Battery light

Today while pulling into my driveway my jeep wouldn't move. The battery light came on it and it kept showing something like shift into appropriate gear. When I tried to push the break it wouldn't go down. It was solid. I finally turned it off and back on and it was fine then. It's only a 2016 with less than 3,000 miles on it. Does anyone know why this may have happened?

You can try getting your battery tested. A few people have had bad batteries. If that's not it, it may have just been a glitch. If so, I'd forget about it and just keep on doing what I do.

Agree with @Len1304, get battery tested. Mine shorted out at about 12k miles on my 2014. Warranty replacement.
