Go to an autozone and get a scan done and depending on the code you may be okay for 2wks. and also if the check engine light is not blinking.

I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot and every time I drive long distances my car's overheating oil light will come on and it will shut itself down. If I let the car sit for ten minutes it will start fine. I took it to the jeep dealer and they said there were no code wrong with it. And that its a common problem people have and that I just have to deal with it. My car is covered under a lifetime drive-train warranty. I don't know if the dealer is lying to me and theres is a more serious problem. I am moving and am going to be driving a very long distance to work everyday and want to make sure my car is not going to brake down on me in the middle of the dessert. Also I think the dealer is full of crud.

Open the power distribution center box near the battery and remove the asd relay that should shut it down. as for the problem itself, it could be a bad relay, a bad ignition switch or some odd ball thing that needs testing to find.
Good luck!

Jeep 2008 patriot esp light on Malfunction


Check under drivers door sill step. There is a spice I believe the wires are red or pink in color. The splice will be wrapped in black hockey tape looking stuff. Peel the the hockey tape stuff off and you will find that this splice is corroded and not making contact anymore. You can repair this splice and your problems will be fixed. Be sure to use some good heat shrink on your repair to prevent from happening again.
