Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your mechanic automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.
Is any kind of failure generated? You can also tell me where you are located to see if I can help you locate agarage that can help you with a diagnostic equipment, anyway I want to leave you a procedure that you can perform to restart the ECU and thus turn off the indicators:

I will proceed to tell you how to restart your Jeep

1) Proceed first to turn the switch/key or leave the key in the ON position, just before starting the engine.
2) Go to the battery and disconnect ONLY THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL of the battery, leaving the positive connected
3) Wait a few seconds approximately 3 minutes, this rules out all electrical systems

4) Reconnects the battery terminal leaving both connected

5) Remove the suiche from the key

6) Re-start the vehicle.
Please let me know if the manual reset works or if i should help you finding the garage or technician.
