Looking for Arthur Conan Doyle

Meaning, I wonder if someone can figure this out. My 2015 Overland has had a problem that has been occurring since I drove it off the lot: throws a MIL Service Shifter only when turning left and only after jeep has been running 15-20 minutes. Dealer could not find source and now they aren't talking to me (seriously). But, had this bizarre experience yesterday: I was trying to install an OBD reader (obdlink mx) which caused the Service Shifter MIL to come on when trying to make connection to my cell phone. Here are the details. Had all kinds of trouble connecting obdlink to my note2 on my jeep. It was paired with phone, no problem. Did multiple resets of obdlink, no help. When trying to connect I would get flashes of messages like, -1, port may be blocked, make sure no other devices connected, make sure obdlink is connected, etc. After awhile, I decided to try obdlink on my 2007 Tundra. Paired immediately, connected and got diagnostic info. So went back to the jeep (I figured that obdlink and my phone could now talk to one another so it should be good to go in another car), plugged in obdlink, turned truck to on position (per instructions), hit Connect on obdlink software on my phone, and for the first time, could see phone searching through connection protocol (it looked like baud rates). The last protocol was, General, and when it hit that (or perhaps the protocol just before it) a curious thing happened: I got an MIL, "Service Shifter." That appeared with audible warning 3 times, and obdlink did not connect. Rebooted everything 3 times and got same results. Could this be a coincidence? I'm getting a Service Shifter message when the car is not even running and seems to be stimulated by an attempt to connect and odb reader and a phone via Bluetooth? And it happens to be the same MIL that is mysteriously, inexplicably occurring when making left turns? And, as far as I can tell, when Service Shifter comes on while driving, nothing else seems to be affected? Can anyone hazard a guess how these two things (obd connection and while driving) might be connected? Even better, does the obd experience point at all as to what is causing Service Shifter to come on while driving? (fyi, I have a similar post up at obdlink forum.) Thanks.
