Had my "Check Engine" light and my "Traction" (?) Light come on in unison yesterday.
The light I'm calling a "Traction" light is for lack of having my handbook handy to properly identify the symbol of the vehicle, with lightning-bolt like marks below each wheel base.
When I shut off the vehicle, and restarted, the "Traction" light (so called) did NOT come back on, but the "Check Engine" light stayed on.
So, I'm not sure if it is something like one of the sensors failing, or if there is a problem with the traction commands or something.
Obviously I'll be bringing it to the dealership to have them look it over, but I was wondering about the typical kinds of issues relative to the "Check Engine" light, that other 08 JK owners are experiencing.
Currently, I have approx. 10,000 miles on the vehicle.
obviously its under warranty like you said. as far as possibilites, they are endless, that light can mean anything. probably something to do w/ traction control, light went on when there was a prob, but went off, but computer stored the code to keep check engine light on.
is it me, or are there a lot of little issues w/ the jk? seems like i hear a lot of warning lights coming on and stuff with low mileage.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president." http://mybroadband.co.za/photos/data...re_cowbell.gif
Is it the ESP/BAS light with the little jeep skiding around? this happened to me after a sudden stop the other day. The book said if it didn't go away after several restarts and driving it over 30mph to bring it in to the dealer. It did go away just like they said it would so I won't be bringing it in.
Interestingly enough, the idiot light for the "Traction" (which is what I think it was, but I suppose it could have been the "ESP/BAS" light by proper description), and the "Check Engine" light, stopped showing themselves, and never came back after a couple of re-starts.
I have no idea why they came on, or why they went off, but I'll keep watching and see if they return, and then bring it down to the dealer to read the log on the computer.
