Nothing is wrong, it's an anti skid protection built into the Jeep, slow down on the curves and it won't happen. It can be overridden somehow, by like mashing the button for a while or something. Sorry Idk...

It shouldn't be acting the way you are describing. Did you add a lift or change anything to your suspension lately? If not, you shoul dtake it to the dealer. ESP show only activate when it sense one tire spinning faster than the others. It will then apply the brake to that tire to slow it down.

Yeah it just started doing it the last couple of days; i'll snap a few.......tire pressure normal, i drive the speed limit, no sharp corners..........the suspension looks ok; nothing loose. Maybe a defective sensor?

Are you still under warranty? I'd take it in ASAP. I had a problem like this with an older Cherokee and it had major issues including the master cylinder. It also could be a module failure with the ESP system or a sensor.

This happened to me once after taking off slow from a stop too but I can't recall if the ABS light was also on. The lights went off after the next time I drove the Jeep. I hate all this electronic mumbo jumbo If it hasn't gone off after a few drives have it looked at.

The same thing happened to me this past winter. It also kills the cruise control. I took it in and it was a bad wheel sensor.

That was one of the things wrong with mine as well. Makes sense as that will cause the ABS light and that in turn will light the ESP/BAS as this system cannot function without ABS.

you definatley have to take it to a dealer. I am an employee of continental teves who makes the esp for the jeep the only thing that would cause this to happen is a faulty abs switch.

Oh ok, I stand corrected... Glad you guys chimed in.. On my Charger it does that and it's normal... if you're on wet pavement and spinning tires or something....

My bad I forgot. The first time I took mine in they replaced the wheel sensor and thy didn't fix it. Then they replaced the ABS module and that took care of it. It IS the ABS mod. Good luck!

It IS normal under those circumstances. His is going on for no reason.

Isn't that the most accurate response. A dealer once tried to tell me how bad I needed my diffs changed at 18K on my old 06 when I took it in for a routine oil change. The Jeep was under warranty... so the dealer wanted money any way possibly. So they pulled put this Chrysler chart one how every so many miles the Jeep needed "this" and "that". I didn't know any better and so I let them change the diffs. The oil change bill went up to nearly $400 in memory serves.

Never again... never. If a Jeep or car is under warranty and you take it in, they will try to hit you up for whatever they can to get money... show them this --->

As far as the warranty thing, chrysler does'nt honor subsequent owners; i'm the second owner so the warranty does squat for me........... But i'll eat my spinach this time around; why do they have to jack around with the jeep by putting sensors all over it to "help" you stablize or handle your jeep???? Hell, i thought the whole fun of having a jeep is the learning curve of driving, customizing, and finally mastering the whole jeep experience, as i put it. I love my 08' but sometimes i wish i had a CJ or YJ stripped down bare bones where the only thing electrical is the battery, alternator, plugs, and splattered fireflies on the windshield............oh well, thats all i have to say about that.......

Is there a book/manual for JK's that outlines all the service needs. I have zero experience with anything beyond an oil change, but I would like to handle everything on my jeep that I can. I'm smart enough to learn most things with written directions and a few illustrations. I would also love a book for JK mods. I know they are out there, I just wondered if you guys could recommend one in particular. I'm sure this info is in a thread on here, but feel free to chime in if you have a favorite resource.

Well good news on my end; the dealership called and said it was a bad wheel sensor. They also addressed a few recall items, the tow bar and something to do with the cooling system sensor or something like that......maybe it was a muffler bearing.....ANYWAY, the total bill was $167.00....... I can live with that!

Yep a bad wheel sensor will set off the BAS/Lights. problem is the part is only $15 bucks and if you can change a flat you can unscrew the sensor and plug in the new one.

Hey guys,

I have been reading the above posts...and here is my story

My ABS, Traction control (swerving lines) icon, ESP/BAS and E-Brake lights are all on. I was having issues braking as my brakes were not engaging all of the way. Even flew threw a stop light once and stopped in the middle of the intersection. Thank god no one was there. Anyways...my traction control light kept coming on intermittently and finally just stayed on. Took it in and Jeep had no idea what was going on. Codes read, wheel speed comparative performance for both left and right wheels.

Touched base with my buddy who is a Master Mechanic with Jeep and this is what he did. He put it on the diagnostics like a heartbeat monitor for the jeep. It read the rear ABS fine but the front were flat lined. Stated there was an open circuit in the lines that was not allowing the ABS to read. When initially starting the car...this happens half the time...my ABS engages and will not let me drive normally. I can floor the jeep but I only go 5-10 mph until I hit the traction control button then it disengages the ABS and I can drive normally.

I have tried locating the open circuit but was not able to find anything. I am getting ready to replace the ABS module and see if that helps. If not...its back to the drawing board.

____________________


As far as the going around corners at slightly higher speeds and your ABS kicking in....either your steering wheel is not centered which will cause that light to turn on...or your axle is off centered. You can center it yourself on the ground no problem. Loosen the trackbar center coupling bolts...that center linkage rotates to move the axle either left or right. That bracket is opposite threaded so either way it turns...it either goes out...or goes in. Use a tape measure to measure the distance between the frame and inside of the tire...be sure to use the same location on both sides and center the axle....easy fix and be sure to tighten the bolts back on the trackbar...very important as if you don't....death wobble could occur. Trust me...I KNOW!!!!
