I've been driving the new car fro a week and the P! light popped up since the day after delivery. Usually happens in the morning when I go to work. The P! light goes out every afternoon when I drive back home. Went to the dealer yesterday and they said they have no idea why the P! pops up because the P! wasn't on at that time. I checked the manual and it says the P! refers to electronic parking break failure. However, my EPB works fine. Anyone had this problem before?

Hi Yihan Chen,

Sorry to hear about the P! light on your Jeep Renegade. I checked in the User Guide and this is what I found:
By placing the ignition in MAR position, the light turns on but should go out after a
few seconds. The light comes on when it detects a failure in electric parking brake.
The display shows the message dedicated. Please contact your authorized dealer as
soon as possible.
NOTE:
In this case, with heavy braking the rear wheels may lock early and increase the
possibility of skidding.

Please contact your dealership and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Thank you,

I've been to the dealer and they said they won't be able to do anything if the light is not on. I also noticed that whenever I put the stick into neutral in driving the P! light turns on. Are they related? Btw my car has manual transmission

Did the dealer check for stored error codes??.... could be a faulty ABS module.
I’ve had this problem 3 times now with my 2017 renegade. Never any stored codes, it goes away but my service engine soon light stays on. I find it happens more frequently when it’s cold after being in a hot climate for days (I live in the mountains 40 degrees and go to Phoenix 100 degrees) and if I don’t let it warm up. Also if I forget to disengage it slowly and be patient. Just shut off the car, wait and it usually goes away after playing with it. My car hates cold!!!
