry took while to respond. Dealer checked computer data on Jeep and codes had cleared. He Believes it has to do with jeep electrical system “waking up” intermittently during towing and sensing motion of vehicle without ignition on, and setting the code on vehicle start. When vehicle is driven it sees everything ok and clears code. We have not towed Jeep since. Next trip is in November will see what happens then.

Maybe others with 4xe can chime in with their experiences.

Thanks

Not a 4xe owner but about the sleep wake-up function. In the 2022 ICE wrangler, if it has OEM LED tail lights an additional wire runs to the ecm that will wake up the jeep anytime a brake light is switched on which then tries to self check all kinds of stuff. And throws weird errors.

This is not seen in non OEM LED tail lights.

I used the cooltech.com https://www.cooltechllc.com/towing-h...light-fix.html

Even though it is described as being for battery drain it may stop errors due to tow wiring.

Its a simple air gap double pole switch that works for me.
