Check the sensors at the wheels. From what I've read that is mostly the cause.
Especially if you put a lift in and drooped the axle too much during install without disconnecting them.

ABS light is the key one. Sensor wire/sensor bad. The ESP/BAS and traction control lights could be a sensor or the steering wheel misaligned.

There's got to be an error code in the ABS Module. What is it?
I've had major problems myself.

I'm going through this now. With the key trick I pulled code U1418 and replaced the front sensor. No change and the jeep will not go past 20mph. Both ABS and traction control are still on. So now it's at the dealer.

Centering your steering wheel is easy and that will throw an ESC light. Just loosen the 2 nuts on your drag link and turn the turnbuckle by hand. It's easier if someone is in the rig to tell you when it's straight but I have adjusted mine a couple of times. Don't spend money on that as it's so easy.

Beware, my Jeep is doing the same thing. Technician noted "veh has aftermarket headlights and an installed CB radio." They will look for ANYTHING to blame so they don't have to do it.

I will sit in a lawn chair outside the dealership every weekend with banners about the Chrysler warranty experience if I have to. That should help their sales.

Update-- Turns out it was the right rear and something (forgot what ) needed to be reprogram. it was only $236

Likely a broken wire or bad wheel speed sensor. The wheel speed sensors supply information for all three systems.

Check both of your battery terminals and make sure they are not loose. This will also cause electrical issues. FWIW...

How did you figure out which sensor was bad? Did you have to take it to the stealer? My 2013 JKU just started doing this yesterday.

The mechanic happened to be standing at the parts counter when I was at the dealer. He said the left rear is usually the bad one, didn't give a reason though. I was just gonna change them all.
I heard that you can pull them out and clean them because the dust, dirt , and grime are the culprits. So I cleaned the others with warm dish soap.

Just got this fixed by the stealership. The wheel speed sensors checked out ok. It was the brake light controller. Its a $15 part - I didn't have to pay since it was under warranty and no idea what the labor would cost.

So if I'm reading the thread correctly your dashboard also had the Abs,esp,bas, light up which caused your vehicle not to be able to accelerate . And the dealership said it was the brake light controller...?

I managed to cut the right rear sensor wire twice, between the bump stop and the mount that the bump stop pad goes into. It was easy enough to splice at home.

It accelerated fine. The lights just went haywire. The brake light controller - not stop lamp seemed to fix it.
