ABS and TC lights

Has anyone else had this happen? The last two times I have gone to play in the mud, after pressure washing the underbody there are no dash lights displaying any problems. Then the next morning my ABS and Traction Control lights illuminate. If I turn off the engine, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on, the lights go away and they don't come back on until I wheel it again. Is this just a bit of extra water clogging the sensors from the pressure washer or a reset after being cleaned?

It worked fine after I washed it for a trip to the grocery and only came on after sitting in the garage for ten hours. BTW it is a 2011 JK Sport, lifted with 33's. Not sure if that would make a difference or not.

If the steering is fine, I had the same issue and it ended up being a bad ABS/wheel speed sensor.

The dealer fixed it without any hassle.

Steering wheel is straight. I had a bad ABS sensor on my front passenger side a year ago and the ABS light came and stayed on all the time. This one only comes on once after pressure washing. I started my Jeep a few times today at work. The light never came on. Weird.
