ESC off and 4WD Service light Warnings

Hi, can anyone suggest a possible reason for the following?

Picked up my new Alpine yesterday, went out for dinner, got back in the car and started the engine and a "ESC off" symbol came on in the rev counter dial and a "4WD SERV" light came on in the EVIC panel. Turned the engine on and off a few times and it went away, when I got in the car to drive to work this morning the same thing happened but the lights stayed on!

Picture attached

cheers

Jas

Re: ESC off and 4WD Service light Warnings

I had the same thing happen to my srt at 160 km . Turned out to be the 4wd actuator motor attached to the rear diff. Took dealer 1 week to get the part and fix.
That really sucks , the worst part was waiting for it to get fixed.

Thanks Donsteph,

Did your lights go off when the car is warmed up? That seems to be the case with mine, anyway the dealer is looking at it so hopefully all will be smailes soon.

cheers

No. Once the light came on it did not go out.

Problem solved the dealer identified a loose connection underneath the car.

It's all good now no issues, dealer service was great.
