Please help new rubicon owner

Hey everyone I just bought a 09 rubicon. On the test drive I used the lockers and swaybar release. That was two days ago. I tried it today. Nothing would work. Not locker button not sway bar not esp So I obviously freak out. I ruined a date night away from the two year old. The hazards and 12 volt outlets worked fine although no lights Well after a lot freaking out I pull dash apart unplug harness that plugs into the locker/sway ba esp module. And works instantly. Is this common?

If you bought it two days ago from a dealer take it back and see if they'll fix it. I ran into a similar situation and my dealer took care of it. What do you have to lose?

Should I assume you are doing it correctly?

I don't have any of that fancy stuff on my jeep. I just break out the tools when I want to disconnect the sway bar...
